With the Apple Silicon rollout continuing, the MacBook Pro could see some big changes soon. The company will likely leverage the new Apple silicon-based models to introduce new designs, features, and refinements. This article contains the most laudable reviews of the upcoming MacBook Pro. Check out this page for the latest and greatest.
2021 MacBook Pro: The Latest Rumors
Macrumors reports that Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives, who previously predicted the new iMac at Apple’s Spring Loaded event, reports that the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros will arrive at WWDC on June 7th.
Jon Prosser is extremely confident the new MacBook Pro is presented at WWDC, write on twitter that he can “confirm that macbook pro is coming” at the developer conference in June.
A couple of Twitter rumors have apparently leaked small but important details about the Next MacBook Pro. iOS developer Dylandkt– who previously predicted the M1 in the iMac – claims so The MacBook’s chip is branded as the M1X and bring “more Thunderbolt channels, more CPU cores, more GPU cores and higher power consumption”. As 9to5Mac noted, the same account also tweeted in January that the “upcoming MacBook Pro models” must not contain a logo on the lower bezel. ”It’s unclear whether this is due to the space or the cleanliness, as with the new iMac.
2021 MacBook Pro: sizes, design and colors
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that Apple will be releasing a “redesigned” MacBook Pro this summer. It will be available in 14- and 16-inch models; Gurman did not specify whether the electricity 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro however, it will experience any design changes iOS developer Dylandkt tweeted in January that the “upcoming MacBook Pro models may not have a logo on the lower bezel”.
Analyst Ming Chi-Kuo said in a research note (via MacRumors) that the laptop will get a redesign in 2021. In an earlier note dated May 2020 (via MacRumors), Kuo said Apple is working on a 14-inch MacBook Pro – essentially a transformation of the higher-end 13-inch models, similar to what happened when Apple released the 16-inch MacBook Pro to the 15-inch To replace models. It is unclear whether the 13-inch MacBook Pro in the lower price range would stay in the lineup if a 14-inch version is revealed.
Jon Prosser from Front Page Tech Reports that Apple will be releasing a MacBook Air or a re-launch of the MacBook in color offerings and a white bezel similar to the new one 24-inch iMac. If Apple uses color in its consumer products, it is possible that Apple will stick with the Space Gray and Silver options for the high-end, which includes the MacBook Pro. And after a tweet from previously accurate Dylandkt, MacBook Pro branding may be removed.
2021 MacBook Pro: Mini LED displays
In March 2020, analyst Ming Chi-Kuo published a Note Coverage of Apple’s use of mini LEDs in new products, including the 2021 versions of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. Apple already launched its first mini LED screen in the year 12.9-inch iPad Pro, so it is clear that Apple is already working on the technology.
Mini-LED is a backlight technology for displays, but it uses more LEDs than is currently implemented. This results in better control of the backlight, better image contrast, and greater dynamic range. If Apple’s description of the iPad Pro is any indication, the new display will deliver “lifelike details with a contrast ratio of 1,000,000: 1 … (and) a breathtaking 1000 nits of full screen brightness and 1600 nits of peak brightness”.
2021 MacBook Pro: MagSafe and ports
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that the MacBook Pro due out this summer will have a MagSafe charger, an SD card slot, an HDMI port and “more Thunderbolt ports” (the current 13-inch MacBook Pro has two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports; the current Intel-based 16-inch MacBook Pro has four Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C ports.)
Analyst Ming Chi-Kuo (via MacRumors) said in a research note that MagSafe will be on the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro. Introduced in Mac laptops in 2006, MagSafe was a magnetic power adapter connector that could easily be disconnected from the laptop using non-axial force – pulling from angles other than instant. Its implementation meant that if the laptop was plugged in, for whatever reason, the cable was tripped or pulled, the connection would be broken and the laptop would be spared fly off the work surface. However, MagSafe was a separate, dedicated plug for power supply and disappeared when Apple switched to USB-C ports in 2016. The USB-C ports support battery charging, but do not have a breakaway connector.
Apple is on Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports in its. switched M1 Macs, and Apple will continue to do so in upcoming models.
2021 MacBook Pro: End of the Touch Bar
The Touch Bar is a polarizing feature of the higher-end MacBook Pro models – those who don’t like it are very expressive, while people who like it don’t say much (at least it seems so). In January 2021 Notesaid analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that the OLED touch bar will be replaced by function keys. Apple introduced the Touch Bar in 2016 Replacing the function keys with “a brilliant multi-touch display in retina quality” was a key feature.
2021 MacBook Pro: M-Series Processor and Other Specifications
A Twitter rumor apparently leaked small but important details about the next MacBook Pro. iOS developer Dylandkt– who previously predicted the M1 in the iMac – claims that the MacBook’s chip will be branded as the M1X and will bring “more Thunderbolt channels, more CPU cores, more GPU cores, and higher power consumption.”
Speculation about Apple silicon in the higher-end MacBook Pro models has suggested that Apple will take this opportunity to unveil the next in the M-series. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported that Apple’s “redesigned” 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro will have the Apple system on one chip that has a 10-core CPU (eight performance cores and two efficiency cores), 16 or 32 graphics core options and a maximum of 64 GB of RAM and an “improved neural engine”.
Mark Gurman from Bloomberg reports that it is possible that the 13-inch MacBook Pro will have a new System on a Chip in late 2021, replacing the M1. The new SoC will be faster, but like the M1 it will have eight CPU cores (four performance cores, four efficiency cores). The graphics cores are increased from eight to ten.
Apple has been rumored to be incorporating 5G and Face ID support into its laptops, but Bloomberg Bloom’s Mark Gurman reported that these functions will not appear “in brief”.
2021 MacBook Pro: price and release
according to According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple will launch the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro with Apple silicon this summer. More recently, Jon Prosser and Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives both predicted a WWDC launch for the new notebooks. Prices haven’t leaked, but based on previous Apple silicon launches, the 16-inch model will likely still start at $ 2,399, with the 14-inch MacBook Pro possibly taking the place of the 13-inch MacBook Pro for $ 1,799. It is not clear whether the current 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro will remain in the range.
