Apple has officially confirmed its second fall event after months of rumours and speculations circulating on the internet. The Cupertino-based tech giant has announced to host its October launch event on October 18. The tech giant hosted the iPhone event last month to announce the next generation iPhones including the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Pro, the iPhone 13 mini, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
At the October event next week, the company is expected to announce new Macbook Pro models, AirPods 3, Mac mini, and more. Apple, however, hasn’t exactly revealed the products that will be announced at the virtual event. The tech giant is said to announce the much-awaited MacBook Pro lineup powered by the all-new M1X processor.
The upcoming MacBook Pro is tipped to arrive in two versions – one with a 14-inch and the second one with a 16-inch screen. Past reports suggest that the new MacBook Pro models will pack a flat-edged design similar to the iPad Pro. Some of the other features that the new MacBook Pro lineup is expected to include are — an improved M1X processor, additional GPU cores, an HDMI port, an SD card slot, and more.
Additionally, the tech giant is likely to announce a high-end Mac mini. This model is said to be more powerful and include features such as a plexiglass-like top, several Thunderbolt ports, a MagSafe power connector, a magnetic charging connector, among others.
The much awaited AirPods 3 truly wireless earbuds are also likely to launch at the October Apple event next week. Reports suggest the AirPods 3 will feature similar built-in features like the AirPods Pro. Some of these features include — spatial audio support, a shorter stem, a smaller charging case, and more. Past report suggests that AirPods 3 will not come with support for Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). No further details about the AirPods 3 have been revealed yet.
