We have heard rumors that in terms of design the new MacBook Pro will feature flat design language with curved display edges and thin bezels. Also, that the device would launch in the coming months ahead. However, Jon Prosser claims that the M1X MacBook Pro will be announced at WWDC next month.
Prosser has also given an exclusive first look at the new redesigned M1X Mac mini which will be introduced as a new generation of industrial design for Apple’s standalone Mac. The new model is expected to work faster than the current one.
MacBook Pro will be announced at WWDC and M1X Mac mini
In Front Page Tech’s latest video, Prosser learned from a source that a new MacBook Pro will be announced at the coming event, WWDC. Apple is scheduled to brief the press right after the event about the machine, according to Prosser’s source. The machine will feature a 10-core chip and 32-core graphics.
Let’s talk about WWDC, more specifically, the hardware at WWDC. So here is the thing right, once in a while we do get new hardware at WWDC. And typically I tell you not to expect hardware because WWDC is a software developer-focused program, but sometimes we do get professional developer-focused hardware at the event.
Moving on to the M1X Mac mini, Prosser claims that the device will feature a new external chassis with a “plexiglass-like” reflective surface on the top, in an aluminum enclosure. The device will also have a number of ports available including Ethernet, HDMI out, four USB4/Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB-A ports.
The new Mac mini will feature a next-generation Apple Silicon chip with 8 high-performance cores and 2 efficiency cores, supporting up to 64 GB RAM, and featuring Thunderbolt lanes; quite the same specs as the MacBook Pro. As Prosser says, “do not let this new form factor fool you even a little bit.” With the specs same as a MacBook Pro, the device will be much beefier on the inside and will work outstandingly.
