Apple is rumoured to launch new MacBook Pro models later this year. The new Pro laptops were supposed to launch earlier this year. While that did not happen, Apple is expected to debut its new, powerful MacBooks later this year. Reports in the past claimed that the new Pro MacBooks are slated to launch in November or December 2021. Now, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claims that the launch could happen sooner than expected. Apple is expected to launch the Pro laptops between September and November. Let’s take a look at the MacBook Pro specs, features and other details.

Apple MacBook Pro launch timeline tipped again

Apple is gearing up to launch new MacBook Pro models later this year. Bloomberg’s Gurman claims that the new MacBook will launch between September and November. He claims that the new MacBooks will go into production in Q3 2021. Apple could announce the laptops “between September and November at the latest,” Gurman said. He further revealed that the new MacBooks were slated to launch earlier this year. However, Apple had to delay the launch due to issues around the mini-LED production. 

Previously, a DigiTimes report claimed that the new MacBook Pros will launch in September. If true, the new MacBooks could launch alongside. It further claims although Apple will announce the Pro MacBooks in September, the shipments will peak in October. Therefore, Apple could start shipping the laptops in October or later. 

Some reports in the past have claimed that the 14-inch model will enter mass production in Q4 2021. The 16-inch model, on the other hand, is tipped to enter mass production in Q1 2022. These two models will feature a redesigned chassis and magnetic charging, according to a Bloomberg report. 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. 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.
