It’s that time of the year when there are barely any scheduled releases of new devices but this news may cheer you up and might give you something to look forward to. Apple intends to launch the new MacBook Pro family along with two new iPad models later this year.
Mark Gurman’s newsletter Power On suggests that the coming few weeks are not going to be as exciting in terms of releases as not a lot of news is expected. Apple has not yet released anything about the new MacBook Pro models nor the low-cost iPad and iPad mini but it may begin to build up hype for its products in the coming weeks.
The iPad mini has been long overdue for an update, the majority will be looking at the new MacBook line and what it holds.
Previous reports from a reliable tipster had suggested that Apple is expected to launch a 14″ and a 16″ MacBook Pro in late October or early November, and in those releases, we can also expect a new Mac mini. Two of Apple’s biggest concerns have been releasing the new MacBook Pro despite the ongoing chip shortage and mini-LED production.
While Apple did add a new supplier to reduce the production burden, and with reports of TSMC giving Apple priority in matters of chip delivery, there could be additional factors at play.
Despite all this, it could still be possible that Apple may release limited units of the new MacBook Pro models at the time of its official release, stick levels are expected to increase shortly. Gurman also reports that Apple is exploring larger iPad screen designs that go beyond the 12.9″ threshold. Only time will tell if this will materialize.
