Apple could unveil its 16-inch MacBook Pro in September
Apple recently unveiled two new MacBook Pro devices, a 13-inch and a 15-inch one so many of us thought that the 16-inch MacBook Pro that was the object of many rumors will not arrive this year after all. Now, it seems that the launch of the 16-inch MacBook Pro is not quite that impossible anymore and Apple could actually unveil it at its September 19 event. The information comes from Jeff Lin, Associate Director, Consumer Electronics at IHS Markit, who is confident that “Apple will release a new product [at the] Sep’19 Apple event if there’s no unexpected development issue,” and that this particular product will be the 16-inch laptop.
Rumors also suggested that the 16-inch device will sport an OLED display. Unfortunately, this might prove to be inaccurate after all. Instead of an OLED screen, the 16-inch MacBook Pro will probably come with an LG LCD display. Of course, this will still be an awesome screen, however, it won’t be quite as beautiful as an OLED one would have been. Besides the new display size, the upcoming MacBook Pro will also have a new operating system, the Mac OS Catalina, and a new, more powerful CPU.
Many thought before that the 16-inch device will not be larger than the 15.6-inch MacBook Pro. This means that the design will change a bit and the bezels of the new MacBook Pro will be really thin, almost inexistent. A larger battery would also be a nice change, as laptops never seem to have just enough energy in them to allow us to do everything we want to without needing to plug them in. Current MacBook Pro devices still come with the same graphics cards their predecessors did, so a change in this section would also be welcome.
All the information regarding the 16-inch MacBook Pro should be considered a rumor right now. No one besides Apple can know for sure what the company has prepared for us, so we will have to wait a little longer to find out more about the matter. However, if the company chooses to launch such a device in September we will certainly find out about it at least a few weeks before as nowadays it seems impossible to keep anything a secret in the tech world.
