New 16" MBP rumored for Oct

There’s now rumors from two separate sources saying we’ll see a new 16" MBP released in fall. Interestingly, the rumors also say Apple will update the 13" MBP and MBA around the same time. It’s been a long time since the MBP saw more than one update during a year. Perhaps related to a new (and hopefully more reliable) keyboard?

Maybe even more interesting is that the rumors say the 15" MBP will NOT be updated. Could the 16" eventually replace the 15" model? It wouldn’t surprise me if Apple could release a 16" MBP that’s essentially the same size as the current 15" simply by trimming bezels around the screen. In that case replacing the 15" with a 16" makes sense. If indeed this update is also joined by an update of the 13" model, I wonder if that case could also be slimmed while retaining the 13" screen.

And the latest rumor claims the new 16" MBP will come with a new keyboard design using the older scissor mechanism instead of the butterfly mechanism that’s been causing so many issues on current MBPs.

Different source, similar details. Narrower bezels allowing for 16" display into case the size of the current 15". New keyboard. Coming Sep. This source claims 13" and 15" will remain unchanged into 2020.
