The last time Apple expanded the range of laptops with new diagonals back in 2015 with the announcement of the 12-inch MacBook. According to the Digitimes resource, at the beginning of autumn, the American company will introduce another Pro-version - a 16-inch MacBook Pro with a total redesign. Insiders told some details about the device.
The dimensions of the new model will be comparable to the current 15-inch MacBook Pro, but the display diagonal will be 16 inches. If you believe the rumors, the screen resolution will be 3072x1920 pixels. Suppliers of aluminum cases apparently do not expect major changes in the process. The only difference in the manufacture of 16-inch laptops will be a larger bore of the top cover under the display.
Of the expected structural changes - the emergence of a new generation of the keyboard, which will be a replacement for the “butterfly” that has shown itself not at its best.
According to insiders, Apple will introduce a frameless 16-inch MacBook Pro along with the iPhone XI announcement at the September presentation. But the possibility of a separate event dedicated to the company's laptops, which will be held in October, is not excluded. For example, in September 2018, Apple showed iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and Apple Watch Series 4 in September, and a month later announced the iPad Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini.
Recall that the latest update of the MacBook Pro 15 "took place on May 2019. The company equipped the models with Intel processors of the 9th generation. In early July, Apple released the updated MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
