But, with that timeline passed, 2020 is looking more likely, and it may now be in production according to IDC Analyst Jitesh Ubrani, Forbes reports.

Forbes contributor Brooke Crothers, who penned the report, heard similar tidbits in Asia.

Numerous details in Bloomberg's report match the rumors we've been hearing about Apple's MacBook Pro plans, right down to the larger display with improved resolution.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro will replace the current 15-inch model, which starts at $2,399. Even the newest MacBook Pro models retain the Butterfly keyboards, but there have been rumors that Apple would move back to a standard scissor switch moving forward. However, it's not known if these meetings are about this much-anticipated Mac laptop.

The MacBook Pro and Mac Pro will cap a year of Apple product releases that also included the iPhone 11 line, Apple Watch Series 5 and AirPods Pro.

Current reports are split between a release date sometime this year or a debut in the first half of next year. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has tweeted that Apple will announce 16-inch MacBook Pro tomorrow.

In what could a sign that the launch is coming any day now, Apple is supposedly briefing select members of the press this week in New York City, according to 9to5mac.

One previously speculated reason given for why the 16-inch MacBook Pro could be delayed was keyboard issues.
