16-inch MacBook Pro References Found in macOS Catalina 10.15.1 Beta

References to the 16-inch MacBook Pro have been found in the developer beta of macOS 10.15.1. The image shows a MacBook Pro that looks similar to the existing 15-inch MacBook Pro but with smaller bezels surrounding the display.

There is also a “16” in the filename thereby confirming that we are indeed looking at Apple’s upcoming 16-inch MacBook Pro and not a 15-inch model. There is also another image in the macOS Catalina beta showing the 16-inch MacBook Pro in Space Gray color.

Apple is widely expected to release a 16-inch MacBook Pro this year. Apart from packing a bigger and higher resolution display, it is also expected to feature AMD’s new 7nm Navi GPUs which offer better performance and power efficiency. It will make use of Intel’s 9th generation Core processors and can be reportedly configured with up to an 8-core CPU.  This MacBook Pro will see Apple dump its unreliable butterfly keyboard and mark the return of the scissor mechanism keyboard.

Photos of the 96W charger that Apple will bundle with the 16-inch MacBook Pro have also already leaked. macOS Catalina 10.15.1 beta also includes references for AMD’s RX 5700XT series thereby signaling a possible iMac refresh is around the corner.

Apple has not sent out any press invites for an October media event so far so it is unclear when the company will announce this 16-inch MacBook Pro, 2019 iPad Pros, iMac refresh, and more. Are you looking forward to a 16-inch MacBook Pro from Apple?
