In this week’s top stories: Rumors and hopes of a MacBook Pro, Warren Buffett’s $ 18 billion AAPL mistake, Apple’s efforts to grow outside of Silicon Valley, and more. Read on for all of this week’s top stories and more.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reported this week that Apple is still on track to release a redesigned MacBook Pro with mini LED display technology this year. Analysts also report that Apple will release a new MacBook Air with display technology in 2022.
A separate report this week also confirmed that the redesigned MacBook Pro will drop the Touch Bar, possibly in favor of a line of traditional function keys. Check out our full information here on what to expect from Apple’s new MacBook Pro.
Apple + Silicon Valley
Bloomberg reported this week that Apple wants to grow rapidly outside of Silicon Valley because of the struggle to recruit and retain talent. The report also shows that Apple has sought to diversify its workforce because of its focus on Silicon Valley.
Apple has “lost talent” because of the high cost of living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Bloomberg reported. “Many engineers lament that they are unable to balance living expenses with other jobs such as college tuition for their children and long-term savings,” the report said.
A supply chain report on Monday of this week suggested that the iPhone 2021 will actually be called the iPhone 13 instead of the iPhone 12S.
Apple’s new iPhone this year has entered a stockpile stage, and the supply chain has reported that this year’s new phone will be named the iPhone 13.
As always, check out our complete guide here for the latest information on iPhone 13 rumors and expectations.
