Apple’s next presentation of new devices will rise on Monday. The “Unleashed” keynote is likely to revolve around new portable Apple Silicon Macs, but one or two surprises can also be expected. There are now fresh rumors from several leakers and hardware experts.
Hardware design and new webcam
For example, Dylankt, an Apple observer on Twitter who has been correct in predictions in the past, claims he has heardthat Apple will not make any differences in the basic configuration of the expected MacBook Pro models with M1X SoC. Both supposedly come with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD as standard, and supposedly even the (presumably higher) prices are similar. For the first time, both machines have a mini LED display, thinner display bezels without a logo at the bottom of the screen and, for the first time, 1080p webcams. Apple is supposed to change the power supply unit – possibly to match a new MagSafe interface that allows magnetically secured charging, as it was known in the past.
120 Hertz finally with a MacBook?
Meanwhile, Ross Young, an expert in screen technology, speaks of Apple’s new Mac displays a dynamic refresh rate of up to 120 Hertz for the first time missed – this is currently only available on iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPad Pro models. Again, Dylankt is unsure of this and commented that he had only heard of prototypes; he just doesn’t know whether the technology will really come for the Mac. Signs of such technology in the beta version of macOS 12 alias Monterey have not yet penetrated, but possible new resolutions of the fresh machines.
Mac mini and AirPods 3
In addition to the new MacBook Pro models, a third incarnation of the AirPods is also expected. The design should be based on the AirPods Pro, but come without active noise cancellation (ANC). Their price should be roughly the same as their predecessors. There is also speculation about new Mac mini models with M1X chips, but not much has been heard about this recently. It will also be interesting what Apple is doing with the current M1 and latest Intel MacBooks; some observers believe that they could stay on the market at the same time.
