Specialists of iFixit has disassembled and examined the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2019, which Apple introduced a few days ago. The good: it turned out that the new model has a bigger battery and modular ports. The bad: found a soldered SSD.

Another “plus” MacBook Pro 2019 — battery capacity 58.2 per watt-hour. In the model 2016 without Touch Bar, for example, was equal to 54.5 watt-hours. Likely, the laptop is able to work longer without recharging.
