M1X MacBook Pro: According to a report from DigiTimes, Apple plans to unveil its revamped 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with mini-LED screens, an all-new design, and a faster Apple silicon engine in September after months of rumors and conjecture.
Despite expectations that the new MacBook will be shown at WWDC 2021, Apple did not reveal new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. We didn’t know an estimated debut date for the new MacBook Pros until after WWDC was over. That may change in September, according to a fresh rumor from DigiTimes (via MacRumors), when Apple is expected to release new MacBook Pro models with the iPhone 13 series.
In September, the M1X MacBook Pro will be released alongside the iPhone 13.
Apple is already ramping up manufacturing of mini-LED screens for the forthcoming M1X MacBook Pros, according to the source. Furthermore, the source indicates that Apple will unveil the new MacBook Pro models in the late third quarter of this year. Because the third quarter runs from July to September, and Apple usually releases new iPhones in September, we may expect to see both new iPhones and new MacBooks during the presentation.
According to DigiTimes, maximum sales of the M1X MacBook Pro are expected in October. Apple is expected to introduce 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models during the event, with delivery beginning in October, similar to what it did with the new 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro with mini-LED Display and 5G connectivity.
The latest revelation corresponds with Mark Gurman’s newsletter from last month, in which he stated that we are unlikely to hear any new product announcements from Apple in the coming weeks. Gurman hinted at the prospect of bigger iPad displays in the future in the same newsletter. Take this latest claim with a grain of salt, though, since the launch date may be pushed back owing to a global chip shortage.
