Last week, Apple unveiled its newest iPhones and a pair of updated iPads, but the company may not end there. Apple is also expected to announce a new batch of MacBook Pros in the near future, and today we can learn more about the displays of these new computers. Some mentions found in the latest macOS Monterey beta suggest that the next MacBook Pro might get a higher resolution.
These references were discovered by MacRumors, and they list two display resolutions not found on any of Apple's current products. What's more, MacRumors notes that these resolutions are not associated with any of the previous devices, suggesting that these are display resolutions for future devices - possibly the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro.
The resolutions in question are "3024 x 1964 Retina" and "3456 x 2234 Retina". There are no other references to these entries, so it's impossible to say exactly which MacBook models they're for. However, when it comes to the new M1X-based 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, MacRumors notes that they will allow 2x Retina as the native resolution for each model, which in turn means that they will offer clearer images than their predecessors.
When to Expect
Apparently, last week's iPhone announcement event passed without any mention of the new MacBook Pro, which isn't surprising. Apple doesn't usually announce MacBooks and iPhones at the same time, so Apple is expected to show off the new MacBooks at a separate event this fall.
