16-Inch MacBook Pro With All-New Design Expected in 2019, 13-Inch Model May Gain 32GB RAM

Apple will release a new MacBook Pro with a 16-inch to 16.5-inch display and an all-new design in 2019, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Tonight, analyst ‌Ming-Chi Kuo‌ released a research note looking at Apple's releases in 2019. MacRumors has obtained a copy of the report and perhaps the most exciting prediction for Mac users is the revelation that Apple is working on a 16"-16.5" MacBook Pro. Unfortunately the report provides few details beyond that it is an "all-new" design, suggesting Apple is revamping their current MacBook Pro design.

A 16"-16.5" screen would be the largest screen Apple has provided on a MacBook Pro since the discontinuation of the 17" MacBook Pro in 2012. Close followers of Apple's MacBook Pro refresh cycle have been expecting Apple to continue with the current design until at least 2020. The MacBook Pro last saw a redesign only two and half years ago.

Kuo also says Apple may add a 32GB RAM option to the 13-inch MacBook Pro, without providing further details.

More Predictions from Kuo:

- AirPower and New AirPods Said to Ship in First Half of 2019, New iPod Touch With Faster Processor Also Expected
- Two New iPad Pro Models, 10.2-Inch iPad, and iPad Mini 5 Said to Launch in 2019
- 2019 iPhones Can Wirelessly Charge Other Devices, Feature Frosted Glass and Larger Batteries, and More
- Apple Said to Release 31.6-Inch 6K Display With Mini LED-Like Backlight Design in 2019

It can start at $4000 for all that matters; it should have MagSafe, SD-card slot, 2 USB type A housing for the USB-C ports, two regular full featured USB-C ports, HDMI and an audio-jack.

And, no bloody Touch Bar!

All new design...

Unless it has PROPER ports (and multiple ports at that), a keyboard that doesn’t need a condom to work properly, a matte screen, proper heat thermals & actual function keys then they can call it whatever they want to but it certainly won’t be a pro machine or anything close to what true pros want or need.

It will have proper ports- USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. The ports that do everything. I'm so freak'n tired of people whining about it - they're what is here now. They work fantastic. They have power. They have every modern connection with an adapter. I'm sorry your 15 year old game controller doesn't work without a cheap, passive adapter. But I don't care. This is what is now and going forward. Suck it up and grow up.

Keyboard, you have slightly more of a point on. It's still not going to be radically different. The new boards need some better control, but they feel fantastic to type on. There's nothing wrong with them operationally.

Matte screen is hard to find on any laptop. Whine to the manufacturers.

Performance especially on the new ones are fantastic. Just.. just give it up. THey're good machines, bront. And life goes on. If you can't move on, you'll get left behind.

Please be true. My 17" Macbook Pro can't last forever. Hopefully it will be a 16.5 incher.
