Bloomberg reported in May that Apple was planning to release a new MacBook Pro as early as this summer. “For Apple, all concentration is on the fall,” Mark Gurman writes in his Power On newsletter today, but the new MacBook Pro is still on track for a release this year.
Mark Gurman’s revelation was nearly a dream come true for MacBook Pro customers at the time: an HDMI port beside an SD card slot. Even the magnetic MagSafe method for charging was supposed to make a reappearance.
The new MacBook Pros are rumored to have eight high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores, with graphics core options of 16 or 32. Apple is developing two alternative chips, codenamed Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die, for the upcoming MacBook Pros, according to prior reports: both have eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores for a total of ten, but will be sold in either 16 or 32 graphics core variants.
For more sophisticated tasks such as iPhone data transfer the high-performance cores kick in, while the energy-efficient cores run at a slower speed for more fundamental tasks like web browsing, preserving battery life. The new CPUs differ from the M1, which in the current 13-inch MacBook Pro includes four high-performance cores, four energy-efficient cores, and eight graphics cores.
According to recent reports, “the next few weeks are going to be sparse on product news,” but “new MacBook Pros are still expected this year.” Even if the MacBook Pros aren’t introduced in the next weeks, a summer release is still a possibility because summer lasts until mid-September.
Furthermore, this comes just days after Apple leaker Dylandkt revealed last week that the next Mac would be unveiled in “late October or early November.” Dylan also confirmed previous claims like the new MacBook Pro having a brand-new appearance with flat sides, decreased bezels, and additional connectivity — including an SD card reader, MagSafe port, and HDMI port — back in May.
