Apple going to warp speed with new MacBooks Pro and more, 18 Oct in US, 4am 19 Oct in Australia Featured


Apple's M1 processor, set to be upgraded to what is rumoured as the M1X, will be powering the hyper speeds of Apple's long-awaited new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, while new AirPods, macOS 12 Monterey and more are set to be introduced - or as Apple puts it - UNLEASHED. 

Set your phasers to stun, because Apple is once again set to unveil its latest hardware and software in another event to be broadcast from Apple Park, within Apple's famously round and large headquarters.

All the rumours about new MacBook Pro models featuring a more powerful M1X processor, along with a redesigned chassis, 14-inch and 16-inch screens, macOS 12 Monetary and no doubt various other surprises are set to be unleashed upon the world.

Will Apple finally put an iPhone or iPad-class front-facing camera above the screens?

What new ports are being re-introduced, per the rumours? An HDMI port? As SD card slot?More USB-C and Thunderbolt ports?

Will the Touch Bar be there? Will it be larger?

What will battery life be like?

Will 5G connectivity via eSIM or SIM card be built in, at last?

And will we see an M1X processor, or will Apple introduce an M2?

Personally, I suspect it will be the M1X, which signifies a leap beyond the M1 processors in the existing iMacs, MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro, but no so big a leap that the M1-based Macs feel "outdated", but Apple never let what other people think get it in the way of doing what it feels is the right move.

And with macOS 12 Monterey finally launched at last, will Apple unveil the "Universal Control" feature that lets you use your Mac's keyboard and mouse to control your iPad, or will that feature still be set to come in the weeks and months ahead?

There are also questions about the new AirPods 3 model that are expected to look like AirPods Pro but supposedly without the active noise cancelling that AirPods Pro offer.

What else might Apple unveil? The company has launched new iPhones and iPads this year, so this is probably the final tranche of new products for 2021, but only those in Apple's inner circle and across Apple's supply chain know the truth.

Will we see a 27-inch or 32-inch iMac or iMac Pro with M1X processor?

An upgraded iPad Air with 5G and Center Stage?

Or an entirely new surprise, a new "one more thing" that few, if any, saw coming?

The answers will be unveiled at 10am PDT on October 18 in the US, which is 4am AEDT on October 19 for Australians.
