Shipments of the MacBook Pro are likely to be delayed until the fall

Faceoff bewteen Apple MacBook Pro & Microsoft Surface Laptop 4

These predictions are based on claims from Apple suppliers stating that shipments for the new device will begin in the year’s third quarter, which runs from July to September. However, there isn’t absolute clarity over whether these shipments refer to the new MacBook Pros or separate components for the laptops.

While there were hopes that Apple would announce new MacBook Pro models at WWDC, the keynote did not mention anything regarding it. According to the latest predictions, the device will now be released in the third quarter of 2021.

Rumors suggested that WWDC would have featured more product announcements, possibly Apple’s new MacBook Pro models. However, after being a no-show at the conference, the device will now be delayed until the third quarter of 2021, according to various reports from media outlets such as DigiTimes and Nikkei Asia. A paywalled preview of a DigiTimes report reads:

“Apple is expected to roll out two new MacBook Pro models later in 2021, with shipments slated to kick off in the third quarter, according to industry sources.”

These supply chain reports regarding the delay in the mass production of Apple’s new MacBook Pro models mean the company gets sufficient time to announce their release before the year ends.

The new Apple MacBook Pro models are forecast to change quite a few things. They are expected to sport a brighter mini-LED display and an improved design featuring a more streamlined top and bottom. Moreover, they will bring back a few controls that were absent in the 2016’s Apple MacBook Pro models, including an HDMI port, SD card slot, and a magnetic charging port. Reports also suggest that physical Function keys will make a comeback replacing the Touch Bar.

Rumors suggest that Apple’s new MacBook Pro models’ redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch displays will be powered by the M1X chip, a faster iteration of the M1 chip. Renowned Apple YouTuber Max Balzer was among the first to notice “m1x MacBook Pro” as one of the tags listed by Apple on their WWDC keynote YouTube upload. Other tags included iOS 15, M1X, iOS, developers conference, and more.

After the release of the M1 silicon chip in November, theories point towards the M1X being Apple’s redesigned chip for their new MacBook Pro models. Apple could very well be confirming said theories by including the tag under its keynote. On the other hand, this could just be a tactic to bump up the video by utilizing the rumors around the chip.
