It is possible that a successor to the recently launched 16-inch MacBook Pro is already underway. A new regulatory presentation by Apple seems to indicate that a new MacBook Pro could be launched soon, possibly in the coming months.
According to 9to5Mac, a new presentation with what appears to be a new MacBook was seen in the database of the Eurasian Economic Commission. A screenshot of the presentation offered some rare details about the possibly upcoming MacBook Pro. The presentation appears to have been submitted on December 24, 2019. This particular document refers to an "Apple portable personal computer brand" and says that It runs on MacOS 10.15, also known as MacOS Catalina, which is the latest version of Apple's flagship Mac. OS. In addition, the new product also receives a model number of A2289.
That alone would not be enough to assume that the new product will necessarily be a new MacBook Pro, but as 9to5Mac points out, it is a good starting point because it is the successor to the recently launched 16-inch MacBook Pro (and the keyboard is updated magical) "would make sense." Not to mention that a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a new scissor keyboard with positive review would be a welcome addition to Apple's updated MacBook Pro line.
That new keyboard received a brilliant critique of Digital Trends. We reviewed the 16-inch MacBook Pro in December and we especially loved the newly redesigned keyboard. Nicknamed the "Magic Keyboard", the new design of the scissor switch was well received and we especially liked its "bigger keys and faster mechanism", as well as the fact that it has a "full millimeter travel". Outside the keyboard, we also liked the screen and speakers of the 16-inch MacBook Pro and felt that it had "excellent performance for content creation." There were only a few drawbacks, including the fact that we still feel that the Touch Bar "is not useful" and that it lacks portability due to its size. But a 13-inch version of this MacBook Pro could solve that last inconvenience and return portability to an otherwise excellent laptop.
But as 9to5Mac points out, although a presentation of EEC generally means that a new product will be launched soon, it is likely that the launch will still be "within a couple of months." Therefore, we will have to wait to see what Apple has in store for us.
