During Apple’s WWDC event that took place on Monday, Apple accidentally left a tag of M1X on its YouTube event video that strongly suggests that M1X Macbook Pro might be around the corner.
In November last year, Apple unveiled the 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro alongside the M1 MacBook Air. Since then, rumors have circulated concerning the introduction of a redesigned MacBook Pro with new Apple silicon chips. According to a few renowned tech analysts, the M1X MacBook Pro was to debut at the WWDC in 2021, but Apple didn’t introduce any hardware update in the event possibly due to the shortage in chipset manufacturing facilities around the world.
During the WWDC event on Monday, Apple announced the latest iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey with some powerful on-device intelligence to do more with your Apple devices than ever before.
M1X MacBook Specifications
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the touch bar will be replaced by physical keys. This rumour has been further confirmed by fresh renders of the MacBook Pro 16. Apart from this, the laptop may also get support for Magsafe charging. The M1X Macbook may feature slimmer bezels with a square edge design similar to what we have seen on iPhone 12 and the refreshed iPad Pro. MicroSD, HDMI, and a few thunderbolt ports will be available on the MacBook Pro M1X. A 1080p web camera might be added to the laptop. The device is also believed to be equipped with a micro-LED display.
M1X MacBook expected launch date
The MacBook Pro M1X did not appear at WWDC 2021 event. According to rumours, the laptop will be available by the end of the year, around the same time that iPhone 13 models might launch. According to sources, the production of the two MacBook Pro models has been pushed back from May/June to the second half of 2021. As a result, a September launch appears probable.
