The new MacBook Pro 2021 could sport a display notch allowing for expansive screens without the need to give up the webcam. The rumor comes just before the Apple event, where Apple is expected to unveil two new models in the lineup.
According to tomsguide, this rumor-meets-leak was given some more credence from an Apple USPTO patent that contains sketches and notes demonstrating how a notch could be implemented into an Apple laptop.

2021 Mac Book Pro
Ever since the MacBook Pro line made significant departures from its winning formula with the introduction of the Touch Bar and the removal of MagSafe charging, people have been clamoring for a return to form.
Last year’s M1-powered MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro were a step in the right direction as was the revised M1 Mac Mini but there’s still room to revitalize the “Pro” in MacBook Pro.
The rumors have been widespread that Apple will be refreshing its 16-inch MacBook Pro with its own silicon and that a new 14-inch MacBook Pro will be the proper successor to the old 13-inch models long left behind with their MagSafe plugs, SD card slots, and an array of versatile I/O.
With new MacBook Pros might also come a new, super-powered Mac Mini that sports a revised design, as well as a third generation of the standard AirPods.
Date of Apple’s Next Event
The Apple event is scheduled for Monday, October 18th, at 1PM ET / 10AM PT.
Another hint that the notch rumor might be accurate comes from the macOS Monterey beta, where MacRumors spotted resolutions of 3,024 x 1,964 for the upcoming 14-inch MacBook Pro and 3,456 x 2,234 for the 16-inch model.
So what? Well, if you subtract 74 pixels from the height of each, you end up with the same 16:10 aspect ratio that’s present on all of Apple’s other current MacBooks. That means that the extra 74 pixels could account for the new notch.
A completed transition
If Apple announces new MacBook laptops on Monday, it will be the culmination of a two-year transition to completely revamp the entire Mac lineup.
Since 2019, Apple has been replacing Intel processors inside Macs with its own processors, called M1, which provide longer battery life and allow Apple to more tightly integrate its hardware and software. Apple’s chips also enable new features while still providing enough power to run demanding applications.
So far, Apple has released four different Macs using its new chips: The MacBook Air, the Mac Mini, the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the redesigned 24-inch iMac.
Apple is likely to emphasize the advantages of its own chip, as it has done during the past several Mac launch events. Expect a new name for the M1 chip if Apple makes significant performance improvements. It could call it the M1X or M2, depending on how Apple wants to market the processor improvements.
Apple Prepping a Redesign
Apple has reportedly been prepping a redesign for its high-end MacBook Pros with its own chips and new ports, including space for an HDMI cable to connect the laptop to monitors, and a magnetic charger, according to Bloomberg.
Also in the works is an iMac with a bigger screen and a Mac Mini desktop with more power, according to the report. Today Monday, Apple is also likely to provide a release date for macOS Monterey, the latest version of the Mac software, which was announced in June but has not yet been officially released.
