Apple May Release M1X MacBook Pro, Mac mini in Q4, Claims Leaker

The rumour mill has been rife with reports of Apple launching a new, redesigned MacBook Pro and Mac mini featuring the next-generation of Apple Silicon, “M1X”, sometime this year.

In a massive tease, Apple even added the term M1X MacBook Pro” as a tag to its WWDC keynote on YouTube earlier this month. A

ccording to 9to5Mac, Apple plans on launching new versions of the 14-inch MacBook Pro, the 16-inch MacBook Pro, and the Mac mini, all with new Apple silicon, in the fourth quarter of this year.

The information comes from @dylandkt, an Apple analyst who has had a fair bit of accuracy predicting details of unreleased products in the past. The leaker claims that all three products will be launching at an Apple event in “late October or early November.”

The same analyst also believes that the new M1X System-on-a-Chip (SoC) is going to be “an extension of the M1 that will contain more thunderbolt channels, CPU cores, GPU cores, multiple external monitor support, and greater power draw.”

There have been other reports of the 2021 MacBook Pro models not launching until late in the year as well.

However, Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman, who reported last month that Apple plans on launching new, M1X-equipped versions of every device across the Mac range, expects the two new MacBook Pros to be announced as early as sometime in the summer.
