Apple to launch MacBook Pro with 16-inch screen, new keyboard today

The laptop is believed to not much larger than the current 15-inch MacBook Pro thanks to slimmer bezels around the display.

Apple may not have launched the 16-inch MacBook Pro in October when some projections had expected it to show up.

"A source in Asia who talks to the Apple supply chain told me over the weekend that the 16-inch (MacBook Pro) is in production but the release date is unclear", Crothers wrote. Consumers can, various sources have claimed, expect a new and improved keyboard with the 16-inch MacBook Pro, which the new report claims will replace the existing 15-inch version of the laptop.

That would line up with a recent DigiTimes report from late last month indicating that Apple has actually been receiving shipments of the upcoming notebook this quarter.

Numerous details in Bloomberg's report match the rumors we've been hearing about Apple's MacBook Pro plans, right down to the larger display with improved resolution. Even the newest MacBook Pro models retain the Butterfly keyboards, but there have been rumors that Apple would move back to a standard scissor switch moving forward. The new models will have main processors from Intel Corp., not Apple-made chips that it plans to add to at least some computers as early as next year, Bloomberg News has reported.

According to the same report, a new 16-inch MacBook Pro would start about the same as the entry-level 15-inch MacBook Pro – which is $2399.

There's a precedent for Mac media briefings in December.
