While the rumors of Apple releasing a 14-inch MacBook Pro ended with Apple’s One More Thing event, it did not stop fans from unleashing their creativity and making their own concepts. User @JetFromTheNorth has just posted a concept of a 14-inch MacBook Pro supercharged by MX1 on Instagram.
Apple is expected to release a new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models consisting of Apple Silicon chips in the late quarter of 2021, driving growth in the laptop market share, and putting increased pressure on Intel.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that new 14-inch MacBook Pro and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with an Apple chip could arrive by the second or third quarter of 2021.
Other Apple Silicon Mac models that are said to be in the works include the new Mac Pro, iMac Pro, and iMac variants. Cupertino tech giant said that the transition to Apple Silicon would take about two years.
The M1 chip has been very well-received since its launch in 2020 and has delivered a performance that beats even top-line Intel chips. The M1 in the 13-inch MacBook Pro is almost as fast as a 16-inch MacBook Pro model consisting of an Intel CPU.
