Apple’s ad year is far from over with the launch of the iPhone 13. The apple company promises to go for more at a new event called Unleashed! (Unleashed !, in Spanish), for Monday, October 18.
Without official details so far, it is expected that iPhone phones and iPads will give the place of privilege within the technological ecosystem to the New Mac Desktop and Laptop Families.
The Cupertino giant took the first step in its transition to a new ARM platform, called Apple Silicon, with the M1 processor in October 2020. This self-designed processor broke Intel’s hegemony to power the 13-inch Mac mini, iMac, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro.

A year later without having more news of this transition, rumors suggest that Apple will take advantage of the virtual event to show its new generation of high-end MacBook Pros and 16-inch screen with an M1X chip.
The novelty in this segment would be focused on the debut of the first Apple Silicon chip aimed at the most demanding professionals and users, with up to 10 cores in the CPU and 32 cores in the GPU.
