Kuo doesn't specifyKuo doesn’t specify which MacBook model will be the first to re-introduce the scissor switch keyboard, but it’s long been assumed that it would be rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro.

It is more than professionals that flock to Apple ' s more capable portable laptops. Apple has a wide-ranging lineup with a 13- inch MacBook Pro with Function Keys Then there is the 15 - inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, which comes in a few different configurations with either an i7 or i9 Intel processor.

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:

Bloombergsources hear that Apple may introduce the revamped laptop "as soon as" November 13th (that's tomorrow, if you're reading soon enough). The apparent leak doesn't share more about the design.

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.

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.

Apple confirms shutdown issue with the 2019 13-inch MacBook Pro .
Apple's MacBook Pro issues are still ongoing, as it recently issued a support document confirming an unexpected shutdown problem on the entry-level 13-inch 2019 MacBook Pro. According to MacRumors' forum, the model can suddenly shut down when it hits about 25 to 50 percent of its battery life and you can only turn it on again by connecting the charger. Apple has issued a support document describing how to handle the issue if it pops up. Once your ‌MacBook Pro‌ drops below a 90 percent charge, you should connect it to a charger, quit all applications and let it sleep and charge for eight hours, minimum. After that, update to the latest version of macOS.
