### Apple Unleashed: Predictions

It's a pretty safe bet that on October 18th, 2021 Apple will announce the imminent release of macOS Monterey on both Apple and Intel silicon. We should also see two new (14-inch and 16-inch) MacBook Pro models, both with a new Apple M1X or M2 SoC, a few additional ports (HDMI, SD, and micro SD), and last, but certainly not least, the triumphant return of Apple's fantastic MagSafe charging technology. I don't know about you but I can't wait to say goodbye to charging my system via worn out USB-C ports.

### Apple Unleashed: One More Thing

Finally, my current favorite pick for a "One More Thing" moment is a new, A15-based iPod Touch with an upgraded AMP/DAC, a USB-C connector instead of Lightning, standard upgrades to the front and rear cameras, and a buttonless 5.25-inch LED display very similar to the one found on the new iPad Mini 6. The odds of this last one happening are close to zero, but stranger things have happened in the past. Besides, I'm allowed to dream like everyone else, right? :-)

Join me Monday evening for a quick post-event update going over what's announced and what I (hopefully) got right this time around. See you then, folks!
