Apple MacBook Pros will host three new “M4” processors by the end of 2024

For once, Apple has introduced the fourth iteration of its “in-house” SoC in the iPad Pro. The Cupertino company logically foresees a flow towards its MacBooks, but not only, all Macs should ultimately benefit from an Apple Silicon M4.

The first to be served will logically be the MacBook Pros, which previously benefited from the M3 in October 2023. An M3 with developments far too timid to push buyers to renew their old Apple computer.

Thus, the 14 and 16 inch MacBook Pros should accommodate the M4, M4 Pro and M4 Max by the end of the year in order to support the release of macOS Sequoia and its new features linked to artificial intelligence… Sorry, Apple Intelligence.

A thinner chassis

According to the latest rumors, the MacBook Pro (2024) should benefit from a slimming treatment, just like the iPad, Apple having decided to refine all of its products in the absence of taking advantage of real technological new features. A little more finesse would indeed be welcome, the 14-inch MacBook Pro rising to 1.55 cm and the 16-inch MacBook Pro to 1.68 cm.

A bigger battery

It is also rumored that the MacBook Pros will accommodate a larger battery, at least for the 14-inch which currently has a 70 Wh battery in M3 and 72.4 Wh for the M3 Pro and M3 Max models. With the 16-inch already at the legal limit of 100 Wh, this increase in capacity could be a bad omen regarding the consumption of the M4, but let's hope that Apple will simply want to increase the already significant autonomy of the MacBook Pro.

Still no Oled or wifi 7?

Another idea that is gaining ground is the integration of Oled panels by Apple into its MacBooks. If the technology has been widely adopted by Asus and Samsung, the fruity firm is more timid. In question, Samsung Display which would prefer to supply manufacturers of Windows PCs rather than macOS machines.

Quid wifi 7 in MacBooks? The wireless standard, which is 4.8 times faster than the previous generation and allows speeds of more than 3 Gb/s to be achieved, would not be expected before 2025 at Apple. The M4 MacBook Pros should therefore not have the first of these.

The rest of the Mac range would likely be updated in 2025 with the Apple M4 processor, the MacBook Air could potentially benefit from the M4 and wifi 7.
