Ming-Chi Kuo: MacBook Pro with completely new design and hardware will be unveiled in the third quarter of 2021
According to AppleInsider Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst of Apple products, claims in his latest note to investors that the tech giant is planning a new version It will update the MacBook Pro this year with 14-inch and 16-inch displays, and both new models will reportedly feature a flat-edge design. They find that it is more compatible with the modern design language of this company; Of course, it should be noted that the current MacBook Pro also uses flat edges; But it is believed that Apple will eliminate the curvature of the lower surface of the chassis and use a completely flat design, apparently in the design language of the iPad Pro or iPhone 12 will be similar.

quoting this analyst, It is expected that the next MacBook Pro models could revive the MagSafe charger after a long time on Mac computers, and the people of Cupertino are expected to use the touch bar OLED display. Abandon the not-so-popular Touch Bar in favor of physical buttons. Meanwhile, some users praise the flexibility of the touch bar; But evidence suggests that developers have not fully understood the potential and components of this capability; Because only a few of them use dynamic controls in their programs.
According to the report, it is said that Cupertinos will equip their high-end laptops with more ports; Because Mingchi Kuo believes that future devices will have a variety of ports; So that most users will no longer need to buy converter dongles.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will use the new laptop will use the same thermal pipe system as the 16-inch MacBook Pro; Hence, more space is provided to accommodate a more powerful chip and high heat control. Finally, the new system is said to be much better than the current 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, and can greatly increase the computing power. Additionally, Kuo claims that the high-end iPhone models (probably the Pro models) coming in 2021 will most likely use a vapor chamber (VC) heating system that Apple has been heavily testing. VC thermal system provides more computing power and higher connection speed to 5G technology due to keeping components cool; Therefore, the use of the said technology in flagship iPhones will be very useful in order to cool the device during extreme pressure.
In the documents of Ko’s note, it is stated that the giant of the technology world will focus on Apple’s silicon processors and It probably won’t use versions based on Intel processors in its new laptops; This means that Apple will use the M1 processor or a more powerful version that has not yet been announced in its new computers. Also, MacBook shipments are expected to grow by 25 to 30 percent annually due to their new processor and redesign and reach 20 million units in 2021, which Ko believes that 60 to 70 percent of these shipments are redesigned laptops. .
According to previous rumors, it is said that the Apple silicon chip consisting of 12 processing cores will be used in the 14.1-inch MacBook Pro, and apparently Apple will launch it in March 2021. (March 2019) considered. But Mingchi Ku once again emphasizes that Apple will unveil the redesigned model of Mac computers equipped with 14.1-inch and 16-inch screens in the third quarter of 2021. Also, it is possible that the aforementioned MacBooks will be equipped with mini LED displays.
