It appears that Apple is getting ready to release a new MacBook Pro, according to FCC filings.
The filings, which are no longer available but were picked up by several eagle-eyed tech sites, refer to a laptop with the model number A2159, which lines up with a filing Apple made with the Eurasian Economic Commission database.
The filing indicates that this laptop has a 13-inch display and it has the same dimensions and power rating as the current 13-inch MacBook Pro.
All this points to this being an update to the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar. Given that the power ratings and dimensions are unchanged, it seems that this is a minor refresh as opposed to a major revamp.
There’s also a rumour that Apple is planning to drop a new 16-inch MacBook Pro. This is something that’s likely to wait until the next major MacBook Pro refresh (if at all).
This new 13-inch MacBook is expected to be unveiled soon, possibly as part of a back to school push by Apple, or maybe in the fall, to coincide with the release of macOS Catalina.
