The new chip will be more powerful than Apple's M1 processor, and the same generation CPU cores are expected to be retained for future models
Industry trackers have reported that Apple is gearing up to launch its high-end 'M1X chip' in the next few months to replace its current models that house Intel chips. The latest announcement aligns with the company's previous launch of Mini with an M1 processor. Furthermore, the reports suggest that Apple is also testing its in-display sensors for iPhone 13 models, and the new phones might not house the latest technology. iPad 9 is also expected to be in the company's pipeline, which might be launched earlier next month.
Mark Gurman, a reporter at Bloomberg, has stated that Apple will soon replace the Intel-powered Mac mini with the M1X chip, and the design is also expected to undergo few changes with extra ports. Previously, Gurman had reported that the new Mac mini might come with four ports compared to the older version's two ports. The codename for the same is said to be "J374". The new chip will be more powerful than Apple's M1 processor, and the same generation CPU cores are expected to be retained for future models. The In-display Touch ID feature is currently being tested on the iPhone 13, but it might just not feature in the models releasing this year.
