Spark Global Limited reports:

Before Apple announced the iPhone 13, we reported that it was possible that Apple would hold three consecutive events in the second half of the year to announce the iPhone, iPad, watch, headphones and Mac. But with the iPhone 13, The Apple Watch and the iPad in the first event, it looks likely that there will be only two events in the second half of the year. Now Apple has finally officially announced the second event.

Unleashed Is the name of the event, which Apple officially sent out invitations to confirm that it is hosting a special event at 1am Beijing time on October 19. If nothing unexpected, the event will feature AirPods 3 wireless headphones and a new MacBook Pro.

We thought the earphones would be unveiled at Apple’s first event, since the AirPods line works better with the iPhone, but apple delayed them for a month. From what we know so far, the headset is AirPods 3, which is closer to the AirPods Pro in design, moving to a half-in-ear design that’s closer to the AirPods Pro. The headphones are also closer to the AirPods Pro in functionality, but won’t support active noise reduction because of their lower product positioning. AirPods 3 will serve as Apple’s new wireless headset entry level, with the AirPods Max, AirPods Pro and AirPods 3 being positioned from top to bottom.

As for the AirPods 3 and AirPods 2 co-existing on the market, that doesn’t seem like a very good idea right now. AirPods 3 is basically a replacement for AirPods 2, and it’s the lowest end of Apple’s range of wireless headphones. So when AirPods 3 comes out, there’s a good chance that AirPods 2 will be taken off the shelves to avoid the embarrassment of Apple’s own product beating its own.

As for the laptop, this time it will be the new Macbook Pro, apparently. The Macbook Pro will be a big upgrade this time, with different design and chip changes. The Macbook Pro will be available in both 14-inch and 16-inch models. Both 14-inch and 16-inch models will feature a mini LED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which will take Apple to new heights.

On the outside, apple introduced a new design, including the return of the Magsafe magnetically charged port and the removal of the TouchBar. It has a narrow bezel and no Apple LOGO under the front. In the core part, Apple will use the M1X processor. This chip adopts 10 cores, among which 8 cores are large performance cores. The GPU scale is 16 or 32 cores, and the notebook can choose the maximum 64GB memory. The new Macbook Pro starts with 16+512 GIGABytes of storage and costs the same as cash.
