- Several recent reports have noted a mystery Apple silicon device registered by Apple in a Bluetooth database.
- Sadly, it turns out this is just a listing for Apple's M1 chip, not an exciting new product.
Serial Apple leaker Jon Prosser has confirmed speculation that a mystery Bluetooth database filing spotted this week from Apple is in fact just the Apple silicon M1 chip.
As reported by MacRumors:
As MacRumors speculated, Apple often files database listings for individual components as well as products, such as the H1 chip from Apple's AirPods, meaning this could well have been the M1 chip rather than an exciting new product.
Now, Jon Prosser at Front Page Tech has confirmed these suspicions. In his most recent video, Prosser states:
Prosser's delivery was way more dramatic than that, but the point still stands. Sadly, this filing isn't a surprise new Apple silicon device or an upcoming M1-powered iMac.
In tweets Friday Prosser confirmed that his sources indicate that Apple's AirTags and a new iPad Pro remain scheduled for an unveiling in March.

Aren't the odds that the next Apple Silicon Macs will have an M2 chip?
Of course, not to brag, but any AS chip is sooo much faster and stable than an Intel Mac that even the M1 is f***ing awesome.
