Apple launching redesigned MacBook Pro between September and November, Gurman claims
Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman has claimed Apple’s rumored new redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros will be released some time between September and November, claiming mini-LED display complications have pushed the launch back later than intended.
In this week’s Power On newsletter, Gurman reports “these new MacBooks were supposed to launch earlier,” but production has been held up and subsequently moved to later in the year.
Previous 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 mini-LED displays, which will offer the same quality as OLED but with reduced power consumption.
Gurman’s report aligns with an earlier investor note from respected industry analysts Ming-Chi Kuo, who claimed 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.
