Apple October Event: M1X Macs, AirPods 3, and more

Check out our complete list of things Apple may reveal at its October event, which includes M1X MacBook Pros, AirPods 3, and more.

The iPhone 13, a new entry-level iPad, and an all-new iPad mini were all unveiled during Apple’s September presentation. Apple has a lot more planned for the rest of 2021, and it has set a date for an event on October 18 to make these announcements.

Apple has officially announced that this year’s October event will be on October 18 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. Like all of Apple’s recent events, this one will be completely virtual due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Apple is teasing the event with the tagline “Unleashed.”

The October 18 event will be live-streamed across Apple’s website, on the company’s YouTube channel, and via the Apple TV application on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV. We’ll have more details on how to watch when event day rolls around.

At Apple’s October event, the headlining announcement we expect is the long-rumored MacBook Pro overhaul. Apple is rumored to be working on new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that are powered by a so-called “M1X” processor.

Bloomberg has reported that the new M1X chip, or whatever it ends up being called, will feature eight high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores, available in either 16 or 32 graphics core variations. The machine is also expected to support up to 64GB of RAM, compared to the current M1 chip that is limited to 16GB of RAM.

The new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are also expected to use new mini-LED display technology. Apple first used mini-LED technology in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro announced earlier this year. For those unfamiliar, mini-LED relies on thousands of really small LEDs in the backlight, which results in higher contrast ratios and deeper blacks, similar to OLED but without the risk of burn-in.

A recent report from Display Supply Chain Consultants analyst Ross Young also indicated that the new MacBook Pros will feature 120Hz refresh rate support for the first time. Young has previously reported a number of details about the display technology for upcoming Apple products, including the exact screen size of the new iPad mini 6.
