Mark Gurman has offered up more details about next-generation MacBook Pro models. Earlier this year, Gurman claimed that Apple planned to release new models as early as summer 2021, but that has now slipped for some reason. While Gurman has not specified which MacBook Pros he is referring to, he has not changed his position since May 2021. Hence, it seems likely that Apple will release 14-inch and 16-inch models first, before revamping the MacBook Pro 13 by early 2022.
Apparently, Apple will release these next-generation models between September and November, which tallies with other rumours published by Ming Chi-Kuo. Reputedly, Apple has codenamed these models J314 and J316, details of which REvil leaked in April. Accordingly, Apple will start mass-producing J314 and J316 before the end of September, which are still expected to feature 'Jade C-Chop' and 'Jade C-Die' processors, along with MagSafe charging, an HDMI port and an SD card slot.
Supposedly, Apple hoped to announce new MacBook Pro models during the first half of 2021. However, mini LED-related production issues scuppered these plans and have delayed Apple by at least three months. Nonetheless, a MacBook Pro with a mini LED display, more ports and an M1X SoC containing up to 10 CPU cores and 32 GPU cores will blow many of Apple's competitors aside, even if it arrives a few months later than planned.
