According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple I would be working on a MacBook Pro that includes an SD card slot as well as an HDMI port. These are ports that the company eliminated from the hardware of its equipment more than 4 years ago and that it has supposedly decided to bring back.
Since then, the apple company has limited its users to using dongles. Those little adapters that allow you to connect Apple devices to MacBook Pro via USB-C. While this situation is irrelevant for some, for others it is tedious having to deal with the issue of locating an adapter to connect other devices to the computer.
MacBook Pro: nor more dongles
If Apple decides to incorporate these components into the new 2021 MacBook Pros, the use of dongles would be reduced. This is due to the fact that the equipment would include the necessary ports to perform different activities without having to resort to external connectors. Now connecting your SD card or in that case a monitor will be much easier.
“We predict that Apple’s two new MacBook Pro models in the second half of 2021 will have several major design and specification changes. Some practical changes for users are equipped with the SD card reader and HDMI port, ”Kuo said.
Among other features, Apple would bring back the MagSafe charging port. This is to charge the laptop in the most comfortable way possible and prevent it from being damaged in the event of a jerk.
Similarly, a renewed version of the M1 chip with a powerful 32-core CPU is expected for these computers. In addition to some changes at the design level, such as a MacBook Pro with a “flat-edged form factor similar to that of the iPhone 12”.
As the year progresses, there are more rumors that arise around the MacBook Pro. For now we can only wait until the middle of the year for the company to formally present us the new MacBook Pro 2021.
