Apple would possibly’ve leaked the M1X on YouTube, and nobody observed

Right here’s a captivating little thriller.

Going into WWDC 2021, it appeared fairly seemingly Apple would announce the rumored redesigned MacBook Professional, together with a extra highly effective replace to the M1 processor, maybe referred to as the M2. That didn’t occur, so many concluded the leakers simply acquired it fallacious this time.

However then @maxbalzer_ on Twitter observed one thing attention-grabbing in regards to the WWDC reside stream on YouTube: Apple tagged it with the key phrases ‘M1X’ and ‘M1X MacBook Professional.’

Hmmmm.

We’ve confirmed this ourselves (shoutout to the TubeBuddy extension which reveals the tags). As of the publication of this text, the tags are nonetheless up.

Now, there are just a few seemingly easy explanations. Maybe whoever arrange the livestream was merely seeking to maximize the stream’s views, and leveraging the leaks looks as if a simple approach to try this.

However that’s… form of bizarre. That is Apple we’re speaking about — they beautiful a lot by no means acknowledge leaks, and so they don’t have to fish for views.
