The latest rumors about the MacBook Pro: New 16-inch coming?

Analyst Ming Chi-Kuo in mid-February release an investors note detailing, among other products, the possibility that Apple could release new 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops to replace the current 15-inch models.

Kuo also think that Apple will release a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with support for 32GB of memory, up from the current limit of 16GB.

Kuo doesn’t state when he thinks Apple will release these products. We guess that Apple would announce these at its Worldwide Developers Conference this summer. 

Processor, memory, graphics, and SSDs

The Touch Bar-equipped MacBook Pro uses Intel’s Coffee Lake processors. Coffee Lake is Intel’s eighth-generation processor, and it replaces the seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors that were in the previous MacBook Pro.

In addition to new processors, Apple is now using DDR4 RAM in the MacBook Pro, which is faster than the DDR3 RAM in the older laptops. The maximum amount of RAM supported jumps up to 32GB in the 15-inch model, twice the amount of its predecessor. 16GB is stil the max in the 13-inch laptop.
