Rumors about Apple MacBook Pro 2021
It’s getting more and more probable that the MacBook Pro 14-inch 2021 will be released this autumn. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman said in his weekly Power-On newsletter that the MacBook Pro 2021 versions “should still be releasing in the coming weeks.”
Since the original ARM-based Apple Silicon processor was dubbed the Apple M1, the next iteration of this chip is anticipated to be dubbed the M1X. According to one source, Apple is working on a 20-core Apple Silicon CPU for its 2021 Macs. This is a substantial improvement over the company’s current 8-core (4 high-performance, 4 high-efficiency) processors.
A new 14-inch mini-LED display, more connections (including HDMI and SD card), a flat-edge design, and MagSafe charging are also rumored. There’s also a late-breaking report that the MacBook Pro 2021 will include a display notch.
Along with the MacBook Pro 14-inch 2021, the MacBook Pro 16-inch 2021 is expected to be released soon. And it’s turning out to be quite the machine. Apple is anticipated to feature a mini-LED display and a strong M1X processor, as well as the reintroduction of much-needed HDMI and SD card connections, as well as MagSafe charging.
Another significant change looming for the 2021 MacBook Pro is the removal of the Touch Bar. The touchscreen band is being replaced with a set of physical keys identical to those present on previous laptops and pre-2016 MacBooks, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
Rumors about Apple AirPods 3
The AirPods 3 are expected to make their debut at the upcoming Apple presentation. Following the success of the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, Apple can solidify its position as the finest wireless headphones by updating its entry-level earbuds.
The AirPods 3 allegedly went into commercial production in August, as Apple reduced manufacturing of the current-generation AirPods. However, with the surge in counterfeit AirPods sales, it’s impossible to know whether additional leaks are reliable.
According to some rumors, the newest model would resemble the AirPods Pro sans the ear tips, while others claim the AirPods 3 will include flexible ear tips. There are also contradictory claims regarding the incorporation of active noise cancellation.
The bulk of the AirPods 3’s important features are expected to be available in iOS 15 updates. The buds may support Dolby Atmos and spatial audio to provide a more dramatic experience. Support for automatic switching, Headphones Accommodation for boosting quiet noises and frequency shifts, and Hearing Health, which has been updated to offer alerts while listening to excessively loud music, are also anticipated.
Rumors about Apple Mac Mini M1X
Rumors have circulated about an updated Mac mini featuring an M1X processor and maybe a redesigned design. The jury is still out on whether or not this device will be unveiled at the upcoming Apple event.
According to iDrop News, a source in Apple’s marketing reports that Apple had intended to introduce a new Mac mini with the forthcoming MacBook Pros, but would delay the introduction to allow the laptop to “shine.”
However, according to the same rumor, supply chain insider knowledge indicates that manufacturing on a new Mac mini is heating up. As a result, there’s a chance a new Mac mini may be unveiled shortly; the precise date is unknown.
