The newest we got about Apple is the fact that that the company is on the verge of tweaking up its next-gen MacBook Pro laptops with some cool tech ever which includes the much anticipated M1 chipsets that was announced last year and then give them a much better displays as well as returning the magnetic charger.
This is an insider’s story based on a source closed to the happenings and Apple seems to always want to make the computers slightly bigger while sticking with the 14-inches on the smaller ones while the larger ones will get a 16-inch display which is said to be internally dubbed the J316.
Th adoption of the in-house Apple M1 chipset isn’t a news any longer and the inclusion of this technology will enhance the speed and capabilities of these computers to the max especially their graphic processing.
The introduction of such MacBook Pro line with the M1 chipsets will be the first time Apple is completely stepping away from Intel’s processors which it dropped last year when it released the Mac Mini as well the 13-inch MacBook Pro last November.
Majority of the reviews it received however were great which proved the M1 chipset to be much better at running software and even the Windows OS much faster than Microsoft‘s own custom-built chipsets.
Beyond the more powerful chips, Apple is also planning to step up the displays in its new MacBook Pros with brighter, higher-contrast panels, the anonymous inside person said.
But there obviously will be no defining difference between previous MacBook and the forthcoming ones in terms of their physical hardware even though there might be some mild tweaks here and there while we might gt them about the middle of the year according to the said report.
An Apple spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
However one of the biggest design changes on the computer will be the re-introduction of the charging capacity which was changed over the years as Apple introduced the usage of the USB Type-C on its laptop computers which aided a stealthy file transfer which also made it easy to grab other USB Type-C and use it on the computer. The return will definitely change that landscape which is something Apple always wanted which is to be the sole provider of its own computer accessories.
The introduction of the MagSafe on the new iPhone 12 seems to be the main reason the company is going back to the route which is something we might definitely see on other future iPad as well. The technology on its laptop line might be a good idea considering the fact that you don’t have to move it around as things basically sit into a single place easily as well as not fearing if someone trip over your charging cable at the office whereby your laptop end up tumbling through the air instead, a quick to detach charging cable in such scenario is a good idea but its just an added value.
Based on the report we got, the re-introduction of the MagSafe technology on the MacBook Pro line up will make charging them up pretty faster and the design is said to be similar to the ones we’ve been familiar with in the past. Which in any case confirms the fact that Apple is done with the USB Type C and might never make it again to any of its devices in the future not even the future iPhone 13 if we get one later on this year.
In developing its next set of Mac laptops, Apple has also tested versions that remove the Touch Bar from its laptop keyboards. The introduction of the Touch Bar technology was part of the 2016’s redesign which turns a row of the computer to a touch capacitive mini screen that is quite effective even though many users reported not to be using them.
However I find the Touch Bar very useful to perform really quick tasks such as search and so forth but a full blown touch screen on a MacBook Pro won’t be a bad approach if Apple can ever consider this technology which had been implemented on Windows PC but my gut tells me Apple might never go this route as it has now positioned its iPad line as its mini touchscreen-enabled computer.
Apple is also planning a redesigned MacBook Air, but that is not expected to be released until long after the next MacBook Pros so its definitely one at a time with Apple’s executives this time around.
