two days ago, rumors suggested that Apple was gearing up for a new MacBook Pro
launch that would be followed by additional outputs sometime later this year.
Apple MacBook users have often found connectivity issues in their high-end
notebooks. They complain that standard ports that work on any other computer
brand don’t work on Apple. Apple users
are required to purchase expensive accessories, like dongles and docking
rumor started all thanks to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who said that MacBook Pro
models could feature an integrated HDMI port and SD card reader. Kuo also
claimed that the MacBook will launch in the second half of 2021. He didn’t stop
there – he wrote a letter and sent it to investors stating that the new
notebook will launch in the second half of the year and it will come with
significant changes and design re-launch.
also claimed that there will be changes added to the video output and memory
card reader, which will be marked as practical additions. He also went on to
say that Apple will be launching a 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook models. He also
believes that the classic MagSafe connector will be making a comeback and the
edges might be flatter than predicted.
also predicted that the new MacBook might come with additional ports to expand
the options for connectivity. Kuo was apparently not the only analyst who made
these predictions; Mark Gurman was on the same boat.
all know that almost every professional photographer and videographer relies on
Mac computers – they need the computer for editing like a fish needs water to
survive. Hence, keeping this in mind, bringing back the SD card reader sounds
like a great idea! Mac fans have hated the Touch Bar option and they aren’t too
excited for it to make a return.
these were all mere predictions – today, we’re down with official details!
fans will be elated to know that Apple’s 2021 MacBook Pro refresh is actually
coming with not just the SD card reader but also the HDMI port! Kuo and Gurman
were completely on point with their predictions!
faced massive criticism a few years ago when it replaced all the ports and came
up with a new USB Type-C standard. In fact, until 2015, MacBook Pro series used
to function on USB Type-A ports, Thunderbolts, HDMI, and the average SD card
reader. Not to forget, it used to come with MagSafe charging option. It was a
disaster for fans when Apple cut out all these features!
it seems like Apple has finally heard its fans and has decided to restore its
what the official website reports:
13-inch MacBook Pro will have an M1 chip with 8-core GPU and a 16-core Neural
Engine. The device comes with an 8GB memory and 256GB SSD storage. There’s also
a 13-inch Retina display with True Tone along with a Magic Keyboard.
Unfortunately, Touch Bar is making a return (fans may not approve of it) along
with Touch ID. There’s also a Force Touch trackpad, two Thunderbolt/ USB 4
16-inch MacBook pro has an M1 Chip with 8-Core CPU and 8-core GPU and all the
same features. However, its SSD storage is higher – 512GB. The processor speeds is definitely worth it. Among
the new set of features and specifications, you’d especially like the changes
done to the hard drive installations, VGA, and the Native Display Port.
MacBook comes in two colors: space grey and silver. The price starts at $1199!
You may also pay in installments, making it $108.25 per month.
