Apple just announced it is holding its next event on October 18 and it is highly likely that it is going to be about the new MacBook Pro. With the announcement, the rumours around the MacBook Pro gained momentum, and we are now learning more about the upcoming Apple high-end laptop. A new tip suggests that the 2021 MacBook Pro will feature a 1080p webcam, which means the best video calling experience on a Mac device. It also hints that the standard model of MacBook Pro will have 16GB of RAM, which means better performance.
Apple leaker Dylan has released a series of tweets leading up to the event, predicting what people may expect from the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros that the firm is expected to reveal. In addition to what we’ve learned so far, Dylan claims the new versions will include a 1080p webcam and that the 14-inch and 16-inch devices will have the same base configuration of 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
That is a significant upgrade if true, because Apple’s laptops have often been criticised for their mediocre cameras. There is a MacBook with a 480p camera, which is not acceptable by today’s standards. Some recent MacBook models have better-resolution FaceTime cameras, but even they leave some room for improvement. The 2021 MacBook Pro may finally address that issue.
Another important thing is the RAM, which the tipster said is going to begin at 16GB on the MacBook Pro coming later this month. Along with that, there is going to be at least 512GB of storage on the laptop. And this is going to be applicable to both the 14-inch and 16-inch models, which makes it similar to the 16-inch Intel-based MacBook Pro. More RAM would mean better performance, something MacBook Pros are known for. And with Apple’s new Silicon processor, things are going to improve.
Since the 2021 iMac with M1 processor that Apple launched earlier this year comes with a good 1080p FaceTime camera, it has become even more likely that Apple’s next high-end laptop may end up getting it for good.
