The release notes for Apple’s recently released update to Boot Camp, its utility that allows running Windows on a Mac, contains a reference to an unreleased 2020 model of the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
As pointed out by MacRumors, the mention could be a mistake. However, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is nearly a year old, so it could be a candidate for an update in the near future. While Apple released a new high-end graphic option for the 16-inch MacBook Pro back in June, it still refers to all configurations of the large notebook as 2019 models on its website.
Apple’s release notes for Boot Camp version 6.1.13 read as follows:
The Boot Camp 6.1.13 update improves the compatibility of your Mac when running Windows through Boot Camp.
– Improves audio recording quality when using the built-in microphone
– Fixes a stability issue that could occur during heavy CPU load on 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019 and 2020) and 13-inch MacBook Pro (2020)
Rumors suggest that Apple has another virtual event for November 17 to debut its first Apple Silicon-powered Mac, but it is believed the first MacBook to get the new processor will be a MacBook Air, a 13-inch MacBook Pro, or possibly even a 12-inch MacBook.
