Watch Apple Event – October 18, new MacBook, M1X chip
What will Apple announce at October 18th product launch?
Rumours have it that the new MacBooks could launch with a notch just like the iPhones. But iDevice Care GH believes that despite the notch, the new generation MacBook Pros won’t include Face ID support. It also notes macOS Monterey beta may have shown us the screen resolutions of the 14 and 16-inch devices: 3024 × 2160 and 3456 × 2234 respectively.
We hear the new Apple silicon chip M1X will be more powerful than the previous M1 chips. Featuring a 10-core CPU, with eight being high-performance and two being high-efficiency cores. The M1X chip will have a GPU with either 16 or 32 core options to choose from. Expectations are that the new chip will be able to support up to 64GB of RAM.
Others expect Apple to announce the official release date of macOS Monterey. Which was announced at WWDC in June and is currently in public preview. The new OS features include FaceTime updates, a redesigned and streamlined Safari, Universal and Shortcuts, and Focus.
