Apple could unveil a pair of new MacBook Pros with high-resolution displays and one of the tech giant’s most beloved features, a magnetic charger.
The upcoming laptops, widely expected to be unveiled 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 a density of about 226 to 227 pixels per inch. In comparison, the 13-inch MacBook Pro has a pixel density of 227, while the current 16-inch model has a pixel density of 226.
It’s also possible that the new laptops will have the magnetic MagSafe chargers of recent years, TF International Securities analyst Ming-chi Kuo said earlier this year.

The MagSafe chargers allow the computer to be charged and if someone accidentally trips over the cord, the charger will be pulled out of the laptop leaving the computer untouched.
The tech giant could release the new MacBook Pro laptops between October and November, having unveiled its new iPhone, Apple Watch and iPad mini earlier this month.
Bloomberg also reported in January that Apple would bring back magnetic charging to upgraded MacBook Pros.
Apple may also add SD card slots and HDMI outputs, along with new processors and new designs.
In July, it was reported that the new MacBook Pro displays would use 10,000 mini-LEDs to enable higher brightness, deeper blacks and localized backlighting.
The new screen, which Apple calls Liquid Retina XDR display, is already available on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, which was released in April.

Apple is also reportedly working on a new MacBook Air, Mac Pro, iMac and updated Mac Mini.
Led by CEO Tim Cook, Apple has seen Mac sales surge over the past 12 months as many employees work from home during the pandemic, resulting in a new one for new equipment.
In the company most recent quarter, Mac sales came in at $8.2 billion, up 16.3 percent year-over-year.
That accounted for nearly 10 percent of Apple’s total quarterly revenue during the period.
