In the latest beta of macOS Monterey, we can see two new screen definitions that do not correspond to any existing Apple machine.
While the new iPhone 13 have just arrived at the first customers, Apple still has new surprises in store for us by the end of the year. These include the launch of new third-generation AirPods, but also a new batch of MacBook Pros with Apple Silicon chips.
Rumours are spreading on the web
According to the latest rumors, these machines could be unveiled at a new conference to be held in October. There would be two models, one with a 14-inch screen, and the other with a 16-inch slab. We would also benefit from a brand new chassis incorporating missing ports such as an SD card reader and a MagSafe.
Now these new MacBook Pros are back in the news, this time from a particularly reliable source: Apple. In the latest beta of macOS Monterey, the next version of the Mac operating system, the MacRumors site has spotted two new machines. Or rather, two new screen definitions for Apple computers.
There are references to “3,024 x 1,964 Retina” and “3,456 x 2,234 Retina” screens, which will certainly correspond to the future 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros respectively. For comparison, the current 13-inch MacBook Pro has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,600 pixels and the 16-inch model has a 3,072 x 1,920 pixel display. So we can expect a slightly higher resolution, but that shouldn’t transform the visual experience compared to the current machines either.
