Apple plans to announce its widely rumored 16 – inch MacBook Pro this week, according to a tweet fromBloomberg‘s Mark Gurman.
In another tweet, Gurman suggested the announcement will be made by Wednesday. The news would likely be shared in the form of a press release on the Apple Newsroom and would also likely coincide with early hands-on impressions of the 16 – inch MacBook Pro from select media outlets and YouTube channels.
It’s this week – that’s imminent from two weeks ago.

Only question remaining from multiple folks: is the announcement tomorrow (briefings day) or Wednesday (when review embargoes lift)? Also, 24 hours for a review seems like so little time, so I’d hope the stories are framed as “previews” or “first looks.”

9to5Macrecently reported that Apple appears to be holding private press briefings of some kind at its luxury loft mansion in New York City this week, likely to facilitate those 16 – inch MacBook Pro first impressions. Multiple out-of-town tech reporters have tweeted that they are in or headed to New York City over the last few days.
Rumors suggest the 16 – inch MacBook Pro will feature slimmer bezels around the display, a more reliablescissor switch keyboard,a standalone Touch ID sensor, andpossibly a much-requested physical Esc key. Pricing is unknown, but would likely be higher than the $ 2, (high-end) – inch MacBook Pro.
For what it’s worth,15 – inch MacBook Pro models with AMD Radeon Pro Vega graphics optionsbecame available to order on the Wednesday of this week a year ago, along with a(PRODUCT) RED version of the Apple Watch Sport Loop. Apple also launched its annualholiday gift guideon the same day.
