Apple is all set to hold a launch event on Monday at 10 a.m. (Pacific Time) which will be its second fall event of the year.
According to The Verge, the Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to launch more powerful MacBook Pros, new AirPods as well as a Mac mini.
The upcoming MacBook Pro lineup will consist of a new 14-inch as well as a new 16-inch model powered by an M1X processor, likely paired with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage for the base variant.
The new MacBook Pro will feature a standard-sized notch. Instead of containing a Face ID TrueDepth camera like on the iPhone, the MacBook Pro’s notch apparently houses a 1080p webcam, a True Tone sensor, and a microphone.
Apple’s use of mini-LED panels in its forthcoming MacBook lineups will catalyze supplier investment and push the entire industry toward the adoption of display technology.
The iPhone maker may also launch a more powerful Mac mini, featuring the same processor found in the updated MacBook Pros and more ports than are currently available on the M1-powered Mini.
The new version of the AirPods Pro may come with motion sensors to enable better fitness tracking.
An image of the upcoming AirPods 3 reveals the earphones’ design which seems to be inspired by the Pro variant. It may come with a short stem and a sensor, as well as a microphone on the front.
Based on previous rumors, the new AirPods models are expected to feature a new design that resembles the shape of the current-generation AirPods Pro, notably featuring shorter stems on the earbuds themselves.
However, the AirPods 3 are not expected to feature active noise cancellation features — which will remain exclusive to AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, the report said.
The launch event will be live-streamed across Apple’s website, on the company’s YouTube channel, and via the Apple TV application on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.
