These are the Best 16 inch Apple MacBook Pro cases: UAG, Supcase, Spigen, and more
Apple’s 16 inch MacBook Pro is currently the only notebook that the company sells with an Intel chipset. The 16 inch model was a replacement for the 15 inch MacBook Pro when it was launched in 2019 with a similar size, but a larger 16 inch 3072 x 1920 Retina display with narrow bezels. It was also the largest MacBook screen since the 17 inch MacBook Pro, which was discontinued in 2012. It’s expected Apple will be updating the notebook later this year, and like the current-gen 13 inch MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, it’ll be powered by an ARM-based M1 chipset, possibly with a higher core count and clock speeds.
It’s also expected the new 16 inch MacBook Pro will come with a design refresh, possibly new color options similar to the recently announced 24 inch iMac. The latest rumors suggest Apple is working on bringing back the various ports that were removed from the previous design in 2016 where, apart from Thunderbolt, we could see the return of the Magsafe charging port, an SD card reader, and even an HDMI port. The new MacBook Pro could also see the introduction of a mini-LED display similar to the 2021 12.9 inch iPad Pro.
However, if you’re planning to hold on to one of the last Intel-based Macs, check out some of the best cases for the 16 inch MacBook Pro.
