Apple works on 16 inch MacBook Pro and 32 inch 6K monitor

A leaked research paper from Apple shows a 16 or 16.5-inch MacBook Pro, a 13-inch MacBook Pro with 32GB of RAM and a proprietary 31.6-inch 6K monitor. The previous 27-inch 5K monitor, launched in 2016, was made by LG.

MacRumors has received a leaked research note from trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who can almost always preview Apple’s plans. According to Kuo, Apple is planning a completely new MacBook Pro design later this year. The new line-up is led by a model with a screen size between 16 and 16.5 inches. This would be the largest MacBook Pro since the 17-inch models were discontinued in 2012.

Kuo also says that the line-up will again include a 13-inch model, configurable up to 32 GB of RAM. Before, you had to choose the 15 inch MacBook Pro for so much memory.

6K monitor

It remains to be seen how completely new this year’s MacBook Pro models will be. The previous redesign with Touch Bar dates back to late 2016, and it took Apple four years to launch the Retina models.

On the other hand, there have been quite a few complaints about the sand-sensitive keyboard. The chassis may need to be tackled to really get rid of the problems. Then a redesign is a logical next step.

Kuo also expects the long-awaited Mac Pro to be launched later this year with easily upgradeable components. Apple has already confirmed this news last year when professionals became impatient.

Finally, a 31.6-inch 6K monitor with a miniled-like backlight design is planned for later this year. Apple’s latest monitor has not been sold since 2016. If you want a monitor with your Mac at the Apple Retail Store today, you can visit LG’s 27-inch 5K monitor. Soon, the latter will have an additional competitor.

Kuo also has a lot of news around new iPhones and iPads in 2019. Read all the details here.
