Apple unveils new MacBook Pro laptops. Here's everything new they bring to the table.

Highlights
  • Apple has refreshed the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models.
  • The new notebooks ship with the latest M1 Pro and M1 Max in-house chipsets.
  • Apple MacBook Pro 14-inch price in Inida starts at Rs 1,94,900, while the 16-inch version begins from Rs 2,39,900.

Apple has refreshed the MacBook Pro lineup with the latest in-house M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets. The new MacBook will be available in two models – 14-inch and 16-inch – and they get a more premium design with flat edges, thanks to ultra-narrow bezels on the front. Like the iPhone, the new MacBook Pro displays get a notch to house a 1080p webcam and other sensors, but no Face ID. Apple has brought back physical function keys that replace the Touch Bar and MagSafe 3.0 for fast charging. The new MacBook Pro models are the first MacBooks to use the mini-LED technology that was originally seen in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro from earlier this year.
