A respected analyst in Apple affairs, Ming-Chi Kuo, said the Cupertino company might be preparing a 16 or 16.5-inch version on the next line of MacBook Pro. In addition, the design may undergo some scrambling.
The well-known analyst released a research note, referring to possible Apple launches in 2019. Indeed, the MacRumors website had access to these predictions and noted one in particular. Apple may also be working on a larger version of MacBook Pro, already mentioned.
The details do not go much beyond the size of 16 or 16.5 inches and a completely renovated design. Now here is a detail that has your interest. The design of the MacBook is something that has taken root, albeit with its developments. Are the apple enthusiasts prepared for a possible radical change?
The MacBook line keyboard needs to be upgraded
The truth is that this new design may actually mean several things. We can have a display with very low margins. That, by itself, would already be excellent. We can have a change on the keyboard – one of the gaps of the latest Macbook and that really needs to be improved.
Indeed, to be released, this would be the MacBook with a bigger screen, since the abandonment of the 17-inch MacBook Pro in 2012. Still, sources close to Apple do not expect major changes in aesthetic terms by the Cupertino company because the last one was only in 2016.
In addition, Kuo says that Apple may release a 32GB version for the 13-inch version of the MacBook Pro. It was also on this note that Apple was able to prepare a 6.6-inch 31.6-inch screen. My secretary would appreciate this. But the wallet certainly does.
In summary, we can expect news on the MacBook Pro line in 2019. Still, we look with a reserve for this news. However, an inch increase at this stage may only mean that engineering will work well in terms of weight and reduced margins.
