The best for the brightest.
Designed for those who defy limits and change the world, the new MacBook Pro is by far the most powerful notebook we’ve ever created. With an immersive 16-inch Retina display, ultrafast processors, next-generation graphics, the largest battery capacity ever in a MacBook Pro, a new Magic Keyboard and massive storage, it is the ultimate pro notebook for the ultimate user.

The new MacBook Pro offers a stunning 16-inch Retina display — the largest Retina display ever in a Mac notebook. It produces 500 nits of brightness for spectacular highlights and bright whites, while providing deep blacks thanks to the precise photo alignment of liquid crystal molecules. And the P3 wide colour gamut allows brilliant, true-to-life images and video. So no matter where you are, you will see your work in the best possible light.
The narrow-band LED-powered backlight enables MacBook Pro to represent the P3 wide colour gamut for brilliant, true-to-life colour in photos and videos.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro offers a whole new class of performance to the notebook. Thanks to a more advanced thermal design, the Intel Core i9 processor with up to eight cores and 16 threads of processing power sustains higher performance for longer periods of time — and offers up to 2.1 times the performance of a quad-core MacBook Pro. So whether you’re layering dozens of tracks and effects, rendering 3D models, or compiling and testing code, you will be doing it in no time flat.
More advanced thermal architecture allows faster processing. The thermal architecture in MacBook Pro has been completely redesigned, offering larger impellers with improved fan blades for optimal airflow and more heat-dispersing fins for more effective cooling. The resulting gain in cooling capacity enables MacBook Pro to deliver up to 12 watts more maximum sustained power.
Up to 64GB of DDR4 memory means more effective multitasking. The 16-inch MacBook Pro uses fast 2666MHz DDR4 memory — up to 64GB — for smooth performance whether you are loading hundreds of audio samples, editing billion-pixel images or running multiple virtual machines.
Bending reality takes bandwidth.
The AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series provides the most graphics horsepower ever in a MacBook Pro. The 16-inch MacBook Pro base model is over twice as quick as the previous-generation base model, for seamless playback and faster rendering of ultra-high-definition video. And with the optional 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, you’ll get up to 80 per cent quicker performance when executing tasks like colour grading in DaVinci Resolve compared with the Radeon Pro Vega 20.
There’s magic in a perfect workspace.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro takes workflow efficiency to a new level. The new Magic Keyboard offers a refined scissor mechanism with 1 millimetre of travel for a responsive, comfortable and quiet typing experience. The Touch Bar puts powerful shortcuts front and centre, and Touch ID offers fast authentication. A dedicated Escape key enables for quick switching between modes and views. And the inverted-T arrow keys allow fluid navigation whether you’re flying through lines of code, navigating spreadsheets or gaming.
MacBook Pro has a big voice. The six-speaker sound system creates room-filling wide stereo sound like you’ve never heard from a notebook before. Dual force-cancelling woofers dramatically minimize system vibration for a clearer, more natural sound and a half-octave lower range to the bass. And the studio-quality three-mic array rivals professional third-party microphones, for producing clean podcasts or music recordings on the go.
Bring your whole studio with you.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro has up to 8TB of SSD storage — the most available in any notebook. So you can take entire photo or video libraries with you, no matter where you are heading. And with ultrafast speeds, massive files load in an instant and pro apps launch in a blink.
A battery with a strong work ethic.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro has the highest-capacity battery we have ever put in a notebook. The 100-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery not only powers the larger display and offers higher maximum sustained power, it also provides longer battery life — up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing and video playback. So you will have more time to work between charges — whether you’re on or off the grid.
Apple T2 Security Chip
The next generation of security.
Every MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip — our second‑generation custom-engineered Mac silicon created to make everything you do even more secure. It includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that powers Touch ID and offers the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers — including the system management controller, audio controller and SSD controller — into one.
The most powerful and versatile port ever.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra‑high bandwidth with the remarkable versatility of the USB‑C industry standard to produce one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging and video output in one connector, delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. MacBook Pro is equipped with four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it is always the right way up.
