Apple is tipped to be working on refreshing its MacBook Pro lineup, out of which one could appear soon in the future as soon as in May 2020. After recently updating the iPad Pro lineup, it looks like the company will be working on to refresh its MacBook-family products next. And now, a new leak gives a tough mark to out expectations. 

According to leaker Jon Prosser on Twitter, Apple will be launching a refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro “next month,” meaning sometime in May. In a follow up to his tweet, Prosser mentioned that Apple will refresh its current 13-inch model, but a move to a bigger 14-inch display “is a big possibility.”

To make his tweet more credible, Prosser also mentioned the codename of the upcoming MacBook Pro as “J223.” Also, Prosser has been a well-known leakster with some accurate leaks pronouncements related to Google’s products in the past, which makes this leak more trustworthy. From a short while, he started sharing Apple rumors.

In addition to that, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also proposed on March 3 that there would be a replacement of the 13-inch MacBook Pro by one sporting a 14.1-inch Mini LED display. Kuo mentioned in its note that there is no defined date of the launch of this MacBook Pro, however, he expects to see it sometime in 2020. 

Well, if we talk about the updated 13-inch MacBook Pro, it is expected to come with the new scissor-switch keyboard mechanism. Apart from this, the new 13-inch ‌MacBook Pro‌ is expected to get an upgraded processor in the form of one of Intel’s 10th-generation Ice Lake chips, built using a 10-nanometer architecture.

Well, as for the credibility of this leak, just like most of the leaks, we advise you to take this as a grain of salt. However, we will get more confirmation on this leak in the next month if the company launches its refreshed 13-inch MacBook Pro.
