M1X MacBook Pro Models will feature UHS-II SD card readers

Following the removal of the SD card reader from the 2016 MacBook Pro lineup, Apple has been rumored to be bringing the slot back in the upcoming redesigned models due out later this year. The SD card reader, which is rumored to support the UHS-II standard, is one of the most significant changes coming to the new M1X MacBook Pro models. Increased data transfer speeds are the only way to go.

The UHS-II SD Card Reader’s new data transfer speeds could be more than three times faster than standard SD card slots

Apple will add a UHS-II SD card reader to the M1X MacBook Pro line, according to Luke Miani, a popular YouTuber. Both the 14-inch and 16-inch versions may be able to support data transfer speeds of up to 312MB/s thanks to the new standard. These speeds are three times faster than standard SD card readers, and their 100MB/s limit may help content creators and creative professionals avoid frustration.

If M1X MacBook Pro owners don’t want to use an SD card reader, both redesigned machines are expected to come with USB 4 ports that support the Thunderbolt standard, which means faster data transfer speeds. While many potential customers will be pleased to learn that the upcoming portable Macs will include an upgraded SD card reader, you must have an SD card that supports the same standard.

If you don’t, your data transfer speeds will be slowed. Apple only introduced a UHS-II card reader once before, in the now-discontinued iMac Pro and the refreshed 27-inch iMac. Apart from the new SD card reader, the M1X MacBook Pro models are expected to come without a Touch Bar but with an HDMI port, a MagSafe charging port, and mini-LED displays.

According to a previously released report, mass production will begin in Q3 2021, with the M1X MacBook Pro family launching in the fourth quarter of that year.
