Apple Unleashed event bug Apple’s next event is right around the corner, and it’s one you won’t want to miss if you’re a fan of the Mac. The “Unleashed” keynote is expected to bring a number of new Apple machines — all powered by an even faster “M1X” chip.

Just like recent Apple keynotes, this one will be streamed online, so you’ll be able to watch it in its entirety as it all unfolds. We’ll show you how.

‘Big things’ coming at Unleashed event

Apple this week teased “big things are coming” at its Unleashed event. And according to recent rumors, it won’t disappoint. The keynote is expected to be filled with big Mac news, and could also bring some other surprises.

We’re expected a much-anticipated refresh for both the 13- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, which are tipped to get faster Apple Silicon chips. We could also see a Mac mini upgrade that brings the same chipset.

Apple’s “big things” teaser could point to an Apple Silicon refresh for the larger iMac. A 24-inch model is already available with an M1 chip, but the 27-inch alternative, last refreshed in 2017, is still powered by Intel processors.

On top of all that, we expect Apple to provide us with a public release date for macOS Monterey — and it could finally deliver a long-awaited AirPods 3 upgrade with a revamped design and improved features.
