New MacBook Pro laptops, AirPods 3 and what more to expect at Apple Unleashed Event | Gadgets Now



Last week, Apple sent out invites for an online ‘Unleashed’ event. The event comes almost a month after the launch of Apple Watch series 7 and iPhone 13 lineup. The second fall event of the company is expected to be around new Macs. It is likely that we will get to see the new MacBook Pros models along with a couple of other products. Here are more details about the October 18 ‘Unleashed’ event:



Apple event: Time and how to watch it

The Apple event will be held at 10 am PDT (around 10:30 pm IST). You can watch the event online on Apple’s website, the company’s official YouTube channel and via Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV.



Apple MacBook Pro: New size

According to rumours, Apple will launch two new MacBook Pros at the event. Currently, the company has a 13-inch and a 16-inch MacBook Pro models in its line up and it is expected that the company will unveil a new 14-inch model along with a 16-inch model.



Apple MacBook Pro: More ports

The new Apple MacBook Pro models are likely to get an HDMI port and an SD card reader. As of now, the company only offers Type-C ports in the Pro models.



Apple MacBook Pro: May miss out on TouchBar

Apple introduced TouchBar for MacBook Pro models back in 2016. It is an OLED touchscreen that sits just above the keyboard and it offers quick access to shortcuts. Although it may look like a dynamic feature, it wasn’t liked by everybody. So, it is rumoured that the company will ditch the TouchBar in the upcoming models.



Apple MacBook Pro: Processor

Last year, the company unveiled its own silicon-based processor called the M1 and it is expected that the upcoming MacBook Pros will feature the successor of M1 called the M1X.



Apple MacBook Pro: RAM

Currently, the M1 processor comes with maximum 16GB of RAM. Previous generation Intel-powered MacBooks went up to 32GB of RAM. Rumours suggest that the M1X processor could offer support of up to 64GB RAM. If true then it will be quite a quantum leap for MacBook Pro.



Apple MacBook Pro: Display and webcam

The upcoming MacBook Pro models are likely to have mini-LED displays with up to 120Hz of refresh rate. The models are expected to feature a display resolution of 3024×1964 and 3456×2234 respectively. Further, the webcam is also expected to have 1080p webcams, which will be upgrade on the current 720p.



Apple MacBook Pro: Charging options

Apple may bring MagSafe charging in favour of the Type-C currently found in MacBook. It is also expected that Apple could make the charger smaller in size but it’s not known how many watts it will support.



Apple AirPods 3

It is expected that along with the new MacBook Pro models, the company will also launch the new-genration Airpods. It has been almost three years since the tech giant last launched new earbuds. According to older reports, the upcoming earbuds entered production last month.



Apple AirPods 3: Specifications

The rumoured AirPods 3 are said to look similar to the current generation AirPods Pro with shorter stem and redesigned charging case. The earbuds are also likely to get new chipset that’ll boost the Lossless Audio feature introduced by Apple’s music streaming platform.



Apple Mac mini

Apart from the new AirPods and MacBook Pro models, it is rumoured that the company will also unveil the new Mac mini.



Apple Mac mini: Design

The new Apple Mac mini is rumoured to look similar to the current Mac mini but with a smaller footprint. Reports also suggest that the device will have a plexiglass like top over the aluminium enclosure. Although it may have similar ports as on the current models, It is expected that the company will swap the magnetic power port that was introduced for the 24-inch iMac.



Apple Mac mini: Processor

The upcoming Apple Mac mini will likely be powered by the same M1X chip that is expected on the new MacBook Pro models.
