Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference feature traveled every which way this year without another MacBook Pro — however it would appear that that wasn’t the first plan! Intriguingly, Apple discreetly incorporated the expressions “M1X MacBook Pro” and “M1X” as labels on its YouTube video of the live featured discussion, as spotted by Max Balzer (by means of 9to5Mac).
Not only does that sound like implicit affirmation of at least one new Arm-powered MacBook Pro, it likewise substantiates the reports that it’ll incorporate another M1 chip, and that Apple will probably market it as an upgraded “X” variant, similar to it used to do with its top of the line iPads, as opposed to going directly to M2. (Or on the other hand, as some are bringing up, it could imply that somebody in the social media group decided to try for SEO support and made it up.)
Three weeks prior, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman detailed that we’d see overhauled 14-and 16-inch MacBook Pros “as early as this summer,” ones that would bring back the SD card opening, HDMI port, and some type of the cherished outing agreeable MagSafe charging connector; offer twice as some superior CPU and GPU cores; and backing up to 64GB of RAM.
Maybe that was the first thought, however we got a totally jam-packed keynote loaded up with rapid-fire software announcements instead.
