Apple could reportedly surprise users with new MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models. With new rumors making the rounds online, it just might mean that new MacBook Pros are imminent. But we however are not really convinced.
Apple MacBook Pro 14-Inch and 16-Inch Models
Tech firm Apple could just be readying fresh MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch models and they will very much be making their debuts soon, if anything about the latest rumors from the rumor mill are genuine.
MacRumors was really keen-eyed enough to see a DigiTimes report that insists, well, add salt, and plenty of it that those MacBook Pros are going to be arriving just before the end of the year. The report in question further claims that they will stick with mini-LED displays, but however, make improvements in power efficiency for these very screens.
The New Mini-LED Panels Are 10% Brighter For the Same Power Usage
We have been revealed to that the new mini-LED panels are 10% brighter for the very same power usage, but the plan of Apple here is to maintain the image quality as it is and then reap battery benefits. The next-gen screen in other words will make use of the same brightness level, but will however draw less power, thus meaning that these laptops will last even longer away from a mains socket.
The New MacBook Pro Will Be Shipping In the Fourth Quarter Of 2023
DigiTimes reckons that the new MacBook Pro will be shipping in the fourth quarter of 2023, therefore they are imminent in theory, although we are not really sure, but we will be coming to that much later.
Apple Is Now Set To Run With Mini-LED Screens until the Year 2026
The other point made by DigiTimes is that Apple is now set to run with mini-LED screens until the year 2026, so there are really no apparent plans in bringing in OLED for the MacBook Pro in the near future (and as already rumored, we might just be waiting until the year 2027 for OLED to arrive). Worries about burn-in with laptop screens that are left turned on for longer periods of time are very much one of the key reasons and concerns with moving forward too quickly to the adoption of OLED.
Will the Revamped MacBook Pros Get the M3 Chip
It is however worth noting that the DigiTimes report also makes no mention of whether it is that these revamped MacBook Pros would be getting the
M3 chip. Presumably, the suggestion here is that they will stick with current-gen M2 SoCs then as if there was an M3 upgrade in the cards, you would even think that the tech site would have made mention of that.
