At seven o’clock tonight will be the keynote Unleashed, Where Hang on in the language of Molière. It will be the second of this end of the year after that of September when the iPhone 13, the ninth generation iPad and the sixth generation iPad mini were unveiled. Among the most anticipated products, it is undoubtedly new computers that are the most talked about.
According to Mark Gurman, who has seen it right many times in the past, it would be two MacBook Pros. Their screens would have a diagonal of 14 and 16 inches. But if we thought that the first would replace the current 13 inch, eventually the device could continue to be sold. It would then be a more affordable edition, with a price positioning similar to that of the Series 3 within the Watch range.
These MacBook Pros would also see the return of MagSafe charging from older models. The principle here is to use a magnetic plug which avoids damaging the charging port when the cable is torn violently. The result would then be a faster feed, but the power of which is still unknown.
Under the hood would also be two processors to choose from. Perhaps called M1X and M1Z respectively following the chip nomenclature on iPad Pro, the parts would be respectively composed of sixteen and thirty-two graphics cores for ten on the CPU side. The RAM would also be soldered to the same printed circuit, as has been the case since the launch of the proprietary Apple silicon program.
Gurman once again specifies that the Touch Bar could also disappear. The fault seems to be too little solicitation on the part of independent developers and users. The SD card port and the HDMI plug useful for video streams on an external monitor (while USB-C already plays this role very well), on the other hand, would take the opportunity to make their comeback on portable Macs.
Finally, the main display would adopt dimensions of 3,024 by 1,964 pixels or 3,456 by 2,234 pixels for the 16-inch MacBook Pro. Information for which the American editor seems to attribute the authorship, while others have spotted it before him.
