The new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air still use a 720p FaceTime camera

Following the Apple Event today, the official technical specifications for the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air have been uploaded to Apple’s website. Unfortunately, the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air will still use the 720p FaceTime HD camera.

Apple did speak at the keynote about some improvements to the FaceTime camera, including the latest image signal processor in the M1 chip, better noise reduction, more natural colouring, and face detection. Apple says that all these new features contribute to better video quality. 

Although the M1 chip is improving the video quality, the actual hardware of the camera is remaining at 720p. This is across the entire new lineup of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

Apple first included the 720p FaceTime HD camera in a MacBook back in 2011. Since then, the only Mac computer to get a quality bump was the iMac Pro in 201, when it received a 1080p FaceTime HD camera. No other Mac computer has received this 1080p camera.
