New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models slated to offer minor upgrades over current-generation
Respected industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has shared that he expects Apple’s next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models to feature minor upgrades over the current M1 Pro and M1 Max machines in Apple’s lineup, besides upgraded chips.
In a post on Medium, Kuo says “The main upgrade of the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros is only the adoption of new processors,” with the new machines not expected to offer any substantial changes, as expected given that the MacBook Pro was fully redesigned last year, featuring an iPhone-style notch, MagSafe charging, a Liquid Retina XDR display, an HDMI port, and more.

Due to the lack of new features, Kuo has cut his shipment forecast for the next-generation 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, reporting that Apple has lowered its forecast for the new machines by 20% to 30%, ahead of mass production.
