Redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro to get 1080p webcam, says leaker
Apple will finally give its MacBook Pro “FaceTime HD” cameras some much needed love this year, according to leaker “@Dylandkt” on Twitter who claims the rumored new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro will get a 1080p FaceTime webcam.
Apple’s latest MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, released in November last year, both feature 720p FaceTime cameras, with many seeing last year’s M1 upgrade as a missed opportunity to improve the quality of the machine’s camera, which instead of an upgrade features software improvements to mimic a camera upgrade.
In a Tweet over the weekend, the leaker claimed the 1080p webcam will be coming to the entire Mac lineup.
I know a lot people are referencing Linus’s video (which is a great video by the way) but it’s good to note that the upcoming MacBook Pro will actually be getting an updated improved 1080p webcam for the next model and so will the entire Mac lineup.

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 analyst Ming-Chi Kuo on Friday, 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 announcements of the year.
