Jakarta, Selular.ID – A few months ago, Apple officially began transitioning its Mac devices from Intel chipsets to its ARM-based Apple Silicon, starting with the new Apple M1 chip. The process starts with the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini, and will continue this year.
Many fans are expecting the Cupertino giant to launch two new MacBook Pro devices this year with 14-inch and 16-inch screens, and powered by the new Apple Silicon chipset. Ahead of the launch, some details about it have surfaced online.
As per the new report, the upcoming Apple MacBook Pro will come with both 14-inch and 16-inch displays and will feature a Mini-LED backlit display. It is also said that Ruiyi Optoelectronics will be the exclusive supplier of the new Mini-LED panels. As quoted by Gizmochina, on Friday (26/2/2021).
