M1X MacBook Pro: Rumors about its renewal have been circulating on the internet for a while now. According to various leaks and predictions, the updated MacBook Pro is likely to have a more powerful M1X chip and a new design with differences from the old one. The point where the leaks can’t agree is the release date of this refurbished product.
Ahead of Apple’s WWDC event earlier this month, several leaks suggested that Apple might announce the new MacBook Pro during its keynote broadcast. It didn’t, but interestingly, Apple added some tags it thought would be useful for SEO, such as: “M1X” and “MacBook Pro”, to the keynote video posted on YouTube. Now leak sources point to the last quarter of 2021 for the release of the renewed MacBook Pro.
Macbook Pro 14 and 16 will definitely arrive in the fourth quarter of 2021. Either late October or early November.

A Twitter user nicknamed Dylandkt suggested that Apple is using the rumored 14-inch and 16-inch . will release M1X MacBook Pro models in the last quarter of 2021. New models may be coming, likely in late October or early November. In addition to the MacBook Pro, Dylandkt noted that Apple will also launch a Mac mini with the upgrade M1X chipping.
9to5Mac notes that Dylandkt has a mixed history of leaks, but accurately foreshadows details of the new M1 iMac and 2021 iPad Pro. But Dylandkt isn’t the only source of leaks announcing an exit in late 2021. A recent DigiTimes report also pointed to the specified time frame for the new MacBook Pro. It would make sense for the revamped PC to launch in early November, as Apple first announced the M1 chip and with it the MacBook Air, Pro, and Mac mini devices on November 10 last year. So about a year will have passed.
Meanwhile, other news points to an earlier release for Apple’s MacBook Pro with the M1X processor. For example, trusted Bloomberg correspondent Mark Gurman previously said the new MacBook Pro could be released in the summer.
Major innovations expected with the M1X MacBook Pro
In addition to characterizing the M1X chip, the new MacBook Pro is expected to come in two sizes (14 and 16 inches) and feature a redesigned chassis with flattened edges. It is also one of the expectations to host a larger screen with narrower bezels. On the other hand, it is said that it will have more ports, including an SD card reader and HDMI port, and that it will bring back the MagSafe charger.
