Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in his latest investor note claims that Apple will launch Apple Silicon-powered 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with a redesigned chassis in 2021.
Rumors about a 14-inch MacBook Pro have been circulating ever since Apple launched the 16-inch MacBook Pro. Many consumers and experts had expected Apple to introduce a 14-inch MacBook Pro in early 2020, but the company ended up releasing a refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro. Now, it is being reported that we might get to see a 14-inch MacBook Pro and a 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a brand new display next year.
Apple has started selling refurbished units of the 2020 MacBook Air on its refurbished store. The MacBook Air was refreshed by Apple in March this year with the new Magic Keyboard, faster Intel processors, and more storage.
Apple has now started accepting Mac trade-ins at its retail stores across the United States and Canada as reported earlier this month. Up until now, the company had only been allowing customers to trade-in their Macs via its online store.
Apple started offering a more powerful Radeon Pro 5600M GPU for the 16-inch MacBook Pro as a Build to Order (BTO) option from earlier this week. This is an expensive upgrade as it costs $700 more over the regular 5500M GPU that ships inside the default high-end config of the machine. So, is the 5600M GPU worth the money?
Apple today updated its 16-inch MacBook Pro lineup with a more powerful Radeon Pro 5600M GPU. It is now also offering an SSD upgrade kit for the 2019 Mac Pro.
Apple’s MacBook lineup is known for its battery life. They tend to offer excellent battery life, with all models promising 10 hours of usage as per Apple. However, there are a lot of terms and conditions attached here, and if you are looking to extend the battery life of your MacBook Pro or MacBook Air, follow this guide.
Apple is going to retire its first-ever MacBook Pro with Retina display in 30 days. Once that happens, the MacBook Pro will be labeled ‘Obsolete’ and will not be serviced in any capacity by Apple. Service centers will no longer be able to order parts for obsolete products and provide any sort of hardware service.
Apple had refreshed its 13-inch MacBook Pro early last month. The two low-end refreshed 13-inch variants shipped with an 8th-gen quad-core Intel processor and slower and older 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM. Up until yesterday, Apple was charging customers $100 for doubling the RAM to 16GB on these machines, but it has now quietly bumped the price to $200.
At this point, its no secret that Apple is working on an ArmMacBook which rumors point will launch in 2021. However, as per leaker @choco_bit, we might see the first Arm-based MacBook from Apple sooner than expected.
