New icons found in macOS suggest that 16-inch MacBook Pro release drawing near

  New icons found in macOS suggest that 16-inch MacBook Pro release drawing near At this point, it's overwhelmingly clear that the butterfly keyboard design Apple introduced on its late-2016 MacBook Pro marks one of the low points in Apple design. Though Apple would go on to make iterative improvements to the design, the bottom line is that the slimmer keyboard design proved to be unreliable and prone to breaking if even the slightest particle happened to lodge itself underneath a key. The good news is that Apple is reportedly planning to launch a slew of new MacBook models with the older scissor mechanism keyboard, including a revamped  MacBook Pro with a 16-inch display.

But the new butterfly keyboard is just awful. Even if you like the feel, the reliability is a dealbreaker for the owner and the sound is a dealbreaker for everyone I can see why someone may not like it in the store trying it out the same I can imagine someone testing something with cherry reds might not like it.

A new MacBook Pro 13-inch will arrive in the first half of 2020, and it will come bearing keyboard gifts – namely the same scissor switches used in the just-released MacBook Pro 16-inch, according to a fresh rumor.

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 news on the screen might be a disappointment to some, as speculation has been floating around that the smaller version of Apple’s MacBook Pro could maintain more or less the same chassis size, but fit in a bigger 14-inch screen.

  Apple Set to Launch MacBook Pro With Bigger Screen, New Keyboard Apple Inc. plans to debut a new MacBook Pro laptop with a larger screen and revamped keyboard as soon as Wednesday, according to people familiar with the situation. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); This will be the first major update to the MacBook Pro line since it was redesigned three years ago. The new, brighter screen will come in a 16-inch version, up from the current 15-inch option, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing unannounced products.

There's a new MacBook Pro for 2020 , and it's available to order on May 7. As usual, there are a number of incremental hardware upgrades to be found We’ve already shared the good news above, but the 13 - inch MacBook Pro 2020 finally ditches the much-maligned butterfly switches in favor of

Mainly because that’s the trick Apple pulled with the new MacBook Pro 16-inch; the chassis isn’t much bigger than the old MacBook Pro 15-inch it replaces (thanks to thinner bezels around the new laptop’s display).

So DigiTimes contends this isn’t happening, but at this point, we obviously can’t take any speculation as confirmed (DigiTimes has proved right in the past, of course, but also wrong on other occasions – so this whole report needs to be treated with some caution).

Keyboard bliss?

It’s obviously good news that the improved keyboard should be on-board, which replaces the often complained about current effort that uses Butterfly switches. The new one employs scissor switches instead, and is modeled on the iMac’s Magic Keyboard – and will hopefully prove more reliable and less prone to being plagued by dust issues.

Apple may reveal its 16-inch MacBook Pro tomorrow

  Apple may reveal its 16-inch MacBook Pro tomorrow Don't worry, that fabled 16-inch MacBook Pro hasn't vanished in fact, it might be right around the corner. 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. It would still stuff a 16-inch display into a system roughly the size of today's 15-inch model, and would ditch the notoriously unreliable butterfly keyboard. However, the insiders claim the new MacBook Pro would cost roughly the same as the outgoing model, and would be available this week.

As we found in our hands-on with the MacBook Pro 16-inch, the overhauled keyboard is also much more comfortable to type on. Furthermore, it makes other changes like reintroducing an escape key top-left, and a Touch ID button, as well as having inverted-T arrow keys. The report doesn’t say if the incoming MacBook Pro 13-inch refresh will also get these changes.

The MacBook Pro 13-inch models were refreshed earlier this year, you may recall, and in July the entry-level version benefited from the introduction of a much more powerful 8th-gen Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, not to mention being graced with the Touch Bar (which was previously left off the base model) as well as Touch ID.

13-inch MacBook Pro with new Magic Keyboard might be coming soon .
Filings made with the Eurasian Economic Commission based in Russia are generally a good sign that a new release is imminent.
