- Throughout the year, numerous reports surfaced about new MacBook Pro models due for release at WWDC.
- The 14 and 16 inch MacBooks should be equipped with a mini LED display and M2 chip.
- But Apple hesitated and refrained from a release. When will new MacBooks appear in 2021?
WWDC 2021 is history, there were many notable innovations, but no new Apple hardware. After the presentation of the iPad Pro with M1 chip and mini-LED display, observers expected a timely announcement of new MacBook Pro models. In the run-up to the WWDC, there were suitable reports, for example the Touch Bar should be omitted and the MacBook Pro should get back numerous connections.
And now? When can we expect the new MacBook Pro generation? The US magazine MacRumors reportedthat the mass production of the M2 chipset has already started, but that there have been production bottlenecks in the components required for the mini LED display. These have now been fixed, but the schedule has already been messed up.
Sources from Asia (DigiTimes and Nike Asia) report mass production of new MacBook Pro models in the third quarter (July to September). While some publications speak of a release postponement until 2022, analysts such as the well-known “Apple Prophet” Ming-Chi Kuo see a market launch in the second half of 2021.
Suppliers of mini LED displays position themselves
Digitimes also reports that the same suppliers that provide Apple with mini-LED units for the iPad Pro 12.9 are now ramping up production to allow Apple to produce new MacBook Pro models with 14- and 16-inch displays. According to the report, the new MacBook Pro models are expected in September.
Netzwelt says: Waiting for autumn
Should new MacBook Pro models be released later this year, and things are looking strong right now, October and November are the ones to keep an eye on. Apple will probably first introduce the iPhone 13 and the Apple Watch Series 7 in September, and more hardware in October or November as part of a separate event.
A new MacBook Pro would fit well into the picture. For example, the first MacBooks with the M1 chip appeared last November.
