What to expect
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the company plans at least two new MacBook Pros with significant design and specs changes. Some of the critical changes would be the inclusion of an SD card reader and HDMI port.
Last month, Kuo had given details of the 2021 MacBook Pro’s design. He said that the laptops would have squared-off sides in both the top and bottom parts. That is, they would draw a lot of inspiration from the iPad Pro and iPhone 12 models.

Besides, the SD Card slot feature was first tipped by Mark Gurman of Bloomberg last month. So far, Kuo says Apple would remove the Touch Bar on the 2021 MacBook Pros while Mark Gurman had claimed minor changes.
If the new report is accurate, it will probably make many photographers and videographers smile. Yes, dongles and adapters have gotten better since 2016, but having a built-in card reader and an HDMI port is just so much more practical.
New Updates by apple officials
Apple’s lineup of 2021 MacBook Pros will likely come in two sizes- 14-inch and 16-inch models. Considering the company grabbed a good amount of attraction with its Apple M1 chipset, these models could very well feature upgraded processors.
Either way, Kuo says that Taiwan’s Genesys Logic will be Apple’s exclusive supplier of SD card readers. These two ‘Pro’ models are reportedly set for a launch somewhere in the Second half of 2021. Let’s wait for more details in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Apple is likely to launch new iPad Pro models and AirTags next month.
