Apple may have accidentally revealed the screen resolution of its upcoming MacBook Pro notebook computer in the beta version of the upcoming macOS Monterey operating system. If this information is correct, the new 14-inch and 16-inch display MacBook Pro will have a higher resolution than any current Apple monitor, but perhaps more importantly, they will have a different aspect ratio.
According to reports, Apple’s macOS Monterey beta 7 lists two retina displays, the resolutions of which are currently not supported by any Apple retina displays, which may mean that these resolutions will appear in the ones that are expected to be released in October or November. In the upcoming MacBook Pro. Mike Rumor.
Assuming that the operating system does not list the resolutions supported in the distant future, the new MacBook Pro 14 will provide a native resolution of 3024 × 1964, and the next-generation MacBook Pro 16 will have a native resolution of 3456 × 2234. Both LCDs will provide a pixel density of 257 pixels per inch (PPI), which is higher than the 227 PPI of today’s MacBook Pro.
Although it’s nice to see that Apple may release a MacBook Pro with a higher native resolution (remember, the laptops shipped by Apple have reduced the resolution by default to make everything look bigger and smoother), but more importantly Yes, it is possible that the next generation MacBook Pro will use a 14:9 (1.56:1) aspect ratio, which is very different from today’s 16:9.
This new possible aspect ratio means two things. First of all, if it is true, the design of the new MacBook Pro must be very different from all the laptops Apple has released in recent years.This is supported Rumors in July We will see the redesigned MacBook Pro in the third quarter of this year. Secondly, these new laptops may require Apple to use new backlight technology, which may be why Apple chose LCD panels with Mini LED backlights in the rumor in July.
The aspect ratio of 14:9 is very close 3:2 (1.5:1) aspect ratio Multi-productive laptop monitors have begun to like today. This aspect ratio displays more data vertically, which is very useful for encoding, reading, and writing, but may not be ideal for multitasking across different windows. According to reports, the reason why Apple chose a slightly wider aspect ratio of 14:9 may be to solve this imbalance.
But at the same time, 14:9 and 3:2 aspect ratio monitors are not suitable for viewing content shot for a 16:9 screen (think TV content) because they can produce noticeable black bars. In addition, those who like to watch movies made for movie theaters (with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1 or 2.39:1) will see larger black bars on these displays.
At the very least, using an LCD with Mini LED backlight should slightly alleviate the black bar problem by allowing the picture to be bright but turning off the backlight on the black bar.
However, there may be some hope for watching content. Those who have access to content produced in the IMAX format (1.43:1) may find it more interesting on 14:9 and 3:2 displays.
Apple will not comment on unreleased products, so we don’t know whether the upcoming MacBook Pro notebooks will actually be equipped with a 14:9 aspect ratio and Mini LED backlit display. However, if the rumors are correct, the wait will end in a few weeks.
