Like every fall, Apple is preparing to launch new products in several waves. Now the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) tells us that there are new and mysterious Macs and Apple Watches on the way. These are two clear signs that yet to be revealed product marketing is approaching.
Two Macs which have just been registered with the EEC
The Eurasian Database often publishes model numbers for new products weeks in advance. On this occasion, these are two Mac models which from the French site Consomac indicate that it could be the new MacBook Pro M1X. These are models A2442 and A2485, which appear at the end of the following list:
The two models appear with others already known, these two models being unpublished. The document is an update to incorporate the new version of macOS 12 Monterey into registered computers. Currently, there are two MacBook Pro models that have an Intel processor.
These are the 13-inch 4-port MacBook Pros, as well as the 16-inch model. Rumor has it that it will finally be two 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, with a new design and a version of MagSafe as a charger. Among other improvements, it should have a mini-LED screen, say goodbye to the Touch Bar and again integrate an HDMI port and an SD card reader.
One of the most anticipated aspects is the processor that both teams will carry. Being the top-of-the-line MacBook Pro, all hopes are for at least an M1X that would add more CPU and GPU power. But it is also possible that it is a brand new M2.
Six new Apple Watch Series 7 are coming
New Apple Watch models have also been registered in this database. This is a total of six different models, in particular the A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477 and A2478. They are visible in the following EEC table:
Again, this is an update to the models that will be compatible with watchOS 8, which will be released in September. The new Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to sport a device redesign several years after the Apple Watch Series 4 launched three years ago. In the wake of the rest of the products, flat edges such as the iPad, iMac 2021 and iPhone 12 are planned.
The process that brings Apple devices through the EEC is mandatory. Although we shouldn’t be overly relying on the timeline in which they occur. So, Apple registered the supposed iPhone 13 in this database last June. Two months later, these Macs and Apple Watch arrive, although the terminal and the watch will surely arrive at the same time. Not to mention that the iMac M1 we saw this year was “announced” by the EEC in June 2020.
That said, the watches and the iPhone 13 will most likely launch in September. While newer Macs do this in October or November.
