Apple has always paid special attention to the designs of its products. Of course, the result is not always a success, some attempts disappearing as soon as the next generation. The next generation of Apple MacBook Pro should introduce a brand new design, and this one would borrow from the iPad in particular.
The design of the new MacBook Pro borrowed from the iPad Pro
The current design of Apple’s MacBook is quite old, it must be admitted. It’s one of the most robust designs, which has proven itself for many years, there’s nothing, or almost nothing, to criticize, but we must admit that it’s time to change. We’ve heard several rumors suggesting that a brand new design is on the way. Today, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo unveils some of the details of this novelty.
According to Apple’s well-known ecosystem analyst, the new MacBook Pro design borrows some aspects from the iPad Pro. Specifically, the “flatter” look, which should help the device look more like the iPad Pro and the new iPhone. Indeed, both have moved from frames with curved edges to flat edges.
And would offer more ports!
Ming-Chi Kuo also claims that the Cupertino firm will introduce more ports, but without going into details. At the moment, Apple has virtually eliminated all ports, leaving only one USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port, and the only other port present on the machine is a 3.5 mm jack socket for a headset. As a result, many users now have to use dongles and other USB hubs to manage their various accessories.
It’s hard to know if Ming-Chi is talking about the possibility of seeing the return of USB-A ports and/or a memory card reader or if it’s just a matter of adding more USB-C ports. We’ll have to wait and see. A previous report from Bloomberg seemed to suggest that the MagSafe charging system could make its big comeback on this new-generation MacBook Pro. In any case, this is a very promising model. To be continued!
