According to industry sources, the light guide plate supplier Maolin Optoelectronics (GLT) will start shipments of Apple’s new generation of mini-LED backlight MacBook Pro series in the third quarter of 2021.
According to rumors, Apple plans to launch new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, each equipped with a mini-LED display and an improved M1 chip. These notebooks are expected to adopt a new design with a flatter top and bottom and more ports, including the return of HDMI ports, SD card slot, and MagSafe magnetic power interface. Rumors also indicate that the Touch Bar will be abolished in favor of physical buttons.
Consistent with the new iPad Pro, the mini-LED backlight will enable the new MacBook Pro models to have higher brightness and better contrast.
Multiple sources claim that the new MacBook Pro model will be launched in the second half of 2021, but the whistleblower Jon Prosser recently stated that at least one new MacBook Pro model will be announced at the WWDC next week.
