Apple set to launch all-new MacBook Pro with M1X chip

Apple has sent out invitations to an event scheduled for October 18, which is expected to showcase the introduction of the MacBook Pro with M1X processor. In addition to the phrase “Unleashed,” which suggests that the company’s all-new chipset, which is expected to be the successor to the M1 chip, would be unveiled, there is no further information on the invitation.

Apple is scheduled to unveil the all-new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models at a special launch event on October 18 in San Francisco. However, the M1X CPU, which will be the successor to the M1 microprocessor that was introduced last year, will be the most significant thing to keep an eye out for during CES.

The new MacBook Pro is said to include a mini-LED display and to include an HDMI port as well as an SD card slot, among other features. Apple is anticipated to remove the touch bar and replace it with the classic function keys in the near future, according to reports. We don’t expect a significant redesign of the upcoming MacBook Pro models, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed anyway. Aside from the MacBook Pro, Apple is also expected to announce the release date for macOS Monterey at the same time.

While there aren’t many hints, it’s possible that Apple may also unveil the AirPods 3 at the same event. However, we’re not so sure about this one, so stay tuned.

Apple’s senior vice president of marketing, Greg Joswiak, has published a video in which the company’s next MacBook Pro is teased for its system speed. Apple’s October 18 launch event will take place on a Monday, which is unusual for the company’s launch events, but it appears that we will be in for a pleasant surprise.

To recall, Apple introduced the M1 chip in the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini models last November, when they first went on sale. The Mac event held last year was dubbed the “One More Thing” event, and it served as the company’s final major event before the September launches of the Apple Watch and iPad, which were followed by the October debut of the iPhone.

The M1-based MacBook Air price in India started at Rs 92,900 for the model with an 8-core CPU and a 7-core GPU, while the 512GB model with an 8-core CPU and an 8-core GPU was priced at Rs 1,17,900. Starting at Rs 1,22,900, the 13-inch MacBook Pro was available in India for purchase.
