Apple is planning a virtual launch event on Monday, October 18, which is expected to showcase the new MacBook Pro and AirPods. Ahead of the event, two reports claimed that the base model of the upcoming MacBook Pro will receive 16GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, an upgraded webcam, a new charging brick, and a mini-LED display. The newer MacBook models are expected to be powered by Apple’s upcoming M1X chipset. The information sharing analyzer on the mini LED display can have a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The tip is to share some of the features of the upcoming MacBook Pro model with Dylan (landdylandkt). Apple’s new laptops will come in 14-inch and 16-inch models with mini LED displays with small bezels on all sides and no logo at the bottom of the screen. The screen is also said to have a 1080p webcam. Dylan mentioned that the base MacBook Pro will get 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage, and the base will have the same configuration for both versions of the Apple M1X.
Additionally, Dillon mentioned that both MacBook Pro models will be priced the same and the upcoming laptop will also get new charging bricks. Macromers reports that new MacBook Pro models are equipped with a MagSafe boot port which requires new boot hardware.
Dylan also said the MacBook Pro models will no longer have a touchpad. New laptops must have HDMI, an SD card slot, and a MagSafe connection. Tipster also mentions that more than one view will be supported.
Performance analyst Ross Young mentioned in response to a tweet that the upcoming MacBook Pro model will have a mini LED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate and an oxide backplane option. This Tweet was viewed by Macromers. Young also mentions that the mini LED screen is a guarantee and a supplier of similar panels to those that offer screens for the iPad Pro models. The new MacBook Pro models receive Apple’s promotional technology, which can be found on the iPad Pro and iPhone 13 Pro models.
Rumors of an upcoming MacBook Pro model and design, similar to the third-generation AirPods-AirPods Pro, are expected to be released on October 18 at 10 a.m. PDT during Apple’s Paul Unleash event.
