Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro is no more

  Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro is no more Goodbye to the classic screen sizeThe 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.

Pre-orders are live right now on Apple’s website, and the laptops should be shipping and in stores by the end of the week. Other retailers will carry them eventually, but for now the fastest way to get one will be by ordering through Apple.

With that out of the way, the question is “should you get one?” And the answer, if you need to buy a powerful, large laptop with macOS right now, is likely to be “yes.” The 16-inch model is a straight replacement for the 15-inch model, coming in at the same price with better value at each tier even if you ignore the new “Magic” keyboard and bigger screen.

  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 16 - inch MacBook Pro also includes a six-speaker sound system, longer battery life, Touch Bar, Touch ID, the Force Touch trackpad and the Apple T2 Mac Pro starts at US,999 and Pro Display XDR starts at US,999 — local pricing to be confirmed. Both will be available to order in December

New MacBook Pro 13-inch could land early 2020 with new keyboard – but the same old screen

  New MacBook Pro 13-inch could land early 2020 with new keyboard – but the same old screen It makes sense that the smaller MacBook Pro would benefit from the redesigned keyboard in the 16-inch model.This originates from a DigiTimes subscriber-only report, which was highlighted by Mac Rumors, and states that the next MacBook Pro 13-inch refresh will get the new redesigned keyboard, which makes sense – and has been indicated by previous rumors. But the new machine will also apparently stick with a 13.3-inch display.

The 16 - inch MacBook Pro will be an almost identical copy of the 15-inch model — and the difference is obvious. The laptop features a 16 - inch display with Apple also snuck in the press release launch details for the 2019 Mac Pro . The new desktop will be available to order in December, alongside the

  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.

It’s the same story with this model — the processor is unchanged, but there’s a faster GPU and twice as much storage, this time going up to 1TB. You can configure the laptop with up to 64GB of RAM, 8TB (!) of storage, and a Radeon Pro 5500M GPU with 8GB of GDDR6 memory.

One thing to note is that the 16-inch model is slightly thicker and heavier than the 15-inch, accommodating both a larger battery and a revamped cooling system. The weight has increased by about 7 percent to 4.3 pounds (1.95kg), while the machine is about 5 percent thicker at 0.64 inches (16.3mm).

Otherwise, though, the new MacBook Pro looks like a drop-in replacement without much downside. We will, of course, be giving it a full review in due course.
