- Among the announcements that we can expect are the new “MacBook Pro” models
- Rumors suggest that the 3rd generation AirPods are finally arriving
In the invitation that was sent to TechMarkup, Apple states, in addition to the name “New Dimensions”, that the event will take place online and will be accessible to the public via the Apple.com website. The broadcast starts at 7 p.m. UK time and according to the latest rumors, we can expect the new MacBooks, a new high-end version of the Mac Mini and possibly the third generation of AirPods.

- iPhone 13 Pro in the test: because of the unlucky number!
Greg Joswiak, Apple’s SVP of Marketing, posted a teaser for the October 18th event that featured the word “Unleash”. Translated into German it means something like “to unleash”. Is it perhaps about computing power that should be unleashed? So maybe we can hope for the announcement of the new M1X chip?

The expectations are of course high that the M1X processor will be built into the new MacBook Pro. The rumors surrounding the model also include information about the mini-LED technology that will be used in 14- and 16-inch displays. The new laptop should do without the touch bar and bring at least one HDMI connection with it. Keep your fingers crossed for us! We may also see an SD card reader and MagSafe connector.
The trade press also relies on the announcement of powerful new versions of the Mac mini with the M1X SoC. Here at TechMarkup, we’re betting that we’ll get to see the third generation of AirPods that we couldn’t get.
As always, we will report on this special Apple October 2021 event and provide the TechMarkup community with all the information. So stay tuned here! Which devices would you like to see on October 18th? Let us know in the comments.
