Apple could unveil a pair of new MacBook Pros that will have high-resolution screens and bring back one of the tech giant’s most beloved features, a magnetic charger.
The upcoming laptops, widely expected to be revealed later this year, will have resolutions of 3456 x 2234 and 3024 x 1964 for the 14-inch and 16-inch models, MacRumors reports, citing code from the latest macOS Monterey.
This would give both laptops approximately a 226 to 227 pixel per inch density. For comparison, the 13-inch MacBook Pro has a pixel density of 227, while the current 16-inch model has pixel density of 226.
It’s also possible that the new laptops sport the magnetic MagSafe chargers of years past, TF International Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo said earlier this year.

Apple may also include SD card slots and HDMI outputs, along with new processors and new designs.
In July, it was reported that the new MacBook Pro screens would use 10,000 mini-LEDs to allow for higher brightness, deeper blacks and localized backlighting.
