Gurman: M1X MacBook Pros expected this month

The rumor: Apple is preparing to launch the new M1X MacBook Pro in October, according to Mark Gurman (87.3% accurate, via Power On).

  • “The Apple M1X chip, the likely name for a more graphics-intense and professional-focused M1 chip, is indeed still on tap for 2021. We’ll likely see it show up first in a new range of MacBook Pros in the next month and a higher-end Mac mini at some point” Gurman says
  • The 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will also bring back the HDMI port, MagSafe and SD card reader…all while eliminating the controversial Touch Bar

Our take: Everything is pointing to these M1X laptops launching imminently. And I think this time is for real…
