From older MacBook to the latest iPhone, MagSafe technology has advanced over the years and this year, this MagSafe charging technology is said to back on the new MacBook Pro models, giving the device a more premium look and feel. SD Card slot is also rumoured to be back on the redesigned Apple laptops.
Speaking of processors, Apple is said to bring in the M1X Apple silicon chip that will be way more powerful than its predecessor M1 chip. The M1X is speculated to have a 10 core CPU with 8 cores for performance and 2 cores for efficiency, and either 16 or 32 graphic cores in the chip, as mentioned in a report by Engadget.
