16-inch MacBook Pro: Everything we know about Apple's rumored jumbo laptop

  16-inch MacBook Pro: Everything we know about Apple's rumored jumbo laptop Rumors suggest that we may see a major redesign sometime before Black Friday.A 16-inch MacBook Pro? It sounded odd -- and yet Kuo is credible. He also predicted, accurately, that we'd see a 31-inch 6K monitor, a new iPad and iPad Mini and three incrementally upgraded iPhones this year. (And those new iPad Pros? Well, that remains to be seen.

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. If it continues to shut down after that, you should contact Apple to get it serviced.

It could just be a batch of these models that have had the issue, but it's worrying in light of Apple's ongoing butterfly keyboard issues. With its latest 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple has dumped that keyboard, but the litigation might still linger for a long while.
