Redesigned MacBook Pro on schedule to launch later this year, says Kuo
Apple is on schedule to release its rumored new redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro later this year, according to a research note from respected industry analysts Ming-Chi Kuo on Friday.
Rumors have claimed this year’s MacBook Pro update will see the machine get a new “flat-edged” look with added I/O ports, a MagSafe charging port and new mini-LED displays, which will offer the same quality as OLED but with reduced power consumption.
According to Kuo, Apple will begin mass production of the new hardware during Q3 2021, which suggests the machines could be announced in October or November, likely as one of Apple’s last hardware announcement of the year.
In his research note, Kuo touches upon rumors of Apple releasing a redesigned MacBook Air in 2022, suggesting the new machine may also feature a mini-LED display.
The comments follow after leaker “Dylandkt” claimed earlier this week that Apple is working on a new M2 MacBook Air which could be announced early next year with colorful new finishes.
