Later this year, Apple is expected to release two new MacBook models. The Pro MacBooks were expected to be unveiled at the 2021 WWDC. Even though this did not happen, recent reports claim that the more powerful MacBooks will be available in summer 2021. Apple has yet to make an official announcement about the new Pro MacBooks’ release. The M1X chip is expected to be used in these new Pro Apple laptops. DigiTimes has the most up-to-date information on the release schedule. According to the report, Apple could unveil the M1X-powered laptops in September 2021. Let’s take a closer look at the M1X MacBook Pro, which could be released later this year.
Apple’s 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro launch dates have been tipped
Apple may release the new M1X MacBook Pro soon. The Pro laptops will be available in September, according to DigiTimes. The new iPhones are usually the focus of Apple’s September event. Other hardware, such as the Apple Watch and iPads, has been announced by the company in the past.
According to DigiTimes, Apple plans to unveil the redesigned Pro MacBooks in the third quarter of 2021. (July to September). The Cupertino, California-based tech giant is known for holding iPhone launch events in the second or third week of September. If this is correct, the new MacBooks could be released at the same time. According to MacRumors, Apple has asked suppliers to increase mini-LED production for its mini-LED MacBook, citing a paywalled DigiTimes report.
It also claims that, despite Apple’s announcement of the Pro MacBooks in September, shipments will peak in October. As a result, Apple may begin shipping laptops in October or later. According to previous reports, the 14-inch model will go into mass production in Q4 2021. The 16-inch model, on the other hand, is expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2022.
According to a Bloomberg report, these two models will have a redesigned chassis and magnetic charging. They’ll also have multiple ports, such as an HDMI port and an SD card slot.
For the new Pro models, Apple will also release two different chips. The codenames for these are Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die. Eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores will be found on both chips. The GPU will be the deciding factor. There will be 16 or 32 GPU cores in each model. The M1 chip, on the other hand, had four performance cores and four efficiency cores. It has eight graphics cores as well. In addition, the new chip will support up to 64GB of RAM, compared to 16GB on the current M1 chip.
