In the wake of the global pandemic we’ve all been through, we’re now much more familiar with our webcams than ever before – and the latest rumor around the next 14in and 16inches Macbook Pro Refresh is that the built-in FaceTime camera will finally get an upgrade to 720p.
This is according to the prognosticator @dylandkt on Twitter, which has a strong track record with leaks in the past. After the new and improved camera arrives on the MacBook Pros, it will come to all other models in the Mac lineup, according to the same source.
While nothing is official yet, the rumor is certainly plausible: MacBooks and iMacs have been stuck with 720p quality webcams for several years at this point, and one of the notable upgrades on the new 24-inch iMac launched by Apple in April.
Apple knows webcams are more important than ever in a modern computer, so it only makes sense that the quality of the FaceTime camera has improved. Last year the Macbook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro have been updated with the new M1 chip, but no changes have been made to the camera.
I know a lot of people refer to Linus’ video (which is a great video by the way), but it’s worth noting that the upcoming MacBook Pro will actually get an improved and updated 1080p webcam for the next model. , as well as the entire Mac range.July 10, 2021
There has been some debate on when the next MacBook Pro refresh might take place, but only yesterday. we heard that these new laptops would actually make their debut in 2021, according to one of the industry’s most trusted analysts.
When Apple computers make their appearance, we expect them to come with the new and improved Apple M1X chip inside. It will then be closely followed by the M2 chip, which could well make his debut in the 2022 edition of the MacBook Air.
We don’t expect many changes in the design of the incoming laptops, although rumors are that the Touch Bar will be slowly pulled out of the door. There has also been speculation that we’ll see a few more ports added to the mix, which would add to the appeal of newer laptops if they didn’t impact size and weight.
While an upgraded 1080p FaceTime camera might not convince anyone to upgrade to the new MacBook Pro on their own, it would certainly be a welcome improvement in one key area, on a laptop that’s already excellent the way it is.
