A leaker who goes by the name “Dylandkt” claims that Apple’s upcoming revamped 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will boast an upgraded 1080p webcam, which will be a step up from the current 720p “FaceTime HD” camera found on the MacBook Pro.
The leaker tweeted that the upcoming 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros will be receiving “an updated, improved 1080p webcam” alongside the “entire Mac lineup.” Apple’s 24-inch iMac does feature a 1080p webcam. However, the current MacBook Air and MacBook Pro both feature a 720p camera.
“Dylandkt” has leaked accurate information in the past, as back in November 2020, he said Apple would bring the M1 chip to its next-generation iPad. Apple in April of this year announced that its new iPad Pro would be powered by its M1 Apple Silicon chip.
A few days before April’s Apple “Spring Loaded” event, the leaker also tweeted that the upcoming new iMac would be powered by the M1 chip and no an upgraded “M1X” version of the chip. This proved to be true.
The account recently tweeted that Apple’s “M2” chip will power an updated MacBook Air next year. The account also claimed that the “M1X” chip is being reserved for high-end “Pro” Macs.
Last Friday, Apple industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple is still on schedule to begin mass production of its upcoming revamped 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with mini-LED displays in the third quarter of 2021.
