Apple is apparently preparing for high demand from next-generation MacBook Pro 14- and 16-inch buyers, so it has added a new supplier to its Mini-LED display chain before launching.
to the Digitimes report, Apple has added Luxshare Precision Industry to the supply chain as the second SMT supplier for its Mini-LED display monitors. The company previously only contracted with Taiwan Surface Mounting Technology to supply SMT components for the iPad Pro Mini-LED.
The new MacBook Pro models are likely to be widely acclaimed by users for their exciting new changes. In addition to the new Apple Silicon chip, these laptops will have a fresh look for the first time since 2016 and will come with flat edges and no touch bar.
Digitimes says the new generation MacBook Pro will be available in the fourth quarter of this year, from October to December. The publication had previously quoted some sources as saying that supply is likely to be available at the end of the third quarter, but their new forecast is more in line with market expectations. Last year, Apple introduced a new MacBook Pro with the same familiar look but the M1 chip. Now we expect the new generation MacBook Pro to be much more attractive than the November 2020 version.
Apple first used the Mini-LED display on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The device was introduced in April but was launched in May due to high demand and production problems. The global chip shortage situation, which lasts at least until the end of the year and may last for several years, has made things difficult for all companies in the tech world, and Apple is no exception.
Earlier it was reported that the next MacBook Pro will be released without the display at the bottom of the screen and will probably use the M1X chip. This laptop may also have a UHS-II SD card slot.
