Four possible upgrades for Apple's future MacBook Pro

According to MacRumors, the 2021 MacBook Pro is now available. According to Apple’s practice, after major design updates, MacBook Pro usually receives smaller annual updates. After the release of the redesigned MacBook Pro in 2016, subsequent models successively introduced new processors, GPUs, adjusted keyboards, Bluetooth 5.0, T2 chips, True Tone, and larger batteries. The following are at least four possible upgrades predicted by foreign media for future MacBook Pro models.

Face ID

Although Apple executives said that Touch ID is more convenient on MacBook Pro, there is news that Apple has been working on "introducing Face ID in Mac" for some time. It is said that Apple initially planned to introduce Face ID on the 24-inch iMac in 2021, but the feature was postponed to later iterations.

M2 Pro and M2 Max

M2 Pro and M2 Max will probably succeed Apple's M1 Pro and M1 Max custom chips. Just as M1 Pro and M1 Max are enhanced versions of the M1 chip, M2 Pro and M2 Max are likely to be based on the M2 chip.

The M2 chip is expected to debut in the redesigned MacBook Air in 2022. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the chip will have the same 8-core CPU as the M1, and it is expected that it will have additional GPU cores, with 9-core and 10-core GPU options, higher than the 7-core and 8-core GPUs in the original M1 chip Options.

Double layer OLED screen

There is news that Apple is developing double-layer OLED screens for a variety of future devices, including MacBook Pro models, which can be up to twice as bright as existing screens.

5G connection

According to Bloomberg's Gurman, Apple has developed "low-level Mac support" for cellular connectivity. It is reported that Apple may be the first to add this feature to the next-generation MacBook Air, which will eventually be added to the MacBook Pro.

Apple currently relies on Qualcomm, but Apple is developing its own custom modem, which may appear on the iPhone as soon as 2023.

The report also said that Apple may release the next-generation MacBook Pro in mid-to-late 2022 or early or mid-term 2023.
