MagSafe returns to MacBook Pro with MagSafe 3, featuring an updated design and supporting more power into the system than ever before. MagSafe 3 makes connecting a charge cable quick and easy while protecting MacBook Pro. Additionally, fast charge comes to the Mac for the first time, charging up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. The camera system taps into the powerful image signal processor ISP and Neural Engine of M1 Pro and M1 Max for computational video that enhances video quality — so users appear sharper with more natural-looking skin tones.
Delivering a next-level audio experience, the new MacBook Pro has industry-leading, studio-quality mics that have an even lower noise floor, resulting in clearer calls and voice recordings. A high-fidelity six-speaker sound system features two tweeters for a clearer soundstage and four force-cancelling woofers, resulting in 80 percent more bass. The sound system also supports spatial audio, which creates a sophisticated, three-dimensional listening experience.
So whether users are listening to music or watching a movie in Dolby Atmos, they will get a theater-like experience. Altogether, this is the best audio system ever in a notebook.

Coming later this fall, SharePlay will enable Mac users to have shared experiences together through FaceTime, and Universal Control will make it easy for users to work effortlessly across their Mac and iPad. When it comes to the environment, the new MacBook Pro raises the bar yet again, including an enclosure made with percent recycled aluminum, percent recycled tin in the solder of its main logic board, and, for the first time in a Mac notebook, the use of percent recycled rare earth elements in all magnets.
Both models are also built with 35 percent or more recycled plastic in seven components, and all of the packaging wood fibers are from responsibly managed forests or recycled sources. Today, Apple is carbon neutral for global corporate operations, and by , plans to have net-zero climate impact across the entire business, which includes manufacturing supply chains and all product life cycles.
This means that every Apple device sold, from component manufacturing, assembly, transport, customer use, charging, all the way through recycling and material recovery, will be percent carbon neutral.

As for Intel offerings, we began hearing predictions that there wouldn't be Intel versions of the MacBook Pros as early as last January -- and there haven't been any indications to the contrary to date. Thanks to chip shortages, you probably won't be able to get one right after they're announced. Earlier this month there were reports that the shortages would at least delay shipments until around the end of October or early November.
And those delays are independent of the roadblocks to producing the Mini-LED-based screens, which may result in only a limited volume of laptops available in In addition to an upgraded model of a inch MacBook Pro, we might be in for a inch replacement for the inch MacBook Pro, which could mean a inch screen that fits into the chassis roughly the same size as the 13 -- thanks to smaller screen bezels. That follows a similar trend we've seen in Windows laptops and the same approach Apple took when it transitioned from the inch to inch MacBook Pro models.
If the inch uses a new panel technology as indicated by the resolution rumor below, that would explain a price hike as well. Most industry watchers think there will be a price hike for the inch model over the inch, starting at closer to the top end of the latter's price range. Given the more expensive screen technology and current shortages, I wouldn't be surprised.
It makes you wonder if Apple will continue to offer the M1-based MacBook Pro 13 as a lower-cost option. A Mini-LED backlight-based display seems to be another given and an extremely welcome one: It would allow MacBook Pros to better support HDR at higher brightness and with better local dimming, essential for video editing or producing content for the Expecting similar technology - oxide backplanes, miniLED backlights and Hz refresh rates.
MacRumors spotted a reference to new screen resolutions in a late beta of MacOS Monterey : "3,x2, Retina" and "3,x1, Retina. Apple always likes to keep to a given range for its Retina screens, but the latter differs only slightly from the current 3,x1,; that's a strong sign that Apple will be offering a new panel. Alternatively, both resolutions would deliver the same ppi on the inch and inch models, respectively. Rumors here vary. Almost every device Apple has announced this year, from the iPad to the iMac, has adopted the flat-edged profile aesthetic that harkens back to the iPhone 4.
But it remains to be seen if Apple will adopt that for the MacBook Pro, given its clamshell design. And there hasn't been much traction to suggestions that the MacBooks might come in bright colors a la the iMac I have never been a fan of the Touch Bar, especially as a replacement for fixed function keys, so I receive these well-regarded rumors about the deprecation of the Touch Bar and return of real function keys with a bit of chair dancing -- and will be very disappointed if they turn out to be untrue.
Also, since Mini-LED typically generates more heat than other backlights, Apple could probably do with less need for heat dissipation near the display. Some news has also indicated a return of the MagSafe connection, but it's also possible they're confusing them with rumors about a new version of the recent filing with the Federal Communications Commission for a MagSafe charger for the iPhone.
As Apple introduced an upgraded p webcam first with the inch iMac and discontinued iMac Pro , then with the inch iMac, it makes sense to integrate one into the MacBook Pro as widely rumored , since it's probably used for videoconferencing more than many other of its systems. But while Touch ID is likely to remain, there hasn't been any welcome word about much-requested Face ID or 5G since we heard in January that it wouldn't be included. MacBook Pro Every rumor we've heard ahead of today's Apple event Apple's October launch event is minutes away, and rumors say new MacBook Pro models with a high-powered version of Apple's M1 processor could make an appearance.
Lori Grunin. Apple's "Unleashed" invitation to its event on October The lower-end inch model only included integrated graphics while the higher-end model continued to include a discrete Nvidia graphics card in addition to integrated graphics. On March 9, , the inch model was updated with Intel Broadwell processors, Iris graphics, faster flash storage based on PCIe 2.
Apple continued to sell the inch model until July In June , Apple announced a worldwide recall for certain 15" MacBook Pro computers after receiving at least 26 reports of batteries becoming hot enough to produce smoke and inflict minor burns or property damage.
The problem affected some , computers, mostly sold between September and February The company asked customers to stop using their computers until Apple could replace the batteries. Apple unveiled fourth-generation  and inch MacBook Pro models during a press event at their headquarters on October 27, All models, except for the baseline inch model, featured the Touch Bar, a new multi-touch-enabled OLED strip built into the top of the keyboard in place of the function keys.
The Touch Bar is abutted on its right by a sapphire-glass button that doubles as a Touch ID sensor and a power button. The models also introduced a "second-generation" butterfly-mechanism keyboard whose keys have more travel than the first iteration in the Retina MacBook. All ports have been replaced with either two or four combination Thunderbolt 3 ports that support USB-C 3. All versions can output to a 5K display; the inch models can drive two such displays. The inch models include a discrete Radeon Pro , or graphics card in addition to the integrated Intel graphics.
The flash storage in the Touch Bar models is soldered to the logic board and is not upgradeable, while in the inch model without Touch Bar, it is removable, but difficult to replace, as it is a proprietary format of SSD storage. A GB [a] storage option was added for the base inch model, down from the base GB [a] storage. On July 12, , Apple updated the Touch Bar models with Intel Coffee Lake quad-core processors in inch models and six-core processors in inch models, updated graphics cards, third-generation butterfly keyboards that introduced new symbols for the control and option keys, Bluetooth 5 , T2 SoC Chip , True Tone display technology, and larger-capacity batteries.
On May 21, , Apple announced updated Touch Bar models with newer processors, with an eight-core Core i9 standard for the higher-end inch model, and an updated keyboard manufactured with "new materials" across the line. A report by AppleInsider claimed that the updated "Butterfly" keyboard fails twice as often as previous models, often due to particles stuck beneath the keys.
The fourth-generation MacBook Pro received mixed reviews. On May 4, , Apple announced an updated inch model with the Magic Keyboard. The two Thunderbolt port version has the same Coffee Lake processors, graphics, and maximum storage and memory as the two Thunderbolt port models. The supported external displays was reduced to one, as the previous Intel-based models supported two 4K displays. Apple addressed many criticisms of the previous  generation  by restoring hard function keys in place of the Touch Bar, an HDMI port,  an SD card reader, MagSafe charging, and a higher base memory.
Other additions include a Liquid Retina XDR display with thinner bezels and an iPhone-like notch, ProMotion variable refresh rate, a p webcam , Wi-Fi 6 , 3 Thunderbolt ports, a 6-speaker sound system supporting Dolby Atmos , and support of multiple external displays.
These new models feature a thicker and more-squared design than their Intel-based predecessors. The keyboard features full-sized function keys, with the keyboard set in a "double anodized" black well. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Line of notebook computers.
