The 16-inch MacBook Pro was the first laptop from Apple to bring in the new Magic Keyboard to replace the controversial Butterfly Keyboard that was plagued with issues and complaints. Now, according to a new filing that has shown up on the Eurasian Economic Commission’s database, the 13-inch MacBook Pro or the MacBook Air 2020.
The filing describes the product to be a “portable personal computer” with the model number being A2289. The filing was filed last year, on December 24, and further details that the computer runs on macOS 10.15. MacOS 10.15 is Apple’s new Catalina OS that was unveiled for Mac devices in October last year.
Interestingly, famed Apple analyst had predicted that Apple would launch a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air with the new Magic Keyboard in 2020. His previous prediction of Apple debuting its all-new keyboard mechanism with a 16-inch MacBook was precisely correct. His July prediction came true when Apple unwrapped its biggest laptop (display size) in its current line-up on November 15.
At the moment, it’s not quite clear as to which laptop is the one that’s mentioned in the filing. But given that Apple recently unveiled the 16-inch MacBook Pro, it might possibly be the 13-inch MacBook Pro. A filing with the EEC usually means that the launch isn’t too far, although it could be a few months away.
2020 is going to be a busy year for Apple. Apart from the launch of the new MacBooks, the Cupertino giant is expected to make waves in the smartphone industry with the launch of a bunch of iPhones, starting with the iPhone SE 2. Apple is also said to refresh its iPad Pro line-up that was initially rumored to get new models in October last year.
