It has been several years since Apple discontinued the 17-inch MacBook Pro, leaving users with only the 15-inch model as the biggest one that they can buy. However, there is no doubt that there are some who miss the 17-inch model and might have been excited at the possibility that it might return later this year.
Unfortunately, it seems that may no longer happen. This is according to popular Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who claims that Apple’s larger MacBook Pro might only arrive in 2021. According to Kuo, he claims that the larger MacBook Pro might skip this year and launch in 2021 where it could use a micro-LED display.
Apple’s laptops still use LCD but to be fair, the company’s MacBook Pros do have pretty bright and beautiful displays according to many reviewers, so it is possible that the 17-inch model could be aimed at users who might require a better display, maybe for video or photo editing purposes.
Previously Kuo had stated that the larger MacBook might be a 16-inch model, but now he suggests that it could go up to 17-inches. Take it with a pinch of salt for now, but if you were hoping for a larger MacBook Pro this year, you might be disappointed.
