    The tech giant Apple is planning to roll out 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro with radial redesigns to current models, in September this year.

    As per Mashable India, the new devices will be quite a radical redesign of current models, especially the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which is likely to be replaced with the 14-inch variant. The new devices are expected to have new, 'Mini-LED' displays and a faster processor with the first successor to Apple's M1 chip.

    Reportedly, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is currently being shipped with an Intel chip, which is expected to change in the future, as Apple plans to completely "switch to its own silicon in the future".

    The new devices could prove to be the most powerful laptop in the company's lineup, meaning that it would require a significantly more powerful chip than Apple's M1, which supports a maximum of 16GB of RAM and only one additional, high-resolution display, reported Mashable India.

    Excitingly, the new MacBook Pro models are rumoured to come with a new, flat-edged design, as well as more ports, including a memory card reader and HDMI. 

    We have previously reported that this year's MacBook Pro models could feature a new M1X chipset, an improved version of the powerful in-house M1 processor that has left its rivals far behind since its launch last year. The upcoming models are expected to come with more CPU and GPU cores too, but it remains to be seen whether the new MacBook Pro models will have the same power efficiency as the company's current models.
