Next-generation Apple MacBook Pros will have taller displays than current models, but not quite 3:2
As Apple's next-generation MacBook Pro models near, it still remains unclear what they will look like. Earlier this week, Steve Moser and MacRumors discovered the resolutions of the MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro, pegged at 3,021 x 1,964 pixels and 3,456 x 2,234 pixels.
Supposedly, these resolutions would yield 2x Retina scaling, a feature lacking from recent MacBook Pros. The 16:10 aspect ratio of current MacBook Pro models is also changing, having been a fixture of the MacBook Air for a while now, too. Based on these resolutions, both the MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 have 14:9 displays, also represented as 15.5:10.
In other words, the MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16 will have taller displays than Apple's current product stack. Hence, people will benefit from more vertical screen space, a useful feature when writing or scrolling webpages.
However, 14:9 is not quite as tall as 3:2, an aspect ratio of which Microsoft is a huge advocate. Other OEMs like HP have since adopted the 3:2 aspect ratio too, most recently with the Spectre x360 14. In short, expect the next MacBook Pros to look a touch taller than their predecessors when Apple unveils them in October or November.
