Prosser didn't offer any additional details about the models, but his tweet comes on the heels of a Bloomberg report that new MacBook Pro models could arrive as soon as the summer.
Apple is reportedly working on a 14-inch MacBook Pro and a 16-inch MacBook Pro that could be offered with two processor options. Both processors will feature eight high-performance cores and two energy-efficient cores. The 10-core processors could also include 16 or 32 graphic options. They may support up to 64GB of unified RAM.
In addition, the new MacBook Pro models are also rumored to bring back a wider variety of port options. According to the latest rumors, they'll include a new MagSafe charging port, as well as an HDMI port and an SD card slot.
According to TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new MacBook Pro models are slated to enter production into the second half of the year.
Apple doesn't typically unveil new hardware at WWDC 2021, but it has announced Mac models at the software-focused event in the past.
Apple officially announced the schedule for WWDC 2021 on Monday.
WWDC 2021 kicks off with a keynote address at 10 a.m. Pacific, 1 p.m. Eastern on Monday, June 7.
