The latest macOS Monterey beta may have confirmed the display resolution of the unannounced 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros from Apple. Within the System Information app, two new entries appear in a list of display resolutions, likely hinting at the upcoming devices.
As first reported by MacRumors, the two new display resolutions found within the macOS Monterey beta are listed as “3456 x 2234 Retina” and “3024 x 1964 Retina”. It’s particularly interesting to note that neither resolution is currently supported by Apple. This likely means that they are reserved for the upcoming MacBook Pro models.
The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are widely expected to be announced later this year. It’s said that the devices will support Apple’s new ‘M1X’ processor and will feature a brand new design. Currently, the 13-inch MacBook Pro supports a resolution of 2560 x 1600 while the 16-inch supports 3072 x 1920. Based on that, the new models will be receiving a significant new boost in resolution, which should please users.
On top of improved display resolutions, the new MacBook Pros are rumoured to be bringing the MagSafe charger back into the fold. Additionally, an SD card slot and HDMI port are said to be added into the mix as well. Plus, the Touch Bar is said to be retired from the design.
There’s still no definitive word on when Apple will reveal the new products.
