Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch refresh details
According to a tweet from Jon Prosser, the laptop will feature a familiar design in the refresh. The new MacBook Pro will come with a touch bar, a large trackpad, and the usual keyboard. In addition, we will get the usual high-resolution display. However, it is also possible that the company may upgrade the display to a 14-inch one. This new refresh comes with the codename J223. The tweet also noted that the launch will happen if all goes according to the plan. This likely hints at any coronavirus related delay.

There is no other information available regarding the laptop at the time of writing. However, considering the recent announcements, we can make an educated guess. The company is likely to add the latest Intel chips in the 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro refresh. However, we are not sure if that will be the recently announced 10th generation or existing 9th generation chips.
