As per the statement in the newsletter, “A faster 13-inch MacBook Pro had also been planned to launch around the same time as the new Air, but those same lockdowns in China could have thrown off that part of the road map as well. When that machine does launch, expect it to look the same as the current 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2020 sans the Touch Bar.” Also Read - Captain America Chris Evans says goodbye to his iPhone 6s with a touching tribute
