Apple is set to announce the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro at the ‘Unleashed’ event on October 18th. On the eve of this, a new data leak explained in detail some of the changes that new MacBooks will pack.
Leaker @dylandkt has a relatively accurate record in terms of information leaks from Apple. He claims that the 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro will have mini-LED screens with smaller frames and no “MacBook Pro” logo on the lower chin. It will also have a 1080p FaceTime HD camera that should bring a significant improvement in video call quality, especially if paired with ISP-related enhancements that the M1X chip should bring to the table.
In terms of specs, the base model of the redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro will have 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. The M1X chip that powers both models will also have the same number of CPU and GPU cores.
MacBook Pro 14 and 16:
Mini LED screens
Smaller frames without a logo on the bottom
The base models will have 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage space
The M1X base is the same configuration for both models
Prices will be similar between 14 and 16 inches
New filling brick

In addition, Apple will introduce a new charging brick with its upcoming MacBooks. Rumors suggest that we might see a MagSafe-based charging solution on the new MacBook Pros. It’s possible that Apple could use a charging brick similar to the one we saw on the 24-inch iMac earlier this year, with a built-in Ethernet port.
In terms of pricing, Dylan believes the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models will have similar pricing, with their screen size being the only difference. Apple seems to be planning to follow the iPhone Pro and Pro Max strategy for its new MacBooks: offer the same level of performance and key features, and the screen and battery life are the key differences between the two models.
Take a look at our set of information leaks to get an overview of what to expect from the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro.
