Apple has effectively updated the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch for the holiday season, yet we’re actually looking out for an update to the Mac lineup. There have been a lot of bits of gossip about a completely updated MacBook Pro coming out this fall, and the reliable Mark Gurman at Bloomberg detailed in his Power On newsletter that a M1X-powered MacBook Pro will show up “in the next month.” Apple has commonly held Mac-focused events in October or early November; the first M1-based Macs were reported toward the beginning of November of the year before.
As indicated by 9to5Mac, Gurman predicts that there will be two M1X variants, both 10-core processors with eight high-performance cores and two proficiency cores. The difference between the two chips are in the graphics department — Apple might be offering a M1X with one or the other 16 or 32 graphics cores. Concerning Apple’s different Macs, Gurman says that the organization is working on a high-performance chip for a future Mac Pro, and a M2 for the MacBook Air, iMac and lower-end MacBook Pro models.
Tales have twirled the entire year about Apple’s next MacBook Pro revision; the first 13-inch M1 model that was released the previous fall was basically indistinguishable from the one it supplanted, beside the Apple Silicon inside. What’s more, Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro hasn’t been updated since it was released in late 2019, so the entire lineup is expected for a refresh.
Potential changes incorporate new 14-and 16-inch models with a redesigned case that will bring back more ports like HDMI and an SD card slot. It may likewise bring back a MagSafe-style power charging port, and Apple is relied upon to drop the Touch Bar, which was first presented with the 2016 MacBook Pro update.
