Apple Registers 7 Unreleased Mac Notebooks in Eurasian Database

Apple has registered seven unreleased Mac models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database today, including A2141, A2147, A2158, A2159, A2179, A2182, and A2251, according to listings uncovered by MacRumors. All seven models appear to be notebooks, as they are described as "portable" computers.

MacRumors mockup of rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro

On the more imminent front, the 12-inch MacBook is certainly long overdue for an update, having been last refreshed in June 2017. A spec bump to the MacBook Air is also plausible, but its October 2018 refresh was not too long ago.


Looking farther out, we've heard rumors about a 16-inch MacBook Pro with an all-new design launching later this year. Given the ‌MacBook Pro‌ was just refreshed weeks ago, the 16-inch model is presumably a fall product at the earliest. Apple occasionally hosts Mac events in October, including in both 2018 and 2016.

Eurasian Economic Commission filings like these have foreshadowed the release of new Apple products on numerous occasions, including multiple Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPad Pro, Apple Watch, and AirPods models. The filings are legally required for any encrypted devices sold in Russia and select other countries.

Ooooh, no new MBP's for the next 2-3 years please, I've just taken delivery of an 8-core fire hazard with a soon-to-be dodgy keyboard and I don't want to die of buyers remorse in September

Maybe a real keyboard to go with it?

Butterfly keyboards aren't going anywhere because they aren't nearly the problem believed here in the echo chamber.

I noticed that the Tech Specs of the new XDR Pro Display mention 96W host charging. The current MBP is only 87W, maybe a sign of a new model coming ?

After seeing the price of the Mac Pro, the new MacBook Pro 16" is going to be 4K with an afterburner card and start at $4999. The hinge option to hold up the display is $799, and the matte option is also $799.

The echo chamber appears to be pretty big, though:

That mockup of a 16" model looks great. That'd probably get me to finally upgrade from my 2014 MBP :)
