In a research note obtained by MacRumors, analyst Ming Chi-Kuo – another almost infallible Apple tipster – corroborated the latest report from Mark Gurman, agreeing that the 2021 MacBook Pro models will come with an SD reader, new flat-edge design, and HDMI port. Yes, this is another course-correction. Dropped from the October 2018 redesign, the HDMI port is used to connect to external displays, such as monitors and TVs. While a number of newer external displays include a USB-C port for direct connection and, of course, there are no shortage of USB-C to HDMI dongles, HDMI is still the dominant port for connecting to external displays and projectors.
For those who use their MacBook Pro to present on a regular basis, like lecturers or a consultant, the ability to plug into a screen without carrying around a dongle would be a huge plus.
Unfortunately, neither Ming Chi-Kuo nor Mark Gurman have a definitive release date for the upcoming MacBook Pro redesign. Both agree it will be this year, but there’s no telling whether you’ll need to wait a few weeks, or a few months, to get your hands on one. Apple will hold its annual developer conference, WWDC, next month. In the past, Apple has used the opening keynote to unveil new hardware, including MacBooks, so it’s possible an announcement could be right around the corner.
