Apple hasn’t admitted anything yet, but it’s almost certain that its 16-inch MacBook Pro will eventually move to Apple Silicon. However, according to a Flo’s Weblog article telling the story of the reader, it seems that Apple may have mistakenly acknowledged its existence.
According to the story, the reader was looking for a 16-inch MacBook Pro while looking at Apple’s website. Then I chose the configuration and used the Apple Store sharing option to send a link to my friends. However, the website preview created in the message said “Now with the new Apple M1 chip…” instead of the Intel MacBook Pro.
There may also be bugs where the preview produces incorrect text or the text is quoted from another website. Another possibility is a human error in accidentally unveiling the existence of the M1 version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro earlier than planned. But it’s likely just an error.
This is rumored to be a different chipset for the 16-inch MacBook Pro refresh, which could be the M1X or something called another name, so Apple called it the M1. I can imagine that it would not be called. In any case, Apple is said to announce a newly designed 16-inch MacBook Pro later this year, so it looks like we’ll have to wait to see it.
