Oct. Apple celebration: MacBook Pro 14-inch 2021

It’s becoming more like it’s likely that the MacBook Pro 14-inch 2021 will be available in the autumn. According to his most recent Power-On Newsletter, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claimed that the MacBook Pro 2021 models “should launch within the next couple of weeks.”

Since the initial chip was based on ARM Apple Silicon processor was dubbed”the Apple M1 chip It’s likely that Apple will name the new version of this chip M1X. One report suggests Apple is planning to introduce a 20-core Apple Silicon processor for its 2021 Macs. It’s an upgrade of a substantial amount from the eight-core (4 high-performance, four-efficiency) chips.

Alongside it is the MacBook Pro 14-inch 2021, the MacBook Pro 16-inch 2021 is likely to debut in the near future. It’s going to be quite an amazing machine. In addition to the fact that Apple is likely to offer an LED display in mini size and powerful M1X chips, but we’re expecting the return of desperately needed HDMI as well as SD card slots, as well as MagSafe charging.

Another major change that is brewing to be announced for 2021’s MacBook Pro is the loss of the Touch Bar. According to analyst Ming-Chi-Kuo, the touchscreen band will be replaced by a set of physical keys, similar to keys that are found on other laptops as well as the MacBooks prior to 2016.
