A new report says that shipments of Apple's rumored upcoming MacBook Pro range may not begin until Q3 of 2021, following reports it could be unveiled at WWDC.
The paywalled report seems to indicate the new MacBook Pro range will not be released until later this year. Recent leaks from Jon Prosser have previously stated Apple will announce the new MacBook Pro at WWDC.
A recent Bloomberg report claims the MacBook will have a 10-core Apple silicon chip that could support up to 64GB of RAM:
As that report notes Apple has reportedly redesigned the new MacBook, adding HDMI and SD ports as well as removing the Touch Bar. The leak seems to suggest a new generation of Apple silicon is on the way bringing with it a huge performance boost. Other rumors suggest the new MacBook could feature colors like the recently-released M1 iMac.
