All-New M1 MacBook Pro Models May Not Release Until Late 2021
Earlier this week, a couple of reports suggested that Apple might announce the redesigned 14- and 16-Inch MacBook Pros at next week’s WWDC event but today, DigiTimes has claimed that Apple will reveal the new models in the second half of 2021 (via MacRumors).
Citing industry sources, the Taiwanese publication notes that the new 14-inch MacBook Pro will enter “volume production” in the fourth quarter of this year, whereas the larger 16-inch MacBook Pro is expected to enter mass production during the first quarter of 2022.
“Apple plans to release two miniLED-backlit MacBook Pro products – a 14-inch and a 16-inch – in the second half of 2021, noted the sources.
Judging from the supply of miniLED backlighting applications, volume production of the 14-inch MacBook Pro is likely to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021, and the 16-inch model will start in the first quarter of 2022, said the sources.”
In a recent Bloomberg report, Mark Gurman had noted that Apple is planning to announce the redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro as soon as early this summer.
I guess we’ll find out more at the WWDC event on June 7.
