This move shows that the 16-inch MacBook Pro may soon be released by Apple in the near future.
Currently, it is unclear whether Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pro model will launch in 2019 or 2020, but recently, a report from DigiTimes just announced that Apple will start receiving new laptop shipments. in the fourth quarter of this year. And Taiwan-based manufacturer Quanta Computer is said to be the main supplier.
According to Macrumors, today's report also reiterates that the 16-inch MacBook Pro will feature an ultra-thin bezel design. As a result, the size of this 16-inch laptop will be similar to its 15-inch MacBook Pro predecessor.
However, according to analysts, the fact that Apple began receiving 16-inch MacBook Pro shipments from suppliers in the fourth quarter of 2019 does not mean that this laptop will be released later this year. Apple may simply be planning to reserve a 16-inch MacBook Pro before the 15% import tax, proposed by the US government for additional Chinese shipments including the expected laptop. Will be effective December 15.
Previously, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo initially said that the 16-inch MacBook Pro will launch in the fourth quarter of 2019 with a completely new design, including a scissor switch keyboard. However, this analyst recently announced that the new MacBook with a keyboard cut-off switch would not be available until next year. Therefore, it is not clear whether the "new MacBook model" Kuo mentioned recently is a 16-inch MacBook Pro or not?
