Apple could announce new MacBook Pro at WWDC, suggests Prosser
Leaker Jon Prosser has claimed Apple is preparing to launch new MacBook Pro models at WWDC in just under two weeks time.
In a tweet on Monday about WWDC, Prosser said he can “confirm” a new MacBook Pro is “coming”, failing to elaborate on the rumored machine, though reports suggest it may feature a new “M1X” chip and a full redesign, featuring MagSafe and added I/O ports.
Prosser’s tweet follows after Bloomberg reported earlier this month that Apple’s new redesigned MacBook Pro could launch as soon as summer in 14-inch (code name J314) and 16-inch screen (J316) sizes.
For the new MacBook Pro, Bloomberg claim Apple is working on two different M-series chips, codenamed Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die. The new silicon will supposedly have eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores but will be offered in either 16 or 32 graphics core variations.
Apple hasn’t recently announced new hardware at WWDC, but it has done so in the past. Prosser is so far the only leaker to suggest Apple’s rumored new MacBook Pro will launch at the conference, although all sources seem to agree the launch is happening before the year’s end.
