Apple’s next MacBook Pro updates may include an upgraded FaceTime camera, with a sleek claim that the webcam will increase in resolution to 1080p.
Apple’s 24-inch iMac includes a 1080p FaceTime camera across the screen, a significant update for a component that has been at 720p for a long time. In the rumors of upcoming MacBook Pro releases for later in 2020, it looks like the MacBook line may get the same upgrade.
According to iOS developer and leaker “@Dylandkt” on Twitter on Saturday, the inbound MacBook Pro will get “an updated enhanced 1080p webcam for the next model, and so will the entire Mac lineup.”
Currently, the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air all use a 720p FaceTime camera. Despite the fact that the M1 MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro seem to be a great option for using a better webcam, Apple decided to continue using its well-established camera.
The next expected releases from Apple are a revamped 14-inch MacBook Pro and a 16-inch MacBook Pro. A June 9 supply chain report suggested that MacBooks should arrive earlier than previously rumored and switch from Q4 2021 and Q1 2022 to Q3 2021, respectively.
Dylandkt has an existing, albeit brief, track record for rumors that correctly predicts the M1’s addition to the iPad Pro. On July 6, the shared account information about the M2 chip will arrive in the first half of 2022 along with a colorful MacBook Air.
