One leaker claims that Apple’s upcoming MacBook Pro upgrades would have an improved FaceTime camera, with the webcam’s quality increasing to 1080p.
Apple’s 24-inch iMac sports a 1080p FaceTime camera mounted above the display, which is a significant upgrade for a component that has been stuck at 720p for a long time. It appears that the MacBook series will receive the similar update in the expected future MacBook Pro launches later in 2020.
The incoming MacBook Pro will get “an upgraded better 1080p webcam for the next generation and so will the whole Mac range,” according to iOS developer and leaker “Dylandkt” on Twitter on Saturday.
The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air both have a 720p FaceTime camera right now. Despite the fact that the M1 MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro appear to be ideal candidates for a better webcam, Apple chose to stick with its tried-and-true camera.
Apple is likely to unveil a redesigned 14-inch MacBook Pro and a 16-inch MacBook Pro in the near future. According to a June 9 supply chain report, the MacBooks will arrive sooner than previously expected, in Q3 2021 instead of Q4 2021 and Q1 2022.
