Apple Could Release 16-Inch MacBook Pro In September
Apple is reportedly planning to release a new 16-inch MacBook Pro in September this year.
According to a report from HIS Markit obtained by Forbes, the new laptop will have an LCD screen with a resolution of 3,072 x 1,920 and is said to be getting a processor upgrade as well.
This marks the first time in eight years the company is releasing a laptop with a screen bigger than 15 inches, since the 17-inch MacBook Pro in 2011.
There’s no word of any additional improvements to the system.
“We foresee that Apple will release a new product at the Sep’19 Apple event if there’s no unexpected development issue,” said Jeff Lin, associate director, Consumer Electronics at HIS Markit, told Forbes.
The report seems to confirm TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s announcement back in February that the company would launch a 16-inch model sometime this year.
The report also suggests the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro and last year’s MacBook Air will receive CPU upgrades.
