Light guide plate supplier Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) will kick off its shipments for Apple's new-generation mini LED-backlit MacBook Pro series in the third quarter of 2021, according to industry sources.

This is not the first time that we are hearing of the redesigned MacBook models. We have heard in the past few months that Apple is working on a 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro model which will house its custom chips. Other than this, each model will feature Apple's mini-LED technology for better contrast and color accuracy. The notebooks are expected to feature a new design with minimal bezels.

In terms of ports, the new MacBook Pro models will include an HDMI port, a magnetic power cable. Furthermore, Apple is also expected to let go of the Touch Bar in favor of the physical function keys. As mentioned earlier, Apple might potentially release the new MacBook Pro models with mini-LED displays later this year. However, Jon Prosser also claims that Apple will announce one model at its WWDC event this year which will take place on June 7.
