Wedbush analyst Dan Ives believes that 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros Refurbished will be among Apple’s announcements at the Worldwide Developers Conference, which tends to focus on software, next week.
Updated MacBook Pros at WWDC
The recent rumors provide a pretty decent picture of what the new one would look like. Macbook pro. The updated laptops are supposed to be a pretty major rethinking of the professional-grade M1 laptop that Apple introduced last November.
Among the changes will be a redesigned chassis, a integrated SD card reader and a HDMI port , a MagSafe charger and a faster M2 chip. However, the next generation will supposedly not come with a LED touch bar.
An earlier report from Bloomberg described the new processors that will power the updated MacBook Pros:
Apple is planning two different chips, codenamed Jade C-Chop and Jade C-Die: both include eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores for a total of 10, but will be offered in variations of 16 or 32 graphics cores. .
High-performance cores kick in for more complex jobs, while low-power cores run at slower speeds for more basic needs like web browsing, preserving battery life. The new chips differ from the design of the M1, which has four high-performance cores, four energy-efficient cores, and eight graphics cores in the current 13-inch MacBook Pro.
More expectations for WWDC
Ives’ other expectations for the WWDC 2021, include iOS 15 (which is a fact for the event). He thinks iOS 15 “It will be very focused on privacy protections for new devices.” The new operating system of the iPhone will also include “Various lock screen notifications / changes and potentially a revamped iMessage feature set.” Ives believes privacy will be the main theme of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s keynote speech. Ives says there will be (as expected) updates for macOS, watchOS, iPadOS, and tvOS.
Also, he thinks Apple will drop some “breadcrumbs” about future products. This includes the long awaited headphones Apple glass, scheduled for summer 2022, and a possible Apple Car in 2024. Ives writes that Apple will have some news or partnership information available this summer. The WWDC this year will help “lay the groundwork” for these product topics for the next few years.
