At a virtual event on Monday at 1 pm ET, the company is expected to show off two high-end MacBook Pro laptops powered by its next-generation silicon chip, the M1X. The line is rumored to come in two sizes and feature thinner bezels, improved displays, longer-lasting batteries and more memory options. Apple may also do away with the touch bar — a divisive feature that replaced the row of function keys at the top of the keyboard with text prediction and shortcuts.
The company may also introduce an update to its entry-level AirPods that’s more in line with the features of the AirPods Pro line.
Apple isn’t the only Big Tech company unveiling new gadgets this week. Google will unveil its Pixel 6 smartphone on Tuesday and Samsung is hosting a mysterious press event the following day that even the rumor mill didn’t see coming.
