Apple Store shipping estimates for new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro pre-orders began to slide in late November and early December. As of Sunday morning, estimates for standard configurations for the 14-inch MacBook Pro indicated delivery dates between November 16 and 23. Customizing a 14-inch Pro could push back estimated delivery to mid-December.
For the 16-inch MacBook Pro, standard configurations show estimated shipping times between November 23 and December 1, with custom options also showing mid-December shipping dates depending on what you choose.
Apple showcased its new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops at its “Unleashed” event on October 18th. The new design eliminates the Touch Bar in favor of a full-size array of functions. Apple also added a notch to the MacBook Pro’s screens for the first time and brought back more port options, including an HDMI port, three Thunderbolt ports, an SD card slot, and a headphone jack.
We’re also getting the MagSafe charger back with the new MacBook Pros, with Apple promising to charge up to 50% in 30 minutes. The new laptops will also feature Apple’s ProMotion adaptive refresh rate technology and 120Hz Mini-LED refresh screens.
The 14-inch model starts at $ 1,999 and the 16-inch model starts at $ 2,499.
