If you’ve been paying even a sliver of attention to the technology world this week, you probably know that Apple just launched its colorful new iMac, powered by the M1 chip. However, one of Apple’s best Macs has been waiting for an update for nearly two years now – the 16-inch MacBook Pro

Since it got the major redesign in 2019, the only update this laptop has seen was a minor GPU bump in 2020, but using the same Intel processor. And now that Apple has its own processors, it’s unlikely that we’re going to get a quick 11th-generation Intel CPU upgrade – Apple’s going to want to shove its own silicon in there. 

But with the Apple M1 launching relatively recently in November 2020, when can we reasonably expect a more powerful follow-up that can sustain the beefier workloads that the 16-inch MacBook Pro supports? Well, we think it might be WWDC 2021 in June 2021.

Isn’t that a bit soon?
