Apple announces new 16-inch MacBook Pro, featuring ‘Magic Keyboard’, six-speaker sound system, and more
Apple has unveiled its much-rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro, featuring slimmer bezels and up to 80 percent faster performance compared to the 15-inch model it replaces.
Available today from $2,399, the 16-inch MacBook Pro includes a ‘Magic Keyboard’ which reverts back to Apple’s scissor mechanism, a six-speaker sound system, longer battery life, Touch Bar, Touch ID, the Force Touch trackpad and the Apple T2 Security Chip alongside a physical Escape key.
The machine can be configured with up to 8 TB of SSD storage with Intel’s latest 9th-generation processors.
“Our pro customers tell us they want their next MacBook Pro to have a larger display, blazing-fast performance, the biggest battery possible, the best notebook keyboard ever, awesome speakers and massive amounts of storage, and the 16-inch MacBook Pro delivers all of that and more,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing. “With its brilliant 16-inch Retina display, 8-core processors, next-gen pro graphics, even better thermal design, new Magic Keyboard, six-speaker sound system, 100Wh battery, up to 8TB of storage and 64GB of fast memory, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is the world’s best pro notebook.”
Additionally, Apple has said that its all-new Mac Pro and Apple Pro Display XDR will be available in December.
