According to the latest report from Taiwan’s DigiTimes, Apple partners have begun mass production of 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros. It is reported that by the end of November, monthly deliveries of updated firmware should reach 800,000 pieces. The announcement of new products is likely to take place in late October or early November this year.
If earlier rumors are to be believed, the 2021 MacBook Pro should be different from its predecessors with thinner cases with straight sides, mini-LED screens and next-generation Apple Silicon processors. There’s also a chance that Apple will bring back an HDMI port, SD card slot, and magnetic charging port to its laptops this year.
Earlier, the authors of DigiTimes reported that the updated MacBook Pro will be released in September this year, simultaneously with the iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7 and AirPods 3. However, the announcement of new apple laptops is likely to take place in the second half of autumn.
This is supported by the recent appearance of a pair of previously unknown MacBook Pros in the database of the Eurasian Economic Commission. Based on experience, we can say that new devices enter the regulator’s database about 2-3 months before the official announcement.
