A new Apple event is coming.
The next event of Apple will take place on October 18, according to the invitations sent recently. The company is expected to use its second fall event to launch a couple of new ones MacBook, a Mac Mini high-end redesigned and maybe a few AirPods third generation.
The invitation video in a tweet from Apple’s marketing executive Greg Joswiak, appears with a font that could hint at the upcoming mini LED technology. The “special” event will be broadcast live on Apple.com at 7pm Italian time.
There have been reports for months that Apple is on the verge of launching new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. The new MacBooks would be the latest step in Apple’s transition from Intel chips to an Arm-based processor called the Apple-designed M1X. The new chip could boost performance over the M1 chip that debuted last year, as Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reports that the M1X has ten CPU cores compared to the M1’s eight.
Other expected features include the return of MagSafe charging, an HDMI port, and an SD card slot.

Rumors suggest that the same M1X processor will be featured in a redesigned high-end Mac Mini. The new machine will reportedly have more ports than last year’s M1 model, with two Thunderbolt / USB 4 Type-C ports and two USB Type-A ports. The changes should make the new Mac Mini much more suitable for advanced users.
Finally, Apple may announce a redesigned pair of AirPods, which represent the third generation of the company’s original true wireless earbuds. The AirPods should adopt a similar design to the AirPods Pro.
