Last month, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirmed that the Cupertino-based company will release a MacBook Air and a 13-inch MacBook Pro with mini LED displays and an M1 chipset this year. We now have more details about the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, which will get bigger redesigns.
Kuo points out that the new premium models will have a design with a notched square frame on the top and bottom. Also, the Apple MagSafe charging connector, which we last saw on Mac laptops in 2017, will return to the two laptop models.
The optional OLED Touch Bar will be removed completely, and all-new MacBook Pro models will have physical function keys instead.
Kuo also mentions that the choice of ports will be richer. An ARM processor with an Apple design will be the only option for new MacBooks. Both models will use a similar heat dissipation system as the current 16-inch version. It is not mentioned whether the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro will have mini LED displays.
