This year’s Apple WWDC Developer Conference kicks off June 7, and as with every year, you can not only expect demos of the new “big” versions of macOS, iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and watchOS, but perhaps also some new hardware.
According to the analyst Daniela Ives Apple is about to introduce a new generation of MacBook Pros that will be redesigned to fit the new Apple chips. Apple already used the M1 chip in the 13-inch MacBook Pro, but its design hasn’t changed. With the new generation, there is also speculation about the return of HDMI or SD card readers.
The new chips significantly reduce the design, having a much lower TDP than Intel processors. It is not yet clear whether Apple will use the current M1 chip for the new MacBook Pro, which should come in 14 and 16-inch sizes, or the newer Apple M2.
However, for larger MacBook Pros, Apple should offer more powerful chipset models, so it is very likely that a newer M2 will be installed in different configurations. There has been speculation in the past that Apple designed its own chips to easily scale, so that they could contain dozens of processors and hundreds of graphic cores. In higher configurations, of course, it will appear even more in the future desktop Mac Pro.
