A new report suggests that the 16-inch MacBook Pro might get delayed and become available at some point in 2022, but not this year. Apple is expected to debut two new MacBook Pro models.
According to DigiTimes, the 14-inch MacBook Pro will enter “volume production” in Q4 2021, while the larger 16-inch MacBook Pro is expected later this year or Q1 2022.
“Apple plans to release two MiniLED-backlit MacBook Pro products – a 14-inch and a 16-inch – in the second half of 2021.”
“Judging from the supply of MiniLED backlighting applications, volume production of the 14-inch MacBook Pro is likely to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021, and the 16-inch model will start in the first quarter of 2022, said the sources.”
DigiTimes also reported that despite of the mass production that had already begun two months ago, Apple will announce the new laptops this summer, likely at its 32nd Worldwide Developers Conference.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are expected to feature a new design, a faster M1X chip, Mini-LED displays, and returning ports such as HDMI, SD slot, and MagSafe.
