Ok ok ok
Everyone keep calm … but I just saw these tags on Apple’s YouTube livestream of the June 7 keynote!
APPLE CONFIRMED THE M1X !!!@jon_prosser You were right after all !!!

Apple was rumored to be announcing a new MacBook Pro M1X during this week’s WWDC and while it didn’t happen, it may have been planned at some point. That’s because the tags found on Apple’s WWDC main YouTube video mention it.
First spied on by Max Balzer, the tags reference all the things you’d expect them to do, including iOS 15, developers, and more. And then there’s a reference you might not have expected to see: M1x MacBook Pro.
It was rumored that Apple could have up to two new Apple silicone Macs ready to be announced during the WWDC keynote address, both with new Mini-LED displays: one 14-inch and one 16-inch. But it’s that M1X chip that is the most exciting with reports suggesting it will support up to 64GB of RAM and feature up to 32 GPU cores. Whenever it is released, this thing is going to be narrowly.
It does not seem very likely that we will see the new MacBook Pros M1X arrive before the end of this year at least, although you never know. Now it seems to be the case that Apple, at least at one point, planned to announce the machines this week. When the decision was made to exclude them from the lineup, no one knows.
Well, someone knows. But they are not saying it.
If you don’t need something as sturdy as a 16-inch power station, why not take a look at the best MacBook deals to see if you can get yourself something a little less expensive.
