Not much time has passed since the last Apple event, and another one is already right around the corner. Apple has recently confirmed that its next hardware event will take place next week, on October 18th, at 1:00PM ET / 10:00AM PT.

Called “Unleashed,” the upcoming event was teased on Twitter by Apple marketing executive Greg Joswiak. Let’s take a look at the most likely announcements Apple will make:

  • New 14- & 16-Inch MacBook Pro Models: According to available information, the stars of the show will be two new MacBook Pro models with an Arm-based processor called the M1X. The new processor is expected to have ten CPU cores and 16 or 32 GPU cores, giving it a substantial performance boost over the already admirably powerful M1 chip that debuted last year. The new MacBooks will likely use mini-LED display technology and offer more connectivity options.
  • High-End Mac Mini: The new M1X processor may appear in one additional product: a high-end Mac mini aimed at power users who edit high-definition video, produce music, develop software, and do other demanding tasks on their computers. Additional ports compared to the current M1-powered Mac mini are to be expected, and Apple might even use the same magnetic power plug that doubles as Ethernet cable the new M1 iMac users.
  • Third-Generation AirPods: Everyone was expecting Apple to announce the third-generation AirPods during the last event, but that didn’t happen. As such, it’s almost certain that we’ll finally get to see them next week. Their design is anticipated to be similar to the AirPods Pro, but they probably won’t support active noise cancellation nor feature replaceable ear tips.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
