New MacBook Pro Models Coming at WWDC, Suggests Leaker

New MacBook Pro models are coming at WWDC, according to leaker Jon Prosser who has a mixed track record when it comes to predicting Apple's plans.


Prosser provided no additional information, but there are new 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models in the works. The new MacBook Pros will feature the most radical redesign to the MacBook Pro lineup since 2016.

Apple is planning to reintroduce the MagSafe port, and the 2021 MacBook Pro models will feature an HDMI port and an SD card reader in addition to a trio of Thunderbolt/USB-C ports, and multiple color options are a possibility.

There will be no Touch Bar included, with Apple returning to a traditional row of function keys, and there will be a redesigned thermal system to accommodate the upgraded Apple silicon chips that the machines are expected to include.

Bloomberg recently said that the new MacBook Pro models will feature 10-core Apple silicon chips with eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores, along with 16 or 32-core GPU options and support for up to 64GB RAM.

No other sources have indicated that the MacBook Pro models will be coming at WWDC, and it has been atypical for Apple to debut hardware at the event in recent years, but it is not unheard of. The new MacBook Pro models are expected to enter production in the second half of 2021, and reliable sources that include Bloomberg's Mark Gurman and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have suggested a launch in the second half of the year.

I can play this game too. Look new laptops in their wwdc picture. Plus maybe airpods? Then also they will talk about xcode, messages, terminal, and calendar. Maybe throw in some fancy new hairstyles for memojis.

Mark Gurman also said as early as summer, so Prosser is just regurgitating Gurman’s article. My take on Prosser is that he’s full of it.

It won’t happen, WWDC is entirely software focused only

don’t forget he mentioned last year hardware like AirPods max being revealed for WWDC last year and yeah.. software event only Prosser
2012: New 2012 MacBook Air, 2012 MacBook Pro, and the first MacBook Pro with retina display.
2013: 2013 MacBook Air, 2013 Mac Pro, and new airport extreme
2017: 2017 MacBook Air update, 2017 MacBook Pro, 2017 iMac, 2017 iMac Pro, 2017 iPad pros, and the HomePod
2019: 2019 MacBook Pro, Pro Display XDR
even in 2020, we got sort of a hardware announcement with the Apple silicon developer transition kit.
either way, within the last 10 WWDC‘s, 5 of them had hardware. So, using that logic, we really do have a 50/50 shot.
and given that the rumor is the new MacBook pros Will be ready to go for the summer, plus the fact that the 16 inch MacBook Pro hasn’t been updated since November 2019, I think that there’s a pretty good chance of them being announced.
