Despite the fact that Apple has not announced an official release date for its 16-inch MacBook Pro, there is a piece of evidence that users could see the new notebook lineup as soon as this week.
It is namely the MacBook Pro which is said to be the first to replace the failure plagued butterfly switch keyboard with more reliable scissor-switch keys. Additionally, the widely-expected MacBook Pro update is likely to have slightly slimmer bezels around the sides of the larger display, as well as some changes to its Touch Bar layout.
After the major launching events which Apple has held over the past couple of months, now the company is scheduling an unexpected press briefing for revealing new announcements.
Apple has a dedicated New York City location where the company occasionally holds its private briefings with some press members to give presentations and offer hands-on demonstration time.
Suggested by 9to5Mac and multiple public disclosures, it looks like this week is going to be another one of those occasions. So, if Apple is actually holding private press briefings at the start of this week, users will probably see the subject of those meetings announced publicly very soon.
However, the fact that suggests the briefings could be about the unreleased 16-inch MacBook Pro is an educated guess which no one has proved yet.
It is the supply chain reports from the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo to Apple that are shipping multiple previews of what the new machine will look like, and the 16-inch MacBook Pro has 2019 written all over it if Apple is prepared to start shipping hardware.
This year, Apple has refreshed or spec-bumped its models of the 13-inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro and 15-inch MacBook Pro, and announced the unreleased 2019 Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR, both set for launch by the end of this year, while the presentation rumors keep piling up and make users more impatient and curious.
