One of the respected and long-time Apple Watcher, Gurman believed that Apple will launch its new MacBook Pro with the Apple silicon design this summer only. The rumour was that Apple will replace the 16 inch MacBook intel design with the all-new 14 and 16 inches M1 MacBook. The new MacBooks with the M1 chips will be available with a MagSafe charger, more Thunderbolt ports, an HDMI port and an SD card slot.
It is also rumoured that all new 14 and 16 inches MacBooks will be powered by two different chips, codenamed Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die. Both of them will include eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores. Hence totalling the number to ten. But a buyer will be given an option to choose between 16- and 32-core graphics.
The prediction is that the RAM for both models will be around 64GB. So, till now the M1 chip models don’t provide RAM of more than 16GB. Therefore, it will have an improved Neural Engine for machine learning.
Also, the prediction claims that Apple is thinking of launching the higher-end Mac Mini with complement to the M1 MacBooks released the last year 2020. The Mac Mini is expected to have the same look with the same chip as the new MacBook Pro and four Thunderbolt ports.
Some of the rumours suggest that the new MacBook Pro will release in 2022. Again, the user will get two options for the processor. That will offer either twice or four times as much power as the chip in the new, aforementioned MacBook Pro. So, if the rumours are true then the option will be given to the user to choose between 20 and 40 cores processing. Along with this, it will be either a 64 or 128-core graphics option to choose from.
Now, the new MacBook Pro is likely to be a smaller version of the existing one. Also, it is believed that this time there will be a new model with the 24-inch MacBook that will be launched in the June 2021 and shipping for the same will start in July 2021.
