The network continues to accumulate details about the new line of laptops that Apple is preparing for release, including high-end models. Apparently, Apple has decided to go back to basics and revive the favorite features of the MacBook Pro, as well as abandon bad decisions.
Earlier it was reported that the legendary MagSafe magnetic charger will return in the new generation of MacBook Pro and additional connectors will appear. At the same time, Apple decided to abandon the Touch Bar with an OLED display, replacing it with more familiar hardware function keys.
Now Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman has expanded on analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s predictions from last week. According to the source, the next generation MacBook Pro will be a good example of Apple’s new policy of targeting loyal Mac users.
One such step towards the well-deserved fans will be the emergence of a card reader with support for SD cards. The card reader disappeared from Apple laptops in 2016, at the same time Apple began to get rid of MagSafe. The disappeared card reader has left professional photographers and video users alike, a key segment of the MacBook Pro user base, as Gurman points out.
Note that Mark Gurman has a solid track record of leaking Apple products over the years. Last year, for example, he unveiled the iPhone 12 lineup long before the announcement, and in 2019 the iPhone 11.
