According to the research firm Trend Force, Apple could throw a 14-inch MacBook Pro next year. A news that may disappoint some!
If you’re one of those people who expect Apple to launch a 14-inch MacBook Pro this year, you might be disappointed. In fact, rumors about such an eventuality began to hit the web in 2019. However, it would appear that the reality is different. In a new report relayed by UbergizmoTrend Force says the 14-inch laptop is not expected to go into production until the first quarter of 2021. That means this MacBook Pro model isn’t expected to arrive until next year.
In any case, as Apple usually announces new products during this time of year, a presentation of the 14-inch MacBook Pro between January and March 2021 would not therefore be too surprising.
A mini LED display for the 14-inch MacBook Pro?
In addition to this information relating to the officialization of the 14-inch MacBook Pro, the Trend Force report mentions that this future laptop from the Cupertino company is likely to ship a Mini-LED screen, unlike previous models which are equipped with LCD panels. .
As a reminder, this new display technology not only reduces energy consumption, but also makes the panel thinner. In other words, Mini LED screens reduce the edges of the frame. They also offer better rendering.
A report that seems to corroborate some rumors
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about this eventuality regarding the release of the 14-inch MacBook Pro next year.
Earlier rumors had already suggested a postponement of the launch of the device in 2021. These followed a statement by Phil Schiller according to which Apple would have no plans around such a laptop.
Given this ambiguity, it is therefore advisable to interpret this Trend Force report with caution. However, launching a 14-inch MacBook equipped with a Mini-LED display will make sense for Apple given the benefits this technology provides.
