A brand new MacBook Pro and a professional 6K monitor are some of the credible rumors that have occurred for the 2019 range of Apple.
Although these rumors are just rumors, they come from a source not only well connected, but which has proven quite accurate in the past. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo pulls his information from contacts in Apple's supply chain, and he made some very interesting and important predictions for the company in 2019. Even with still such rumors, take them with a huge pinch of salt until the official products are announced.
The first of these predictions is a 16-inch MacBook Pro. This is clearly an important development if it turns out to be true. Apple of course had the habit of producing a 17 "model.The new model should be between 16 and 16.5 inches, with a brand new design.With luck, the keyboard will be improved.
He notes, however, that Apple could add a 32GB option to the 13-inch model.
6K Professional Monitor
Apple has not produced a monitor since 2016, but this rumor, if true, could change that. Kuo predicts that Apple will produce this year a 31.6-inch 6K LED backlit display. And it's a rumor that certainly does not lack other fundamentals. Apple said in 2017 that it was working on a new screen to accompany the next redesigned Mac Pro. Phil Schiller had stated at the time: "As part of creating a new Mac Pro, it is, by definition, a modular system. We will also make a professional display.
iPad Pro and iPad Mini 5
In January, Apple registered several new models of iPad with the Eurasian Economic Commission. It is therefore logical that new models arrive this year. Kuo predicts that the current 9.7-inch iPad will become a 10.2-inch model, although it has not proposed anything specific about the new versions of the iPad Pro.
Kuo's information for the iPhone predicts an increase of 4GB of RAM for the new version of the XR, while other models will feature larger batteries, an improved Face ID, a triple function, a case frosted glass, an ultra wide band for positioning and navigation inside and two-way wireless charging for charging other devices. The lightening connector will stay rather than switch to USB-C, which could have offered a faster charge.
As I said earlier, nothing is true until that happens. But Ming-Chi Kuo has been incredibly successful overall, and while some of these things may be easy to "predict," they are slightly more believable when they come from a source like this.
