Tipster Jon Prosser claims that the upcoming MacBook Pros will also launch at the Apple developer event in June. Apple’s recent teaser poser ahead of WWDC also hints at the possible launch of its Pro laptops. One of the three character’s eye has the reflection of three Unicode names of emoji characters. These are Fork and Knife, sleeping z’s, and the MacBook emoji. The company has not officially confirmed the launch yet. Prosser’s had a hit-or-miss record off late and it is best to take his claim with a pinch of salt.

MacBook Pro 2021

A recent Bloomberg report claimed that the redesigned Pro MacBooks\ will launch in the summer of 2021. Apple is likely to unveil two new models with 14” and 16” screens. The 14-inch variant is codenamed J314, whereas the 16-inch model has the codename J316. These two models will feature a redesigned chassis and magnetic charging. They will also come with multiple ports, including the HDMI port and SD card slot.  

Apple will also launch two separate chips for the new Pro models. These are codenamed Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die. Both chips will feature eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores. The difference will lie in the GPU. The report claims that either model will come with 16 or 32 GPU cores. 

The M1 chip, in comparison, came with four performance and four efficiency cores. It also has eight graphics cores. The new chip will also come with support for up to 64GB of RAM as opposed to 16GB on the current M1 chip.
