Apple prepares the new MacBook Pro, 16-inch screen and "all-new" design
According to a new report, the Apple laptop will change shape after more than seven years
Time of novelty at Apple and this time the protagonist will be the MacBook Pro, after the renewal of the MacBook Air (here the review of the last ones released ). According to Ming-Chi Kuo, one of the leading experts on Apple's anticipations, the handset coming out in this 2019 will have a 16 or 16.5 inch display . A particular format, little used in the sector. Especially in recent years, Apple has stabilized on the double thumbwheel 13 and 15 inches above all after the 17 inch had been decommissioned way back in 2011. Kuo also speaks of a "completely new" design but does not unbutton itself and offers no other indications. One speaks then of the arrival of the facial recognition for the releasesimilar to that already seen on the iPhone and iPad while the 13-inch MacBook Pro could reach 32 Gb of Ram.
For years, there has been talk of a renewal of the Apple laptop. The MacBook Pro in fact changed little from that model of 2012 , the mid-2012 Retina ( here the presentation ), which had brought the display in high resolution (5 million pixels, 3 more than the high-resolution TVs of the time ) enclosed in an aluminum body. Since then performance has increased , with ever more powerful processors, more RAM and more capacious solid state memories but the computer has remained substantially the same.
Doors have changed, on the latest models there are only four Thunderbolt 3 Usb-Cs for charging and data transfer but no Sd card reader. The introduction of the Touch Bar in 2016 then left quite cold. This bar placed above the keyboard that takes the place of the function keys (the various F1, F2 ...) and allows you to create custom shortcuts for each software did not fully convince the public. Given that the latest evolution of the laptop was presented last July, it is reasonable to expect new models in a few months, at the end of spring or in June and we will see if and how Apple will have integrated the new screen and implemented this "completely new" design of which nothing is known yet.
