The attention may be on Apple's expected ARM MacBooks, but the company also seemingly has a new version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro in the pipeline. The new MacBook Pro 16 will seemingly arrive before the end of the year, too.

It has been nearly a year since Apple announced the first 16-inch MacBook Pro, replacing the 15-inch model that the company had been selling for over a decade. Apple is yet to confirm any plans to release a new MacBook Pro 16, but it has seemingly provided a concrete reference to the launch date of a subsequent model.

Apparently, Boot Camp 6.1.13 'fixes a stability issue...on 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019 and 2020)', as it also does for the most-recent MacBook Pro 13. Apple released a MacBook Pro 16 with a Radeon Pro 5600M earlier this year, but the company refers to this model as the 16-inch MacBook Pro 2019. So, Apple has either published the changelog for Boot Camp 6.1.13 in error, or it is an indication of the upcoming launch of a new 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Rumour has it that Apple will host a Mac event on November 17, with an announcement for the event due a week before. The company may just use this event to showcase ARM hardware, so we may see a new MacBook Pro 16 arrive via an Apple press release, instead.
