Apple will announce a new 13-inch MacBook Pro in May with the code J223, at least according to a voice shared by a YouTuber and leaker Jon Prosser: seconds many observers could be the expected update that will transform this model into the new MacBook Pro 14 ″ 2020 .
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo anticipated Apple's intention to release the new models of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with scissor-type keyboards in the second quarter of 2020. Part of the forecast has already come true, with Apple launching its new MacBook Air 2020 last month, with new keyboard; only the 13-inch MacBook Pro remains, given that the 16-inch MacBook Pro was released just five months ago.
As noted by Prosser, Apple could launch a new dimension for its smaller MacBook Pro offering, with the next update bringing the display to a 14-inch diagonal. Kuo has referred to a MacBook Pro 14 ″ 2020 model in the past, but it is unclear whether this size could arrive in the upcoming update. The new 14-inch model, in any case, would replace the 13-inch MacBook Pro, whose production would therefore be suspended.
The current 13-inch MacBook Pro still uses keyboards with a butterfly mechanism, which as known can be subject to problems, with keys that may not respond after prolonged use; this prompted Apple to start a free repair program all over the world as early as 2018. Subsequently Apple has solved the problem by returning to a scissor keyboard mechanism, present on the 16-inch MacBook Pro and on the new 13-inch MacBook Air.
In addition to the keyboard, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is expected to obtain an updated processor in the form of one of the tenth generation Intel Ice Lake chips, made with 10-nanometer production technology.
Prosser has shared accurate leaks on Google terminals in the past, but only recently has it begun to share rumors of Apple, hence its reliability with reference to Cupertino's hardware still to be proven. If his latest information turns out to be accurate, Apple's entire notebook range will have scissor-type keyboards by the end of next month.
