How to watch Apple’s ‘Unleashed’ launch event

You can watch Apple’s “Unleashed” launch event online on October 18. The event starts at 1 p.m. ET and will be available to stream on Apple.com, the Apple TV app, and YouTube.

All major browsers, like Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, can stream the launch event through Apple.com. You can also watch the launch live through the dedicated Apple TV app.

The “Unleashed” event will be available to watch on YouTube as well, but Insider has noticed a slight delay when watching YouTube streams during previous Apple events. We recommend streaming the event directly from Apple to avoid any delay.

What to expect from Apple’s upcoming event

There are multiple Apple products rumored to make an appearance during the company’s event on October 18, but a new MacBook Pro is expected to be the highlight.

Reporting from Bloomberg suggests that the updated MacBook Pro will be fitted with an upgraded version of Apple’s M1 processor instead of an Intel chip. The new laptop is expected to launch with 14-inch and 16-inch display options, along with a MagSafe charger and an HDMI port. The Touch Bar located at the top of the keyboard on current MacBook Pro models may be removed in this redesign.

The current Mac Mini desktop computer already has an M1 processor, but a more powerful version of the product is also rumored to be announced on Monday.

Apple could finally launch the third iteration of its AirPods as well. The long-rumored AirPods 3 are expected to have shorter stems and come with an updated charging case.
