Apple will be releasing new MacBooks starting 2021, all with Apple Silicon and mini-LED displays. Two redesigned MacBook Pros will reportedly come out next year while a new MacBook Air will be released in 2022.

This was the revelation made by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, someone who has accurately shared leaks about Apple products. Kuo made the revelations in a recent research note to investors that were seen by Mac Rumors.

The two new MacBook Pros set to come out in 2021 will sport new form factor designs. This would finally set the records straight on what to expect from the new MacBooks. As mentioned in a previous report, it was mentioned that the next batch of notebooks could be a mix of Intel and Silicon backed models. This was the claim of another Apple leaker, L0vetodream.

This is despite concerns that Apple announced that it will take more time for them before they can completely transition to their Silicon chipset. The Cupertino company announced at WWDC.

But it appears there has been a change in plans. Kuo suggests that Apple can offset the increased cost of using mini-LED panels, mainly because the cost of Apple Silicon chips are lower compared to Intel processors.

The two redesigned MacBook Pros should set the tone on what to expect on the MacBook Air in 2022. It is said to be an affordable model for consumers to consider.

Tied up to that, shipments of Apple devices with mini-LED displays are expected to be higher according to Kuo. Per TFI securities, the shipment forecasts were revised by 350 percent for 2021 and 450 percent in 2022. About 10 to 12 million mini-LED devices in 2021 and 25 to 28 million mini-LED devices are forecasted to be shipped by Apple in 2022.

A big reason behind the new estimates is due to the lower than expected costs for mini-LED components in the coming years as well as the faster adoption of mini-LED panels in MacBook units.

Apple units that are running under the new chip have been doing well. It is a start and a big shift is coming if these revelations of Kuo are spot on.
