Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro Rumored To Launch This Fall

Rumors were swirling in February of this year from noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that Apple would be launching a new display this year along with a new 16-inch MacBook Pro. The display launch happened, but the 16-inch MacBook Pro was absent from the event that did bring some updated Macs.

A new rumor is going around that Apple is launching a 16-inch MacBook Pro this year, and this new information is based on an industry report from IHS Market. The report claims that Apple will launch a 16-inch MacBook Pro that has a screen resolution of 3072 x 1920, up from the 2880 x 1800 resolution screen offered in the 15-inch MacBook. The same updated keyboard and newer 9th gen Intel processors are expected to turn up in the 16-inch notebook.

Pricing is tipped to start at around $3,000 for the new machine. According to IHS Market, the machine is set to launch in September and have a production rate of 250,000 units per month. One important point is that IHS Market says that the display on this MacBook will be an LCD manufactured by LG Display; there had been recent rumors that Apple would change to an OLED.

Previous reports have pegged the 16-inch MacBook Pro to bring a whole new design to market. IHS Market's report also claims that the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the Retina MacBook Air will get minor spec bumps at the same time the 16-inch notebook debuts. Kuo's report from earlier this year suggested that the 13-inch MacBook Pro would see a spec bump and an option of 32GB of RAM. The September notebook launch is also tipped to coincide with the launch of the new macOS Catalina operating system.
