Apple is slowly transitioning to its ARM-based Apple Silicon platform with the M1 chipset. A lot of the MacBook models already come with this chipset. Reportedly, the company is also working on a revamped MacBook Pro models that will come in two different sizes: 14-inch and 16-inch. An official spokesperson has also mentioned that the new device could become official at the upcoming WWDC.
However, it remains unclear if the new MacBook Pro would be powered by the M1 chipset or don the new M2 or even the M1X chipset which has already gone into mass production. It should be remembered that the old MacBook Pro models are powered by the M1 chipset which may mean that the new revamped MacBook might be powered by a new chipset that is yet to be launched by Apple.
The new MacBook Pro model might come with a 10-core Apple silicon chip with eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores, along with 16 or 32-core GPU options and support for up to 64GB RAM.
In an earlier report, it was stated that the 14-inch and 16-inch models of the MacBook Pro will come equipped with a Mini-LED backlit display. A few other sources have claimed that the company might bring back the MagSafe magnetic charging to the MacBook. The Touchbar might go extinct, and in its stead, the tech giant is planning to include physical function keys. Moreover, the upcoming MacBook Pro could also feature an HDMI port and an SD card along with the Thunderbolt/USB-C ports.
Apple had launched the iMac in various colors; in keeping with this thread, Apple could also launch the new MacBooks in various colors. As for the pricing range, it is being predicted that its price will be in close proximity with that of the newer models.
