Apple’s October Event: How to Watch the Expected Debut of Live Mac Upgrades



Apple’s Macs are about to get an upgrade. On October 18, Apple is expected to announce its next generation of computers, powered by its so-called Apple M1X silicon chips. The new devices follow last year’s M1-powered Macs, which were the first in Apple’s lineup not to powered by a chip made by Intel. Instead, Apple uses chips similar to the chips that power the iPhone, and so far they have received positive reviews as well.

Apple’s new Mac computers already have popular battery life and are capable of running iPhone and iPad apps. This new batch is expected to use Apple’s improved M1X chips, which are supposed to be faster and can go further to replace “Pro” performance computers still currently powered by Intel chips.

While the Mac will be a key product at Apple’s event, and probably what most people are focusing their attention on, the company may have other devices to show off.
