Óscar Gutiérrez/CNET

A new investor note from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts two new MacBook Pros will launch in 2021, followed by the release of a more affordable MacBook Air in 2022, 9to5Mac reported Wednesday. The devices are all predicted to use new mini-LED panels, a burnout-resistant improvement to Apple’s LCD screen-lighting technology. The analysis also predicts “two or three” new chargers in 2021, and doubles down on Kuo’s previous estimate of mini-LED unit shipments released in an earlier report. 

In November, Kuo predicted that Apple would release the next generation of MacBook and Apple Watches in the second half of 2021, and that the iPad Air would be given 5G connectivity next year too, as well as a mini-LED display. In the same report, he also said he expect the AirPods 3 launch to be delayed from early next year until April or June. Kuo’s latest analysis revised that

Apple Cyber Week deals: MacBook, Apple Watch, AirPods, more

Black Friday has passed, and we’ve now moved on to Cyber Week — a time when retailers are still offering promotions on various tech products. Overall, deals have been ready for a lot longer this year they in previous years, thanks to the pandemic. 

Apple products, in general, don’t typically receive huge discounts, even during the holidays. However, this year, we’re seeing some deals on Apple products ranging from MacBooks to iPads and Apple Watches to AirPods. Apple’s new iPhone 12 models are also on sale, but the deals depend on your wireless carrier and hinge a lot of the time on if you’re willing to switch to a competitor. Below are some of the best deals on Apple products we could find.

Two MacBook Pro models getting mini LED in 2021, MacBook Air in 2022 says Kuo

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that as part of Apple’s mini LED push, the company will release a pair of new MacBook Pro models in 2021 with the technology — and a “more affordable” MacBook Air in 2022.

In a note to investors, seen by AppleInsider, Ming-Chi Kuo is refining his predictions for Apple’s use of mini LED technology in the Mac. Specifically, he predicts that the long-rumored 14-inch MacBook Pro with a redesigned chassis will arrive in 2021 alongside another model. Perhaps more notably, Kuo is also expecting a new and “more affordable” MacBook Air in 2022 — but he didn’t comment on the possibility of an enclosure redesign of that model.

Mini LED is, as the name suggests, a very small LED component. While current LEDs are used for backlighting systems, they typically rely on a small number of LEDs lighting up a larger area. Mini LED
