According to reports, Apple could launch new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops in 2021, all of which feature its new in-house M1 chip. Cupertino may also consider introducing a 24-inch iMac and a smaller Mac Pro workstation in the coming year, according to a report. Apple introduced the M1 SoC at the “One More Thing” event on November 10th and introduced updated versions of the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13-inch and Mac mini, which are equipped with its new silicon.
According to a report from IT Home, Apple could launch two MacBook Pro laptops equipped with its new M1 chip. The new lineup is expected to include a new 14-inch MacBook Pro and an updated 16-inch MacBook Pro. The 16-inch MacBook Pro with Intel processors is currently listed in the Apple Store. The 13-inch MacBook Pro, on the other hand, is equipped with both M1 chip and Intel processor options. The new MacBook Pro with M1 drive was announced along with MacBook Air and Mac mini based on Apple silicon. The report also suggests that the alleged 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro could come with a mini-LED display. The two laptops are expected to hit the market in the third quarter of 2021.
The release also hinted at the possible launch of a 24-inch iMac, expected to be officially launched later this year or in the first quarter of 2021. The iMac is currently available in the Apple Store in two sizes – 21.5 “and 27”. When the new iMac is released, it will be placed in the middle of the two existing computers. The report also suggested the introduction of a smaller Mac Pro. Probably about half the size of the normal Mac Pro, but with a similar design, it is not yet known whether the new workstation will replace the original or be an additional variant. No release date is known for the new Mac Pro either.
The newly announced M1-powered MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini will ship on November 17th.
