The last week of February ends, a week that has brought a lot of expectation thanks to the rumors about the new products that are expected from the bitten apple, this time we tell you everything we know about it rumored MacBook Pro updates 14 ″ and 16 ″ inches.
We recall that Apple impressed the industry with its MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini built for the new M1 chips last fall, while these devices mark the beginning of the processor transition, this year we look forward to an even more exciting round professional hardware with new updates.
Going back to 2016, Apple redesigned the MacBook Pro and took its minimalist belief to new levels, literally replacing all I / O with USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 ports, and while several models included 1, 2, and 4 USB-C ports to load, transfer data and adapt new ports required third-party adapters to add SD, HDMI and USB-A card readers.
Almost five years have passed and Apple is expected to give a bit of its minimalist proposal and to users, especially professionals, what they have been asking for since the MacBook Pro 2016, more ports. The redesigned MacBook Pro is expected to retain the USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 ports, but bring back MagSafe charging, HDMI, and the built-in SD card reader.
If this rumor is true, the Thunderbolt 3 ports would be released for fast data transfer and finally would eliminate the need for adapters that many MacBook Pro users currently have, in addition, these renovations are also expected to feature a full keyboard and no Touch Bar as seen on the MacBook Air.
The bitten apple brand slightly modified the screen and body of the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro and gave rise to a 16-inch version in the latest revision. Considering this, rumors have been swirling about an upgrade to the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro that could slim down the bezels around the screen resulting in a 14 ″ inch MacBook Pro.
Everything we know so far about the technology for the 14 “and 16” MacBook Pros with Apple Silicon
Rumor has it that in addition to a screen increase, Apple is planning changes to the type of screen currently used by Macbooks, its models currently using high-resolution LED-backlit LCD screens with IPS technology , or in-plane switching, chain reports. supply indicates that the displays that will have the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros will be the first to switch to a new mini-LED technology.
Mini-LED is the new technology that features even smaller LED backlight components. This technology allows you to illuminate bright pixels and dim dark areas can be much more precise , all this while allowing higher contrast ratios, deeper blacks and less halo effects, wonderful.
Multiple sources expect 14 ″ and 16-inch MacBook Pro upgrades to feature aesthetics similar to current iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPhone 12 design , bulbous tops and bottoms are expected to flatten out to create uniform depth Let’s remember that Apple avoided including a design change in the first round of Apple Silicon computers, only its fan was removed.
The next round of updates brings a lot to look forward to, a noticeable increase in screen size on its smallest model, more ports in both sizes , a new type of screen for a higher contrast ratio, and of course an updated design for the first time since. 2016, with these changes, a revolution is expected for the Mac.
Finally, based on the performance and battery life of current M1-chip Macs, any further advancement in performance from the successor chip is sure to impress. It has been mentioned that in the future we could have Face ID and cell phone incorporated in the MacBook , however, both characteristics do not seem to be for 2021 yet.
Finally, being the biggest devices of the bitten apple brand, rumors point to the second half of 2021 to be announced and of course to mention the availability of these products.
