Apple sending two new MacBooks into production during the second half of 2021, claims report
Apple will reportedly send two new M-powered MacBooks into production in second half of 2021, which are believed to be the redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, according to Nikkei.
The report claims mass production of the two machines has been pushed back from the previous schedule of May or June, with the hardware likely running on Apple’s next-generation M-series chips, possibly the “M1X” or “M2.”
Previous rumors have claimed that the two new machines will feature mini-LED displays, an added HDMI port and SD card slot, MagSafe charging, no Touch Bar, and a new “flat-edged” look.
Apple has rescheduled plans to begin mass producing two new MacBook laptops in the second half of the year, from the previous schedule of May or June, Nikkei has learned. The two MacBooks will be powered by the Apple Silicon processor as part of a two-year transition away from longtime supplier Intel’s microprocessors.
Mass production during the second half of the year could point to the redesigned MacBook Pro models launching in the months leading up to the end of the year, matching with previous research notes from analysts.
