Monday morning rumors: 16-inch MacBook Pro, Apple Glasses, ARM Macs

I hope this rumor is true. The long-rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro is now in introduction and will be available by the end of the month, according to DigiTimes

The website — who has a hit-and-miss record on Apple product prognostications — says Taiwanese manufacturer Quanta Computer has started volume shipments of the supersized laptop. Supply chain sources expect the 16-inch MacBook Pro to feature a scissor keyboard (replacing the controversial butterfly keyboard), an “ultra-thin bezel design,” and Intel’s latest Coffee Lake Refresh or Ice Lake processors.

In other Monday morning rumors, Bloomberg reports (again) Apple has targeted 2020 as a release year for “Apple Glasses,” an augmented reality/virtual reality head-mounted display. The glasses are expected to synchronize with a wearer’s iPhone to display things such as texts, emails, maps, and games over the user’s field of vision. The Bloomberg report also says that:

  • Apple may roll out an Apple Glasses App Store.

  • The first Mac with Apple-built ARM processors.

  • The 2020 iPhones will add 5G support, a beefier processor, and a rear-facing 3D camera for AR purposes.

  • An Apple Watch with sleep-tracking features.
