According to a new report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is reportedly working on a 16-inch MacBook Pro, an Apple-branded 31-inch 6K display, and an upgraded 13-inch MacBook Pro with 32 GB of RAM. Here’s everything we know so far.
Ming-Chi Kuo, a reputable Apple analyst with a proven track record, released a research note earlier this evening that looks at Apple’s 2019 roadmap.
In the report, Kuo believes that Apple is planning on introducing a larger, 16″ to 16.5-inch MacBook Pro. If you recall, Apple discontinued its 17-inch MacBook Pro in late 2012, which left the 15-inch as the largest MacBook Apple manufactures. According to Kuo, details are scarce, but it’s believed Apple is working on an “all-new” design which is expected in 2020.
Furthermore, the report goes on to highlight plans for an Apple-branded 31-inch 6K “Pro” display. The display will feature high-end backlit technology that offers “outstanding picture quality thanks to its adoption of the Mini LED-like backlight design.” It is rumored that it will launch alongside the modular 2019 Mac Pro. In fact, the display was allegedly shown by Apple in the packaging for the 2018 Mac mini.
Without any more details, Kuo said that Apple plans to offer users an option of 32 GB of RAM on the 13-inch MacBook Pro model in the future.
