2020 Mac Hardware Rumors

Chance Miller:

But the 14-inch MacBook Pro is said to be just one of the mini-LED products Apple will release in 2020. The others include a 12.9-inch iPad Pro, a 27-inch iMac Pro, a 16-inch MacBook Pro, a 10.2-inch iPad, and a 7.9-inch iPad mini.

Kuo doesn’t offer specific release dates for any of the products other than the iMac Pro, which he says is coming in Q4.

So the 13-inch MacBook Pro will finally get the fixed keyboard, but no word on the MacBook Air.

A Q4 iMac Pro release would mean about 3.5 years between the announcement and the first update.

This is not the pace we’d hoped for.

Update (2020-03-12): Mike Rockwell:

Just a month or two after I started using my [2018] Air, I started having issues with missed and duplicate key presses. I’ve sort-of lived with the annoyance until now because I didn’t have another suitable Mac available to use while my primary machine is out for repair.

Joe Rossignol:

Apple plans to release new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models with scissor keyboards in the second quarter of 2020, according to a new research note today from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, obtained by MacRumors.

Joe Rossignol:

Kuo said Apple plans to launch MacBook models with its own custom processors in the fourth quarter of 2020 or the first quarter of 2021.

But I was told Apple still cares about the Mac!

I miss the days of 6 month or even yearly updates. I’m due for a new iMac but I can wait.
