It’s been rumoured for a while, but Apple fans may have just got more information about the next addition to the MacBook family. The US technology firm updated its 15-inch model late last year with smaller bezels to accommodate a bigger screen and improved keyboard. Now it seems the same upgrade could be coming to the 13-inch MacBook.
According to a new report from reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, via MacRumours, the new MacBook will arrive packing a 14.1-inch screen in its aluminium body. If true, this new machine could follow the 16-inch version with smaller bezels allowing Apple to cram a larger screen into the device without making the overall physical footprint all that bigger.
It’s also likely the new laptop will ditch the controversial butterfly-mechanism keyboard in favour of the improved Magic Keyboard, which offers better travel and a more robust design. Crucially, the latter hasn’t seen any of the reliability issues that plagued the slim-profile Butterfly designs for years since its first introduction back in 2015.
If the new MacBook follows in the footsteps of the 16-inch model, you can also expect more power from a newer processor, better battery life, and belting sound from the latest stereo speakers.
