My thoughts on the M1 Mac release schedule in 2021

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple will release new redesigned Mac laptops in the second half of 2021. He didn’t specify which models they would be.

The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) thinks that — as Kuo has predicted in the past — a 14-inch MacBook Pro and a 16-inch MacBook Pro with, of course, the M1 processor. However I think we’ll see at least the former, along with a 24-inch M1 iMac, a redesigned 13-inch MacBook Air,  and a redesigned 13-inch MacBook Pro in the FIRST half of next year. The 16-inch MacBook Pro and 32-inch M1 iMac will, per my crystal ball, appear in the second half of 2021.

By the way, Kuo is also predicting a form factor redesign for the Apple Watch in the second half of 2021.
