It has long been rumored that Apple will launch a new MacBook Pro, which is expected to happen during the next WWDC 2021. Ahead of the Apple event, the MacBook Pro has now appeared on a Chinese regulatory database site, apparently confirms the start. According to a report by MacRumors , a 16-inch MacBook Pro was listed on a Chinese regulatory database site by Apple vendor Sunwoda Electronic. The listing hints at a model number A2527 and a battery capacity of 8,693mAh / 11.45V.
If this turns out to be true, the new MacBook Pro will have a slightly smaller battery than the current model. This could be attributed to the possibly slimmer design the new Mac is expected to get.
However, this does not mean that the battery life will be affected. The presence of next-generation Apple silicon should help improve battery life.
While other details remain unknown, previous leaks suggest that the 2022 MacBook Pro will likely be available in 14-inch and 16-inch screen sizes. There will be a design change with minimal bezels, and an HDMI port as well as an SD card slot will be included. The new MacBook Pro can also feature MagSafe magnetic charging, which was recently introduced with the iPhone 12 series.
The new MacBook Pro is most likely to launch at WWDC 2021, which corroborates a previous leak that hinted at the summer launch of the new Apple laptop. But since there is no official word on it, we have to take these details carefully and wait for Apple to reveal details on the same.
