A Bloomberg report also details that Apple is working on a major upgrade for the MacBook Pro lineup, though it differs in some aspects from Kuo’s claims.
Apple is rumored to be working on 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro refresh with its M1x chip. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has now provided some more details about the upcoming MacBook Pro refresh from the company which includes some major changes and the removal of the Touch Bar.
Apple’s M1-based Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro have set new standards in terms of performance and efficiency. They are leaps and bounds better than their Intel iterations, though being first-gen products, they come with their own set of issues. Early M1 Mac adopts have been complaining about Bluetooth issues, compatibility problems with some of their go-to apps, unusual battery drain, and more.
After 15 years of using Intel CPUs in its Mac lineup, Apple finally transitioned to its in-house Apple Silicon chip. The first iteration — dubbed the M1 — has exceeded all expectations with mind-blowing performance and power-efficiency. The M1 MacBook Air, in particular, is significantly faster than its predecessor by an astounding 3.5 times and allows for intensive tasks — such as video editing — usually reserved for MacBook Pros and iMacs. The M1 MacBook Pro is also miles better than before. If you just got a new M1 MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro, then here are 20+ tips and tricks that you should know about.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in his latest investor report claims that Apple will be launching not one but two redesigned MacBook Pro models with Apple Silicon chip and mini-LED display next year. In his previous note, the analyst had stated that Apple was going to release a MacBook Pro with mini-LED in the second half of 2021 that led many to believe that it was going to be a refresh of the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
