Apple’s event to reveal the new 14″ and 16″ MacBook Pro with the M1X chip will occur on Monday, October 18th at 10:00am PDT.
Based on past release patterns, it’s expected the new MacBooks will probably go on sale online directly after the event.
Should You Pre-order The New Macbook Pro?
The new MacBooks will be in high demand. If you don’t want to wait, you should order one as soon as you can.
- Confirm you can sign into the Apple ID you use for the Apple Store. Don’t assume you know your password.
- Make sure your saved method of payment is current and correct.
- Make sure your shipping information is correct.
- Call your Credit Card company and ensure they know you will be making a large purchase to avoid a surprise rejection.
The new MacBooks will ship with macOS Monterey. This means that macOS Monterey will probably be available for general download shortly afterward.
Don’t rush to press the upgrade button. Educate yourself or talk to an expert, before deciding that macOS Monterey is right for your Mac. Make sure you know how to safely proceed with the install. It’s a move that can be very difficult to reverse.
Can My Mac Run macOS Monterey?
The new macOS can be downloaded and installed on any Mac with an M1 or M1x chip. Other compatible models include, 2015 and later MacBook, Early 2015 and later MacBook Air, Early 2015 and later MacBook Pro, Late 2014 and later Mac mini, Late 2015 and later iMac, 2017 and later iMac Pro, Late 2013 and later Mac Pro.
