There’s a lot to celebrate on the outside of the newest MacBook Pro models, like the return of reasonable ports and MagSafe power. But tearing down the 14-inch and 16-inch models, there were quite a few changes inside, too. With reasonable room to work inside, Apple’s engineers could fit in smarter battery adhesive, easier display connections, and oh so much silicon.
If you want a visual reminder of what you’re working with, these 2021 MacBook Pro wallpapers will give you see-through powers—just at roughly 90 degrees, instead of straight-through. It can help you justify the cost of those thousands of bits under your fingers. It can spur creativity, as you ponder the connections between power, processing, heat, and exhaust. Or it can kinda look like a curious owl, greeting you whenever you minimize your windows.
