Earlier this year, there was some excitement when it was rumored that Apple could launch new MacBook Pros at WWDC. Obviously that did not happen, which wasn’t that surprising since WWDC is usually a software and services focused event, but at the same time, it was a bit disappointing since the new MacBook Pros were rumored to feature brand new designs, new display options, and also more ports.
However, if the latest report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is accurate, those holding out for the new MacBook Pros won’t have to wait until 2022 because he claims that the new MacBook Pro laptops are still on track for a 2021 launch. He even suggests that the previous claims of a summer launch are still possible because since summer technically runs until mid-September, it could still happen.
Obviously for such a major product launch, Apple would want to host an event around it and if you recall, there was also a recent report about how Apple’s iPhone event could be held in September, so maybe Apple could use the event to make the announcement. However, similar to WWDC, Apple doesn’t usually mix its Mac and iPhone events together, so don’t get your hopes up just yet.
Another possible date could be towards the end of the year. Apple sometimes hosts an event then for more iPad and Mac related announcements, like in 2020 when they announced the first M1 Macs. Either way, only time will tell if this latest prediction will hold.
