Every day, more rumors suggest that Apple will indeed introduce new, redesigned MacBook Pro models later this year. In a new research note obtained by 9to5Mac, reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reinforces that new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros will enter mass production in the third quarter of 2021.
The analyst suggests that the company is ready to start production of the next generation MacBook Pro in the coming months, which will be available in a new 14-inch and 16-inch form-factor. According to Kuo, Apple has been investing in more Mini-LED display suppliers as it plans to adopt the technology in more products, including the new MacBook Pro.
Apple’s first device with a Mini-LED display was the 12.9-inch iPad Pro introduced earlier this year. For those unfamiliar, Mini-LED relies on thousands of really small LEDs in the backlight, which results in higher contrast ratios and deeper blacks, similar to OLED.
Based on previous rumors (including other reports from Kuo), the new MacBook Pro will have a “flat-edged design” similar to what we’ve seen in the latest iMac, iPad Pro, and iPhone 12 designs. Apple also plans to bring back more ports to its laptop Pro, such as HDMI, SD card slot, and even MagSafe. This machine is also expected to have a more powerful M1X chip, the first evolution of Apple Silicon in Macs since M1.
The MacBook Pro is not the only one that will have a Mini-LED display. Kuo’s latest report also mentions that Apple wants to adopt the same technology in the next generation MacBook Air. However, that should only be announced sometime in 2022.
Earlier this week, leaker DylanDkt said that the new MacBook Air will likely be the first with an M2 chip (not the M1X, which will have a more advanced GPU focused on the Pro lineup). Dylan also heard that the new MacBook Air will be available in multiple colors, just like the new iMac. However, it’s unknown when exactly this new MacBook Air will be introduced.

It might be an arduous task for Apple, but the company is still on track to mass produce its new and redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models during the third quarter.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has some juicy details for you surrounding the redesigned MacBook Pro family, and while it is in line with other reports, the crux of the report is that Apple has not delayed the new products. With mass production expected to kick off in Q3, 2021, which is in between the July to September period, the company could unveil the new machines in Q4, 2021, according to a previous rumor.
This launch timeframe suggests that Apple might hold a dedicated online event in October for the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Alongside the new portable Macs, Apple will reportedly announce the Mac mini too, with all three products expected to feature the powerful M1X chip. The M1X is expected to feature 10 processing cores, with eight of them focused on performance, while the remaining two targeted towards power efficiency.
Apple could also announce the M1X in two GPU configurations, one with 16 cores and the other with 32 cores. As far as the redesign goes, the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models could resemble the iPhone 12 with flat edges on the side. Fortunately, that is not the only difference separating the new versions. We should also see the inclusion of MagSafe, an HDMI port, and an SD card reader.
The redesigned MacBook Pro models are also expected to be the first from Apple to feature mini-LED screens, after which the company is expected to transition the technology to the 2022 MacBook Air. We understand that you might have more questions about the upcoming machines, so we have extended our coverage below to answer those queries.
