Small parenthesis regarding the new AirPods and AirPods Pro, and the new iPad Pro, iPad mini and iPad 9, whose arrival is expected in a few weeks, in a possible event in the month of March or April. Now let’s go back to the Mac world, where new information arrives on the upcoming iMacs, MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16.
iMac 2021: new design and five colors:
The rumors come directly from Jon Prosser, one of the most famous leakers in the Apple world. Prosser has published a new post on his Twitter account in which he announces the arrival of the iMacs in five new colors, similar to those already seen on the latest fourth-generation iPad Air (silver, space gray, light blue, green and rose gold). The render also confirms the design of the iPad itself, with squared edges and full screen display with rounded corners.
MacBook Pro 2021: traditional ports are back:
In the previous weeks, a lot of information has arrived on the new line of 14 and 16 ”MacBook Pros. Among the main innovations we find a new design, the farewell to the Touch Bar and the return of traditional ports along with a MagSafe 2.0. To date, the theory of the arrival of a number of additional ports along with the 4 Thunderbolt is becoming more and more insistent. The rumors agree in fact on the reintroduction of an HDMI port to connect an external monitor and a slot for reading SD cards.
One more thing: a Mac mini Pro is coming:
However, the news regarding the Mac world are not limited only to the updates of models already on the market. In recent days, the news of a possible arrival of a new product has made its way: the Mac mini Pro. As the name implies, this product would be an enhanced version of the current Mac mini with M1, positioned in a price range higher than the latter but less than that of the base iMac. The design, according to Jon Prosser, should be a hybrid between that of the old Power Mac G4 and that of the current Mac Pro. According to rumors, this Mac should be equipped with an M1X processor, as well as the new iMac and MacBook Pro 2021.
