New leak suggests that the launch of Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro is imminent

Apple has not announced a press conference for October, but the company is expected to organize one this month, as it has done in previous years. In addition to the iPhone, Apple Watch and the new entry-level iPad that Apple introduced last month, the company is expected to present some new products that will arrive in stores in time for the holiday season. The obvious candidates are the iPad Pro 2019 tablets and the Mac Pro, although the latter was already announced a few months ago. In addition to that, we can see other new products debuting at the fair, with rumors detailing several unannounced devices such as AirPods 3, a Tile-type object finder and a new 16-inch MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro has appeared in a growing number of leaks lately, and the most recent suggests that the product is about to launch.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro is supposed to be the same size as the 15-inch Pro laptop that Apple already sells, but with thinner bezels. The computer should cost more than the 15-inch model and may include additional features to help ensure the price increase.

The most recent leak that points to the imminent arrival of the 16-inch laptop comes from China Chongdiantou (goes Winfuture), which published on Weibo an image of a 96-W USB-C charger that Apple allegedly created for a new product.

The device has the same brands you would expect from an Apple charger and is the same size as the 87 W charger that comes with the 15-inch model of current generation. This is an indication that the charger should be used with a MacBook Pro. While this is only circumstantial evidence, it makes sense to assume that the charger will debut along with the 16-inch MacBook Pro, a laptop that might need a more powerful charger than any of his predecessors.

The charger supposedly supports several configurations, including "5.2V 3A, 9V 3A, 15V 3A, 20.5V 4.3A", for charging other devices, not just a MacBook Pro. That is in line with the existing range of USB-C chargers from Apple, including all models that ship with MacBook Air and Pro models. All USB-C chargers manufactured by Apple (18W, 29W, 30W, 61W and 87W) also work with iPhones and iPads, provided you get a USB cable -Ca-Lightning.
