“The listed MacBook Pro is speculated to be the updated version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar”
Following a report last week that Apple is working on new MacBook laptops, MacBook Pro 13-inch has surfaced briefly on the Federal Communication Commission’s website before being pulled down. The listing, first spotted by MacRumours, reveals that the new MacBook Pro will come with model number A2159, which if you recall was also spotted on Eurasian Economic Commission last month. While the version of the MacBook Pro is unknown at the moment, it’s rumoured to be the successor of the current 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar.
The MacBook Escape, as it’s commonly known, has not been refreshed since 2017. However, now that the laptop has been certified, we can expect its launch anytime soon. The FCC listing reveals that the upgraded MacBook Pro has a touch screen and dimensions of 212.4 x 304.1 x 15.6mm. The regulatory label further reveals that the machine will have the same power rating as the existing 13-inch MacBook Pro. Unfortunately, there is no word on the other specifications of the new Apple notebook yet; however, since the display and dimensions remain unchanged, the company could bring the MacBook Pro closer in line with the Touch Bar-toting MacBook models.
Apple is yet to announce the launch date of the new MacBook Pro, but rumours are it could happen in September, which is usually when the company releases its next-gen iPhones and Apple Watch. Apart from the MacBook Pro, Apple is also expected to launch an all-new 16-inch MacBook Pro and an updated version of the MacBook Air laptop.
