Here’s your first glimpse of that 16-inch MacBook Pro. Or not.

  • Behold, we have appeared to have images of the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro. All pulled form a macOS Catalina beta.
  • A French blog this week published what it called a rendering for a new Mac laptop that was discovered hidden in a macOS Catalina beta.
  • Skeptics, from Twitter to tech news sites, quickly tamped down any excitement by pointing out the icon’s similarities to the current 15-inch model.

2020 will deliver Apple’s ‘most impressive hardware’ in years

  • 2020 will be the year Apple unveils its “most impressive hardware in some time,” according to a new report.
  • Alongside big upgrades for iPhone, Apple Watch and Mac, Cupertino also is expected to deliver its first augmented reality glasses.
  • It’s been two years since Apple introduced a major iPhone redesign. The Apple Watch hasn’t changed significantly since its debut.
  • But 2020 could change all that. Bloomberg expects Apple to blow everyone away next year with huge upgrades and brand-new product lines.
