M1X MacBook Pro referenced in metadata for Apple’s WWDC YouTube video

There were many rumors about a new MacBook Pro coming at WWDC, but it (sadly) didn’t happen. However, metadata on the WWDC keynote video indicates that it might actually have been planned to arrive this week after all.

In the keyword tags for Apple’s official WWDC YouTube video, the terms ‘m1x’ and ‘ M1X MacBook Pro’ can be found. This was first spotted by Max Balzer on Twitter.

The upcoming 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro are believed to feature next-generation Apple Silicon with 8-high performance cores and two power-efficiency cores, as well as the return of ports including HDMI and an SD card reader, in a new boxier industrial design.

These tags are defined by the uploader of the YouTube video, so someone at Apple at least thought the M1X MacBook Pro was announced on Monday.

There has been some speculation that the global chip shortage has meant Apple has had to delay the release of the new MacBook Pro models. Supply chain reports expect the laptops to appear sometime in the second half of 2021.
