According to information from the specialist of the apple brand “Dylandkt”, the next version of the MacBook Pro, expected in 14 and 16 inches, should be more expensive than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro M1. The main player in this change is likely to be the M1X chip, an evolution of the current M1 chip. As the Apple analyst explains on his Twitter account, it will be interesting for people wanting to upgrade their computer to turn to this new model, which should still be “significantly” more expensive.
“Dylandkt” also explained on his Twitter account that both versions of the upcoming 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro will have identical performance. The M1X chip being integrated into the two computers. Currently the 16-inch model is more efficient than the 13-inch version despite its M1 chip.
“Dylandkt” told MacRumors that the 14-inch MacBook Pro will be priced close to that of the 16-inch model, a logical choice from Apple, with the two computers having very similar performance and features.
A MacBook Pro at 2000 €?
Today the Intel versions of the 13-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros all cost over € 2,000, respectively € 2,129 for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with an Intel Core i5 chip and 512 GB of storage, and € 2,699 for the MacBook. 16-inch Pro with an Intel Core i7 chip and again 512 GB of storage.
According to information from Dylandkt, the next MacBook Pro will therefore cost around € 2,000, or even € 2,500 for an M1X model with 512 GB of storage.
As a reminder, Dylandkt, while not the best-known Apple analyst, had correctly predicted the details of a number of Apple product launches in the past. As early as November 2020, he said on Twitter that the next-generation iPad Pro would have an M1 chip, which was found to be correct five months later, when the latter was released. He was also one of the few to announce the arrival of an iMac with an M1 chip and not M1X contrary to the predictions of specialists from the Cupertino company.
