Apple’s latest addition to its MacBook Pro line in 2019, the 16 inch Apple MacBook Pro is finally here. There were two minor updates of MacBook Pro this year, with the MacBook Pro 13 inch and MacBook Pro 15 inch. However, these models lacked innovations –specifically when it came to their designs, which were the same as the previous year’s models. Unlike other modern MacBook keyboards that were Apple’s biggest blunders in recent memory, finally, the company has decided to rectify the mistakes.
The latest 16 inch Apple MacBook Pro announced on 11th November has a whole new keyboard. Those butterfly keys are completely gone. The new Apple MacBook Pro, with a totally new keyboard, a bigger display with thinner bezels, and gobs of power with up to an 8-core Corei9 CPU, 8GB of video RAM and 8TB of storage is totally a beast. But its improved typing experience is winning the internet over so far.

Apple MacBook Pro 16 inch is one of the most powerful laptops with your choice of 6-core Core i7 processor or an 8–core Core i9 CPU. You get 16-64 GB of RAM and SSD storage of 512-8 TB. Now that’s if we say, more than enough. Looking on the graphics side, the MacBook Pro 16 inch can handle any workload with ease because of its AMD Radeon 5300M GPU which can be upgraded up to 8 GB of VRAM. In short, Apple expects 80 percent of faster performance with the highest-end option.
Increased Battery Life:
With a 100–watt-hour battery, the 16 inch MacBook Pro provides plenty of endurance. Apple says that this MacBook will provide up to 11 hours of web surfing time, which is due to the additional 16-watt-hours than before.
