We all know that Apple will host its annual event, WWDC, next week. At the event, we are expecting the release of major software updates, but Apple is also rumored to unveil their highly anticipated redesigned 16-inch MacBook Pro. The 16-inch MacBook Pro has been listed in the Regulatory database just a week before the WWDC event.
MacRumors discovered that the 16-inch MacBook Pro had been filed in the Chinese regulatory database by Apple’s supplier Sunwoda Electronics. The listing dates back to 14 April 2021. The listing is for a battery that has a model identifier number A2527 and is rated at 8,693 mAh/11.45V. The specification is quite similar to Apple’s current 16-inch MacBook Pro model.
Earlier this week, the same supplier also filed for iPhone 13 batteries which were also spotted in the Chinese database. If this news is true, then the redesigned 16-inch MacBook Pro model will have a battery with a slightly lower capacity compared to the existing model. The reason might be the slim design. Apple’s M series processor will power the new MacBook, which offers both performance and efficiency.
While some leakers state that Apple will release the new redesigned 16-inch MacBook Pro at WWDC 2021, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman thinks that it will arrive later.
