WWDC 2021 probably wasn’t as compelling as lot of Apple-invested folks thought it would be especially with all those rumors of new hardware, but consistent with a leakster, we could be only a few months away from seeing a bunch of Apple hardware come to the fore.
According to a leakster, two MacBook Pro models and one Mac mini are expected to arrive within the fourth quarter of this year, with all three machines fueled by Apple’s much-talked about M1X chipset.
On Twitter, dylandkt believes that both the M1X MacBook Pro models, which can likely include a 14-inch and a 16-inch version, along side a Mac mini, will launch in late October or early November. Since we did see Apple announce its M1-running MacBook products last year on 10th November, dylandkt’s prediction could hold merit, but tons could happen within the coming months.
From what’s know, both the M1X MacBook Pro models are expected to feature mini-LED screens a bit like the M1 iPad Pro. Unfortunately, Apple has run into supply issues with this particular component, and to mitigate those problems, the Cupertino giant has reportedly added another supplier to assist with production slow-downs.
Even then, Apple isn’t expected to start out production of the new portable Macs until late 2021, and since the Mac mini can’t be announced as a standalone product since it’ll deduct the spotlight from the MacBook Pro family, it’ll likely be unveiled alongside the 14-inch and 16-inch notebooks.
Unfortunately, customers expecting Apple to unveil a workstation featuring its own silicon are going to be highly disappointed, as dylandkt states that the iMac Pro won’t be showcased at Apple’s upcoming event.
