16-Inch MacBook Pro Available Today at Apple Stores in United States With Pickup Reservation

Apple today activated its in-store reserve and pickup system for the new 16-inch MacBook Pro in the United States.


This system enables customers to purchase the 16-inch MacBook Pro on Apple.com in advance and select a 30-minute window to pick it up at an Apple Store. The tool can also be used to monitor inventory of the 16-inch MacBook Pro at Apple Stores based on city or ZIP code, with stock available at many locations today.

To check if Apple Stores in your area have stock, head to the 16-inch MacBook Pro page on Apple's website, choose your desired configuration, select "check availability," and enter your city or ZIP code. Note that many custom configurations with upgraded RAM, storage, or graphics are not immediately available for pickup.

If the 16-inch MacBook Pro model that you want is available at your Apple Store today, proceed with ordering and choose the "I'll pick it up" option during the checkout process. You can also choose to have someone else pick up the order.

When you get to the Apple Store, let an employee know you have an order to pick up. Make sure to have a valid government-issued photo ID and your order number on hand. Apple also sometimes provides a QR code that can be added to the Wallet app for convenience and quicker check-in, but this is optional.

Apple may also have 16-inch MacBook Pro stock available for walk-in customers at select stores, but inventory will likely be limited.

For customers who ordered online, 16-inch MacBook Pro deliveries begin today.

In addition to a larger display, the 16-inch MacBook Pro features a new Magic Keyboard with a scissor mechanism and physical Esc key, up to 64GB of RAM, up to 8TB of SSD storage, AMD Radeon Pro 5000M graphics options, upgraded speakers and microphones, and more. Pricing starts at $2,399.

An improved product across the board with 2x more base storage at no additional cost. Is Tim Cook alive and well??

They make this WAY too easy to buy. I ordered the 8 core 1 TB model (16gb/5500) and its in stock at a local Apple Store. For $10 they did a courier to my office in an hour. You can even see the guy on a map in the Apple store app.

Crazy. That’s new.

Literally everyone is sort of disappointed with Tim Cook and let's hope it can learn from its mistake.

Do they have them on display? I’d like to try out the keyboard before I pull the trigger.

No glowing logo, no go.


...about this glowing logo thing (about which some people seem at least semi-serious).

The glowing logo was just a translucent panel that let the LCD backlight shine through. (Hold your old MacBook up to a bright light and you'll see a ghostly Apple logo glowing on the front of the screen). Neat hack.

Has it ever occurred to anybody that maybe the new P3 500nit panels simply might have a more opaque backing (putting in a more reflective back layer seems like step #1 to making a brighter display) so this approach just wouldn't work?

Now, killing the startup chime and the lack of any power on indication (touch bar?) is another issue...

Just had a play with one, and I must say, it's pretty phenomenal.

I mainly frustrated about the SSD not even for personally upgrading it but just because even Apple themselves can’t sell you an aftermarket upgrade for it.

It’s not unreasonable to expect you might buy a 512/1 TB model and down the road realize you really need a lot more storage for your work or some needs change or something.

It’s totally nuts that you would have to buy a completely new laptop just to address that.

A socketed SSD connection would be really nice. Even if it were a proprietary socket, it’d be better to have the optionality down the line.

(sorry, externals suck and I exclude that from this as a defense)

Apple store in Cincinnati had them on display, I tried. And then pulled the trigger.
They actually had one sitting right next to the 13’ MacBook Pro so I could test the differences very easily. It’s night and day IMO. Much quieter and satisfying.
Took them long enough!
