Apple references unreleased M1X MacBook Pro in WWDC Keynote tags

The news: Apple included two tags hidden in the metadata of their WWDC 2021 keynote that point to a new MacBook Pro, as spotted first by YouTuber Max Balzer.

Our take: I’ve seen a lot of takes that ‘this was just for SEO’ or ‘wow, Apple is so genius for optimizing the video based on rumors’ but I disagree completely. Every rumor pointed to a new MacBook Pro coming at this event, and it seems like Apple decided to push it back last minute.
