I personally checked the Apple Locations in my neighbourhood and discovered that none of the 10 stores that came up in my search had any inventory at all. Despite being available for purchase, the laptop appears to be disappearing from Apple Stores all throughout the country.
Apple Store inventory of the latest model of the 16-inch MacBook Pro is low, according to YouTuber Luke Miani. He discovered that all of the retail locations around him were out of stock of the laptop after browsing the Apple Store online.
The finding is very curious and could be one more indication that Apple plans to release a new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro at a virtual event in October. Rumors of the redesigned MacBook Pro, powered by a yet unannounced Apple Silicon processor, have been swirling for about a year now.
In-store availability of the 16-inch MacBook Pro is hard to find right now.
The rumored MacBook Pro is expected to feature a new design, mini-LED display, and upgraded Apple Silicon processor. it is also expected to ditch the Touch Bar and bring back a number of connections including HDMI and an SD card.
The laptop is still available for shipping, but finding it in-store is a tough task.
The inventory issue is curious as Apple is rumored to be releasing a new model this month.
You might be hard-pressed to find a 16-inch MacBook Pro in an Apple Store right now.
