Finally the MacBook Pro will have a decent camera in this 2021 — 2022

A new generation of MacBook Pro with Apple Silicon is about to come. Not immediately, but for the final months of this year, therefore having a renewal of the range since the 13-inch model incorporated an M1 chip in November 2020. In addition, we would also have a renewal for the 16-inch model, which It has been almost two years since it was renewed. We review below the expected news they would have these new teams.

A webcam that arrives later than expected

Incorporating a camera into a laptop has been a standard in the computer industry for many years. Apple was no less and has also been incorporating them throughout its range of MacBooks for quite some time. However, in these years numerous users have complained about seeing how the Californian company continued to incorporate 720p cameras. Yes, these are very good and for many users it may be the least of it, but in the era of telecommuting and with distance learning with meetings, classes and other telematic events it seemed too outdated.

Already in the 27-inch iMacs of 2020, a 1080p lens , though both the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro M1 stuck with 720p. according to filter Dyland , the 'Pro' laptops that Apple will launch at the end of 2021 will finally incorporate this camera and it looks like it will be more like the one we have in the 24-inch iMac. This equipment incorporates a lens of this resolution that considerably improves the image itself, but with added via software that make it much brighter and will even allow portrait mode in FaceTime with the arrival of macOS Monterey in the fall.

And although this information is not official, it would be strange to think that it did not arrive by itself. But the fact that it was a leaker like Dylandkt who said it, makes the possibility more whole. We remember that he was already right with other information in the past, the most recent being that the iPad Pro 2021 would incorporate the M1 chip, something that he stated several months before the official announcement by Apple.

M1X chip, new ports and redesign

Continuing with the analysis of this leaker , this year's MacBook Pro would incorporate a M1X processor which would be an improved version of the current M1, giving more power if possible for functions such asUsing a chroma key in Final Cut Proor the thousands of actions you can carry out in other professional applications. In this way Apple reserves the M2 chip for the 'Air' models that would be launched in early 2022. To this would be added the return of ports such as MagSafe, HDMI and even a card reader . Nothing new if we see the MacBook from a few years ago, but it does represent a change from what we had been having in these years. Also noteworthy would be the TouchBar removal , a characteristic element of the range loved and hated in equal parts.

In terms of design it seems that the 13-inch model will become 14-inch , although it is not known exactly if it will be a very deep design change or if it will respond more to a change like the one that the 15-inch MacBook Pro had in its day by reducing the front frames and becoming 16 inches in a very similar size . Precisely this 16-inch model will also be renewed, although in this case an abrupt change seems ruled out and it will probably end up mounting a similar body.
