Apple has been in the news ever since it launched its M1 chipsets last year which first featured in MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Now, the company is all set to launch the successor to M1 today at its ‘Unleashed’ event. Today, Apple is expected to launch its new range of MacBooks with an M1X chipset.
Apart from MacBooks, the tech giant is also expected to launch a Mac Mini computer with M1 X SoC and AirPods 3 during an online event today. Let us have a look at what we know about these new launches.
Apple ‘Unleashed’ Event: When and Where to watch
Apple will flag off its event at 10:30 pm IST tonight. It will be live-streamed on Apple’s website, Apple TV App, and YouTube.
M1X MacBook Pro
The new model of MacBook Pro is expected to be more convenient in the productivity department because it will use the M1X processor. It is expected to use 16 performance cores and up to 32 GPU cores which could give a good boost to its performance. 2 variants of the M1X are expected to be launched that would depend on GPU cores and will power 14-inch and 16-inch models of MacBook Pro. The base model will reportedly have 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage.
M1X will give pro users the power to run heavy apps and is expected to have a flat-edge design to complement the looks of the iPhone 14 and iPad Pro. The MagSafe port, HDMI port, an SD Card reader may return and the MacBook Pro is also expected to use a Mini-LED display which was launched earlier on iPad Pro. It might also feature a 1080p webcam for better-resolution video calls. The touch bar might be discarded and the overall design may become more practical.

Several leaked photos have surfaced online which reveal it to come with a design similar to that of the AirPods Pro but without silicone ear tips. Each end of the AirPod earbud will have a plastic opening. AirPods 3 is not expected to have the premium ANC feature and will most probably cost the same as AirPods 2 because of no new feature upgrades.
