Washington (US): After Apple’s big iPhone 13 event last month, the company turned its attention to other devices in its lineup, such as the MacBook Pro and Mac mini. As per reports, tech giant Apple is likely to come out with a new MacBook Pro this month.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is likely to launch new MacBook Pro laptops “in the coming weeks.” Gurman says Apple typically launches new Macs in October.
Reportedly, the new laptop will be featuring Apple’s new M1X chip and it is likely that the chip will come out in two variants, both with 10 CPU cores and with either 16 or 32 GPU cores. Last year, Apple had followed its iPhone launch event with a November event. During the November event, the company launched the first MacBooks with a new, Apple-designed chip, the Apple M1. Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro hasn’t been updated since it was released in late 2019, so the whole lineup is due for a refresh.
Apart from this, there are rumours doing the rounds that Apple is also preparing for the launch of new, third-generation AirPods. As for Apple’s other Macs, Gurman says that the company is working on a high-performance chip for a future Mac Pro, and an M2 for the MacBook Air, iMac and lower-end MacBook Pro models.
