Kuo still believes that Apple plans to release a 16-inch and 14-inch MacBook Pro with a mini-LED, but they are likely to appear in the second or third quarter of 2021, and both will have “new form factors”. Rumor has it that the updated 16-inch MacBook Pro will go on sale in October or November this year.

|Kuo: The Apple MacBook Pro will get brand new 14 and 16 inch models with ARM chips in 2021
Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s most famous fan base, has released a new report that shows the release schedule for the next two generations of the MacBook Pro and the ARM-based MacBook Air. make some innovation.
At WWDC, Apple announced that all Macs will work with ARM chips in two years, i.e. with SoC. Which will not be completely different from the B12ic A12Z. Which is used in the current iPad Pro (from 879 euros on Amazon). The group confirmed that the first device based on this architecture should be delivered this year. But which model it was, but was not indicated.
Ming-Chi Kuo now sheds some light on the chart (via 9to5Mac). According to a well-known and often fairly reliable analyst, Apple should release a 13.3-inch MacBook Pro (from € 1,419 on Amazon) in the autumn based on ARM, but the design should not change.
Around the same time, the analyst predicted the start of production of the MacBook Air with Apple SoC, but whether the device would still be available at the end of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021, Ming-Chi Kuo did not want to do this. Exciting: Due to the significantly lower prices for the new SoC compared to the current Intel processors, Apple could lower the price of the MacBook Air.
However, the MacBook Pro models that will be released next year will be much more interesting: Ming-Chi Kuo says that Apple will provide its powerful ultrabooks with an updated design, with a smaller device, the display should grow to 14 inches due to thinner screen edges The laptop itself should not become much larger.
