MacBook Pro fans are still eagerly awaiting the introduction of new models with Apple’s own processors. Some observers were already expecting two new MacBook Pro models with 14- and 16-inch screens to be presented at WWDC at the beginning of June.
How Mac rumors Quoting a report by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, successors to current Intel models should start production soon. This, in turn, means good news for an official presentation.
MacBook Pro with Apple processor: mass production will start soon
If you think, the analyst will start mass production of the 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro in the third quarter of 2021. The first newly designed Apple laptops could roll off the assembly lines in the Far East in a few days or weeks.
The immediate start of production does not necessarily mean that the show will also take place in the third quarter. Earlier reports spoke of a presentation at a possible iPhone event in September.
According to Kuo, Apple could hold its own event for new Macs in October or November. This may allow the California-based company to introduce new products over several weeks. Furthermore, there may be a few days or weeks between presentation and delivery. The specific reason for this is the delivery bottlenecks for small LED screens.
Updates for the upcoming MacBook Pro
The biggest novelty, in addition to the presence of a 14-inch variant, is likely to be the use of Apple’s own processors. Specifically, the M1X chip is expected here, which is a new version of the already known M1. The latter is already used in iMac, MacBook Air, Mac mini, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and others.
The internal documents also revealed the supposed new design of the MacBook Pro. Among other things, the return of the HDMI port and SD card slot can be seen here. On the other hand, the Touch Bar was not visible, so the traditional function keys can also return.
