Some time ago, Apple finally unveiled the latest MacBook Pro models, which have received a lot of attention thanks to their attractive features and high power. Apple usually offers only minor improvements to these laptops for a few years after paying special attention to the MacBook Pro and using the new design. For example, after the MacBook Pro 2016, which was based on a new design, the next models came with features such as new processors, different keyboards, a T2 chip, and larger batteries.
Relationships with the next generation MacBook Pro We can point to 4 expected features that will probably be implemented in the near future.
1. Face ID
Although senior Apple officials recently Touch ID has been suggested to be better for the MacBook Pro, but some rumors suggest a Mac-specific ID expansion. It seems that Apple initially intended to use a Facebook ID for the 2021 iMac 24-inch model, but for some reason this feature has not been implemented.
One of the reports states that Apple will launch a Facebook ID in the next few years 'S own computers. Given that the MacBook Pro now uses a screen notch, it looks like the platform is ready to use this feature.
2. M2 Pro and M2 Max chips
probably the next generation M1 Pro And Max will be introduced as M2 Pro and Max. Like the M1 Pro and Max chips, which are more powerful models of the M1 chipset, surely the next generation will bring much more power than the M2.
According to rumors, the M2 chipset will be available to users along with the new generation MacBook Air in 2022. Bloomberg reports that the processor, like the M1, has eight cores, but users can choose between two versions based on the 9-core and 10-core GPU. As a reminder, the number of cores of the M1 GPU reaches 7 and 8 cores. It is also likely that the M2 chipset will be produced with better manufacturing technology and will bring more speed and less power consumption. Compared to the previous generation. The information site recently reported that Apple is preparing the next generation of M1 Pro and Max chips, which will use an improved version of TSMC 5-nanometer technology.
Also, the third generation of Apple-specific chips, apparently in 2023 Comes with up to 40 processing cores and will be based on 3nm manufacturing technology.
3. Older monitors
It is said that Apple intends For future generations of Mac systems, including the MacBook Pro, use old dual-layer displays that double the brightness. The first MacBook Pro based on the Old Display is likely to hit the market in 2022. Samsung has also taken over the construction of these panels.
It is unlikely that this technology will be phased out next year. However, in a few years we will see the MacBook Pro use the old display, which will bring more brightness, better contrast and a more attractive black color to these laptops.
4. Modem 5G
Currently, the iPhone 12 series, iPhone 13, The new generation iPad Pro and iPad Mini support 5G internet. Although Apple is currently using Qualcomm 5G modems, the company plans to use proprietary 5G modems in 2023. That's why the MacBook Pro with 5G internet support may arrive this year.
Apple The MacBook Pro update did not take a specific approach. Given that Apple is now using proprietary chips for its systems, we do not yet have a clear reference for the timing of its next generations. Apple is no longer dependent on Intel for its computers, which means it can implement regular iPhone-like scheduling to introduce new generations of these systems.
Meanwhile, chip shortages have delayed the delivery of the current MacBook Pro And perhaps that will delay the release of the next generation. On the other hand, since the 2021 MacBook Pro models have much better features and capabilities than the previous generations, Apple probably will not be in a hurry to launch their next generation.
