The 16-inch MacBook Pro has a mysterious 'lid angle sensor'

  The 16-inch MacBook Pro has a mysterious 'lid angle sensor' The 16-inch MacBook Pro still has some mysteries left after its initial teardown. Both MacRumors and iFixit have confirmed the presence of a "lid angle sensor" that appears to replace the usual Hall effect sensor (measuring the magnitude of a magnetic field) used to detect whether the laptop is open or closed. It's not certain what's different, but there's also a magnet in the hinge proper. An Apple support document asks technicians to calibrate the sensor to consider a display repair successful.We've asked Apple if it can elaborate.

The arrival of Apple’s new 16-inch MacBook Pro comes with an unexpected twist: the classic 15-inch model is being phased out entirely. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is replacing it in the lineup, coming in at the same $2,399 starting price.

The outgoing 15-inch screen size has been a fixture of Apple’s laptop lineup dating back to the PowerBook G4 days and continued on with the MacBook Pro, which was first introduced over a decade ago in 2006.

With this change in place, Apple’s laptop family now consists of:

  Apple will reportedly introduce 16-inch MacBook Pro as soon as tomorrow And yes, it’ll apparently have a new keyboardThe new MacBook Pro is expected to cost “about the same” as the 15-inch model, which starts at $2,399. That’s because, according to Gurman, it’s going to fully replace the classic 15-inch MacBook Pro in Apple’s laptop lineup. I think some people were expecting it to slot in above the existing options as a premium choice, but apparently not.

Apple ' s new 15 - inch MacBook Pro (tested at ,699; starting at ,399) has already seen dual controversies, but it's come out all-the- more -impressive for Apple . Not only have class-action lawsuits (1, 2) arisen about Apple ' s butterfly keyboard switches (the latest model seems to be more reliable)

The last 15-inch MacBook Pro, which was just refreshed in May, will likely remain available for some time, and its exit from the lineup should mean you’ll be able to find decent deals on it. But part of the appeal of the new 16-inch model (aside from the bigger screen) is that it returns to a scissor-switch keyboard. The new keyboard should prove more dependable than the butterfly mechanism that has done damage to the reputation of Apple’s laptops since 2016.

By eliminating the 15-inch model altogether, Apple is beginning to transition away from that controversy. And the company is likely hoping that anyone who has held on to their 2014 or 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro will now be willing to make the upgrade.

Phil Schiller has bad news for anyone hoping for a smaller version of Apple’s new MacBook Pro .
Apple finally unveiled the 2019 MacBook Pro model that so many reports mentioned in the past few months. The 16-inch MacBook Pro laptop replaces the 15-inch model in Apple’s lineup and starts at the same base price. And the screen isn’t the only thing Apple upgraded. We’re looking at beefier specs including more base storage, improved sound, better battery life, and a new Magic keyboard. The obvious question now that the 15-inch MacBook Pro is history, is whether Apple plans to replace the 13-inch model with a 14-inch Pro.
