When there are a lot of new items coming out in the autumn, Apple usually conducts a second event in October or November, which is what will happen in 2021.
We’ve already seen hints of 3024 x 1964 and 3456 x 2234 resolutions, which would enable 2x Retina for sharper, crisper images and text, on the 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, and we’ve already seen hints of 3024 x 1964 and 3456 x 2234 resolutions, respectively, which would enable 2x Retina for sharper, crisper images and text. The M1X processor, which is a faster, more powerful version of the M1, will be used in the next MacBook Pro, and it might handle up to 32GB of RAM.
MagSafe connection, which will replace USB-C, will make a comeback with the next MacBook Pro. Apple is also putting back the HDMI port and SD card slot, as well as eliminating the Touch Bar in favor of a regular function row of buttons. The 2021 MacBook Pro models will be a reversion to the pre-2016 MacBook Pro looks, with Apple reversing several of the 2016 redesign’s modifications.
We expected the AirPods 3 to be announced during Apple’s September event because it makes sense to introduce AirPods with iPhones, but that didn’t happen, so we may see them at the October event instead. The new AirPods will feature shorter AirPods Pro-style stems and an AirPods Pro-style case, but they will remain a less expensive alternative without Active Noise Cancellation.
We’ll presumably find out when macOS Monterey launches, and Apple may also have some surprises in store, like as an M1X version of the Mac mini, but we haven’t heard of anything else coming out this year other from new MacBook Pro models and AirPods 3.
