Reports suggest new MacBook Pros will arrive in 14-inch and 16-in screen sizes and offer flat design like the iPhone 12. Also expect more old features to return in the upcoming MacBook lineup.
Leading Apple Analyst, Ming Ching Kuo suggests that Apple might introduce there newest Silicon Macs in 14-inch and 16-inch screen sizes. And, that it will also replicate the gorgeous flat edge design earlier adapted in October by the iPhone 12. As seen by MacRumours in a note to investors, Kuo said:
In terms of casing design, the new models [MacBook Pro] cancel the curvy design of existing models’ top and bottom parts and adopt a flat-edged form factor design similar to the iPhone 12.Kuo
The new design won’t be noticeable from the front, you will notice the redesign from right and left view. Currently the MacBook Pro features slightly curved edges on the top and bottom. Though the flat design may look appealing, you might need to readjust if you pick up your MacBook from curved edges.
In terms of power, the 2021 MacBook Pro may include a faster M1 or the M-series chipset. And, Apple might also reintroduce the SD card slot in the upcoming MacBook Pro for photographers and content creators.
According to a Bloomberg report; Apple is dropping the Touch Bar from new MacBooks. The Touch Bar, introduced in 2006, replaced the traditional function keys with a multifunctional mini OLED touch-sensitive display that changes depending on the work being done on the MacBook.
However, the Touch Bar didn’t work well for the majority of Apple fans. You will find numerous complaints online about the unresponsiveness of the Touch Bar and how the physical function keys helped users reduce brightness or increase volume without needing to tap more than once. So it’s good news for those MacBooks users that the upcoming MacBooks may come with the traditional function keys, or maybe something new. I mean Apple is full of surprises, you agree, don’t you?
