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.

UAE Comes Out Strongly In Guinness World Records 2023
Guinness, the renowned cataloger of record-breaking events, has released its latest annual, after sifting through 40,000 applications — and the Arab world is heavily featured.
Guinness World Records, the authority on record-breaking global achievements, has just announced its latest release, “Guinness World Records 2023 (GWR2023),” which will be available online and in physical stores across the Arab region from today.
As usual, GWR 2023 features all of the latest achievements from around the world (and space!), with special features and updated graphics to bring the stories to life.
So why the interest in the latest Guinness installment? Well, it turns out the Arab Region is strongly represented in the book, with more than 50 records featured in the new edition, which is no mean feat considering the volume of competition.
“We’ve sifted through nearly 40,000 record applications over the past year to bring you Guinness World Records 2023. People from all walks of life continue to be fascinated by extremes, and we’ve received claims from across the planet – indeed, even from space! This is why I’ve said the new edition is out of this world,” says Craig Glenday, Guinness Editor in Chief.
Of interest to readers of this platform, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates both get to flex their record-breaking muscles.
Saudi Arabia claims the title of “Largest LED Structure and Suspended Ornament” courtesy of the Noor Riyadh Festival, as well as other weird and wonderful titles, including the “Largest Lego Formula 1 Car”, as well as perhaps more prestigious honors, such as “Largest Mirrored Building”, “Largest Clock Face”, “Tallest Lighthouse” and the “Largest Geodesic Dome”.
Not to be outdone, the UAE has claimed several humanitarian record-breaking titles, including the “Longest Video Livestream” (by The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives and pan Arab influencer Hassan Suleiman), the “Largest Donation for Medical Treatment”, and the “Most Awareness Ribbons Made in One Hour”.
On the tech front, the UAE also claims several prestigious firsts, including “First 3D-Printed Laboratory”, while the world-renowned Burj Khalifa hangs on to its title of “World’s Tallest Building”.
