Over the past few months, the rumor mill has been abuzz with Apple launching a new laptop. If the word in the markets is to be believed, this will be Apple’s 16-inch MacBook – a first for the company and something that users had been demanding for quite a long time.
Let us take a closer look at this new laptop from Apple and see what features will it include and when will it finally launch! Here’s a closer look:

Apple’s 16-inch MacBook: Features and Specifications
While no official details have released yet, this 16-inch laptop from Apple is expected to run on macOS Catalina 10.15.1 and is expected to run on AMD’s Radeon RX 5300M and/or Radeon RX 5500M GPUs. This speculation makes sense considering Apple has been using AMD graphics since 2015. A string in the code of macOS 10.15.1 reveals that these processors might be put to use.
While Apple has tried a 17 inch MacBook Pro in the past, it didn’t really do so well due to lack of demand. Now that there’s an active demand for a larger MacBook, it seems that time is just right for Apple to release a 16-inch MacBook pro. Let us take a look at the timeline of its release:
Anyone know of a reliable place to sell my MacBook Pro for a decent amount? I'm considering selling my late 2013 retina 15" MacBook Pro and upgrading to the rumored new 16 inch model whenever that releases. But depends how much I'd get for selling it.

When Will The New MacBook Release?
For now, there’s no fixed release date – but the new 16 inch MacBook pro was earlier expected to be announced at the late-October Apple event (which was to be held on the 31st of October). However, that didn’t happen but the new MacBook Pro is expected to be out sometime soon so that it will help boost Apple’s sales for the final quarter of 2019.
