Macs are about to be upgraded. Apple is expected to unveil on Monday its next generation of computers, powered by its rumored M1X chips. The new Macs follow last year's M1-powered Macbook Pros, which were the first Apple lineup to be powered by a chip made by Intel. Apple is instead using chips similar to those that power the iPhone, which has received positive reviews so far.
Apple's new Mac computers already have a long battery life and are able to run iPhone and iPad applications. This new lot is expected to be powered by Apple's upgraded M1X chips, which are rumored to run faster and may go further to replace the "Pro" performance computers still powered on Intel chips.

All in all, Apple's event looks to be a good one. Because of the ongoing epidemic, it's the second major product unveiling Apple has held this year, and it is being held online.
While the Mac will be a major product at Apple's event, and likely what most people will focus on, the business may have other devices to show off. Those include new lower-priced AirPods, which are rumored to be similar in design to the Airpods Pro and allow users to change earplug tips. A smart headset, which Apple hasn't publicly discussed, is a long-shot possibility.

Apple's event starts at 10 a.m. Monday (PT). (That's 1 p.m. 6 p.m. ET, Tuesdays. 4 a.m. BST -- and 4 BSL. Tuesday AET, Sorry, Australia.)

What we can expect from this period is what we might expect.
Apple's digital events are fast-paced, but they're also chock-full of information. And expect very high production values. Apple built a multifloor faux house for the HomePod Mini announcement last year. And last month, it hired Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow to dramatize the camera capabilities of its iPhone 13 Pro.
