The M1X Mac mini will apparently be joining the M1X MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 for release later this year according to a recent post by an “Apple analyst”. While the 2021 MacBook Pro laptops and M1X Mac mini will offer more CPU cores and more GPU cores for users, it will be a longer wait for those who want Apple Silicon in an iMac Pro.

There have already been numerous leaks and suggestions in regard to the release date for the 2021 MacBook Pro machines sporting what is commonly known as the Apple M1X chip. A tipster known as just Dylan on Twitter (@dylandkt) has offered differing views of when we can expect to see the M1X MacBook Pro 14 and M1X MacBook Pro 16, and it seems they will be joined by the M1X Mac mini at a launch event to be held in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Fortunately, Dylan even narrows the timeframe to “late October or early November”, which differs from other recent predictions for the M1X chip reveal, 2021 MacBook Pro release date, and M1X Mac mini appearance. The same source has previously stated that this extension of the M1 Apple Silicon will also feature in a “higher end iMac”, which could be a revitalized iMac Pro. Other leakers have also stated their belief that the M1X will appear in a new iMac Pro, possibly sporting up to “32” cores (CPU/GPU unspecified but likely the latter).

But the wait for this potentially beastly iMac Pro with Apple Silicon will be longer, as the source reckons it’s not likely to appear with the aforementioned devices at a Q4 2021 Apple launch event. Unlike some tipsters, Dylan seems completely sure of their information, claiming “MacBook Pro 14 and 16 are definitely coming Q4” while adding the M1X Mac mini in a follow-up tweet. The “iOS developer” has been accurate with rumors in the past and has even predicted (back in January) that the upcoming MacBook Pro laptops may not have a logo on the bottom bezel.

Buy the M1 Apple Mac mini on Amazon
