Asian tech site DigiTimes heard from sources in the supply chain that Apple has started mass production of its new MacBook Pro computers. Monthly production is expected to hit 600,000 to 800,000 units during the period from August to November.

M1X, Mini-LED, MagSafe, and better webcam

The redesigned MacBook Pro laptops with Apple Silicon will be part of Apple's Fall product releases. The systems will feature a more powerful processor than the M1 SoC, and they will have a display with mini-LED technology.

Besides allowing thinner and lighter product design, mini-LED LCDs promise to be a better alternative to OLED. Mini-LED doesn't have burn-in issues and promises deep blacks and excellent HDR. The technique uses a backlight with a massive amount of small LEDs, which results in much smaller dimming zones.

There will be 14" and 16" versions of the new MacBook Pro. It's believed these laptops will use the improved Apple M1X SoC. Other than this, you can expect more ports, a better webcam with Full HD resolution, and the return of MagSafe charging.
