For all of us waiting for the arrival of the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with mini-LED display, Ming-Chi Kuo brings us good news. The analyst claims (via MacRumors) that Apple remains on schedule to start mass production of these computers in the third quarter of the year.
Amid rumors that the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros could be delayed until 2022, the renowned Apple analyst says Apple will begin mass production in the coming months. The third quarter spans from July, which we are already in, to September, which means that if the information is correct the odds of a September or October launch gain strength.
Once the production machinery is running at full capacity, Apple is capable of manufacturing large quantities of devices every day. Add to this the fact that according to recent reports the company has been able to secure supplies of several key parts, and there should be plenty of stock available for a fall launch.
These MacBook Pros are generating a lot of buzz. On the one hand, there are rumors of a major redesign, along the lines of what the iMac M1 has undergone. On the other hand, there is a mini-LED screen, more ports for peripherals, and the M1 chip, or its successor. With these changes, many of us are waiting for an announcement and launch to renew our Macs.
With the transition from the more professional MacBook Pro to Apple silicon, it will only be the Mac Pro’s turn to complete the transition. A transition that Apple estimated in two years and that, therefore, could extend, at the latest, until October 2022. While rumors suggest that we will see new MacBook Air with M2 processors, soon all Macs will enjoy the benefits of Apple silicon.
