Apple will introduce a 1080p webcam to its new MacBook Pro models, according to a new report.

The Cupertino company is widely reported to be working on new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models featuring an M1 or M1X chip, and alongside new internals, it could also upgrade the company’s long-criticized FaceTime HD camera, which has lagged behind other manufacturer’s webcams for many years.

Apple introduced a 1080p webcam to its new 24-inch iMac released earlier this year, and so it might be that the company is planning to bring the new technology to all of its devices in the coming years. The MacBook Air‌ and MacBook Pro models currently sport a 720p camera, and though the actual quality of the image hasn’t changed, the launch of the M1 chip meant that image quality and stabilization was boosted in recent releases.

Dylandkt, who shared news of a new webcam for the new MacBook Pro models, has a proven track record when it comes to Apple insider information He revealed that Apple was working on bringing the M1 chip to the iPad Pro, five months before it did, and days before Apple’s Spring Loaded event, he confirmed the new iMac would sport an M1 chip rather than the much-rumored M1X chip.

He recently revealed that Apple was working on bringing a new M2 chip to a colorful range of MacBook Air models next year, which we have reported about here at AppleMagazine. Time will tell, but it appears likely that the company will introduce a new 1080p camera to its MacBook, and we can’t wait to see it come to life!
