The MacBook Pro will have a notch according to the latest rumors, and two variants: one with the ‘M1 Pro’ and one with the ‘M1 Max’

The notch will come to the new Mac Pro. This is indicated by the latest rumors that also already give a name for the new Apple chips, which will not be called M1X or M2 as had been foreseen until now, but ‘M1 Pro’ y ‘M1 Max’.

The new 14 and 16-inch models will therefore arrive with that notch that in the end many manufacturers ended up copying on Android mobiles. That option will allow have a nearly frameless screen even at the bottom, and the flip of the SD reader, the MagSafe connector or the HDMI port also seem more than likely.

Bye, Touch Bar, hello notch (no Face ID)

As we said, not even the lower frame will be barely visible, something that even will make the ‘MacBook Pro’ logo disappear that we normally found identifying the team.

These latest rumors confirm again that in addition to the USB-C ports, these devices are expected to have an SD card reader, an HDMI port and even the return of MagSafe, the charging port with a magnetic connection that Apple used on many of its computers before 2016.

In this redesign the Touch Bar will also disappear, that small touch screen that allowed you to use virtual keys. Apple will replace it with the traditional row of function keys.

The arrival of the notch —if confirmed— raises a differential symbol for these teams: This year its size has been reduced in the iPhone 13 and there is already talk of an iPhone 14 with a hole in the screen, but Apple seems to have decided to take advantage of the concept in the MacBook Pro.

That makes it possible to reduce frames at the top and, of course, make design more recognizable than ever and differential compared to previous MacBook Pro models.

That notch, however, will not be so remarkable in terms of its internal components: according to an additional filtration we are not expected to have Face ID technology, and it would just house a better webcam for video conferencing.

Attentive to the M1 Pro and M1 Max, and above all, to its GPU

The new rumors about the design are complemented by the theoretical final name of the new SoCs of these teams. The successors of the M1 will not be the M1X, but the ‘M1 Pro’ and the ‘M1 Max’ according to Bloomberg.

Both chips will have a 10-core CPU in which eight will be high-power and two will be high-efficiency. The difference between the two will be in the GPU: in the M1 Pro that GPU will have 16 cores and in the M1 Max with 32.

This teams they can also support up to 64 GB of RAM, another fantastic piece of information, especially considering that the 16 GB limit that the current Apple M1 chips have was criticized a lot.

The event also expects the possible introduction of the new AirPods 3 and even a Mac mini which would also have some of the new variants of the M1 chip.

In a few hours the rumors will be confirmed: in Engadget we will be doing a full coverage of the event, which is held at 7:00 p.m., local time in mainland Spain.
