With machine references already found even in the last beta of macOS Catalina 10.15.1, no wonder this news brought by DigiTimes: According to sources of the vehicle, Apple (through its partner Quanta Computer) would have already started production of the long awaited 16-inch MacBook Pro in China.
Since we're talking about a high-end laptop, which should start at $ 3,000, its mass production doesn't have to start as early as iPhones, for example. Thus, it can be said that this new MBP may be announced later this month.
The new MBP is expected to have a screen with smaller frames (increasing from 15 to 16 inches), the scissor engine returning to its keyboard (hallelujah!) And traditional internal component upgrades such as next-generation Intel processors.
The news awaited will certainly be welcomed, but being "just" that is, not coming with a completely new design or Face ID, for example until understandable that the announcement could be made only by the Apple website, without a special event for that.
We will keep an eye.
