In a recent research note, notorious analyst Min-Chi Kuo told not only about what the next generation of iPhone smartphones was likely to be, but also shared predictions about other Apple-planned "hardware" announcements for this year.
So, according to Min-Chi Kuo’s forecast, apart from the new generation of iPod touch and iPad mini, as well as the updated iPad models with 10.2-inch displays, this year Apple will present the long-awaited “completely rethought” Apple Mac Pro PC with a modular design, "Perfect" mobile PC MacBook Pro, as well as its own monitor with a resolution of 6K, which will mark the company's return to the market of professional displays.
On the new PC Apple Mac Pro, which, as promised itself Apple, will offer users ample opportunities to upgrade the main internal components, we last heard in the spring of last year. The analyst does not provide any new details about the device, only confirming its release later this year.
Also Min-Chi Kuo confirms rumors about Apple returning to the professional monitor market. Recall Apple left the market in 2016, when it discontinued its last external monitor, Thunderbolt Display, 2016. Since then, Mac users, Apple recommends LG UltraFine 5K monitors, which in the past had a lot of problems at the start of sales. According to the analyst, the new Apple monitor will receive a 31.6-inch screen with a resolution of 6K and some Mini LED backlight technology.
But the analyst made the most unexpected forecast with respect to the MacBook Pro notebook line. Min-Chi Kuo is convinced that this year Apple will show the world a “perfect” MacBook Pro, which will receive a huge screen with a diagonal of 16 to 16.5 inches. That is, we are talking about the potential largest Apple laptop since the cessation of sales of the 17-inch model in 2012. In this case, it is impossible not to recall the recently introduced model LG gram 17, which offers a screen with a diagonal of 17 inches with a record small thickness and weight.
The analyst also mentioned the availability of 32 GB of RAM for the 13-inch MacBook Pro model. Now this amount of memory is only available for the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
