Apple plans to release two miniLED-backlit MacBook Pro products - a 14-inch and a 16-inch - in the second half of 2021, noted the sources. Judging from the supply of miniLED backlighting applications, volume production of the 14-inch MacBook Pro is likely to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021, and the 16-inch model will start in the first quarter of 2022, said the sources.
Additionally, the site notes that Osram Opto will become a new supplier of miniLED for backlighting the MacBook Pro lineup.
We've seen several claims that Apple will unveil the new MacBook Pro at WWDC next week; however, it's unclear if this will happen. There are 4-6 week lead times on the new mini-LED iPad Pro and supply constraints could hold back the availability of a new mini-LED MacBook Pro as well.
