Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in February that he expected Apple to present a MacBook Pro with a larger screen and a 31.6-inch 6K screen this year. Now, however, Kuo has slightly changed the details and timing of those products, says MacRumors.
Initially, Kuo predicted the launch of a new MacBook Pro with a screen size between 16 and 16.5 inches. In addition, a 13-inch model would be added, which can be configured up to 32 GB of RAM. But in that prediction some changes have been made.
Kuo now expects that the new MacBook Pro will get a screen between 15 and 17 inches, and will appear in the first half of 2021. This makes it still the largest MacBook Pro since 2012, when the production of the 17 inch models was stopped.
He also expects a new iPad with a screen between 10 and 12 inches, which appears somewhere between the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021.
In addition, Kuo initially expected a 31.6-inch 6K monitor of its own making. That monitor would have a ‘miniled-like backlight design’. According to Kuo, the timing of that screen hasn’t changed. The screen should appear in the second or third quarter of this year. The details remain the same.
The monitor is interesting, since the last Apple monitor itself has not been sold since 2016. To buy a monitor with your Mac from the Apple Retail Store, you’ll need the 27-inch LG 5G monitor, released in 2016. It is possible that there will be a competitor later this year.
Kuo’s original research paper also included updates on several other new Apple products in 2019. These include three new iPhones with larger batteries and two-way charging.
