New Report Claims (Finally) M1X MacBook Pro’s are Coming Before You Die

New paywalled DigiTimes report talks Apple suppliers and more

Jon Prosser

A new DigiTimes paywalled report claims Apple suppliers are gearing up production of the highly-anticipated 2021 MacBook Pro lineup.

Boy, it has been ROUGH lately for us MacBook Pro fans. With rumors of a new redesigned M1X MacBook Pro circulating for quite some time and potential launch dates that’ve come and gone, I feel what Jon Prosser feels most of the time on a daily basis. Blue-balled. Hey! I am trying to do my part, I’ve got a full time job now writing dumb articles like this for YOU. I know that di*k ain’t gonna suck itself and if I don’t do it, there’s a raggedy as* bi*ch who will. I am trying! Take it easy on me.

The report states two Apple suppliers, Zhen Ding Technology and Tripod Technology, have both entered the (chat) supply chain for Apple’s upcoming miniLED-backlit MacBook series, and are both “ramping up their shipments of backlight boards” according to industry sources. With the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros currently scheduled for launch late in the 3rd quarter of 2021, this presumably means September. So, maybe or maybe not before you die. I don’t know your life.

According to DigiTimes, Apple is heavily investing in the production of mini-LED displays. It is unclear whether the company will release the new MacBook Pros alongside the iPhone 13 series, as the flagship iPhone models have always been released in the month of September except for last year due the beer flu (COVID-19) related supply chain delays. However, the iPhone release is expected to return to September for this year. Maybe. Keep yourself alive until then.
