16-Inch MacBook Pro Teardown Shows A Larger Battery And Fan Blades

What we can see from iFixit's teardown video is a larger battery, promising prolonged battery life, and a revamped cooling system

The newly-released MacBook Pro with the size of 16 inches comes equipped with a less troublesome scissor-switch keyboard, which might be a relief to anyone planning on upgrading. However, there is one more change shown by iFixit that you might want to know about.

What we can see from their teardown video is a larger battery, promising prolonged battery life, and a revamped cooling system, which also makes it clear why this MacBook Pro has a thickness of 0.7 mm more than those launched before it.

When comparing this 16-inch version with its 15-inch cousin, iFixit pointed out in the teardown video that there are bigger exhaust holes and fan blades, which is reportedly capable of ventilating the innards of the system with 28% more air, as stated in iFixit’s blog post accompanying the video.

This change in the cooling system allegedly allows the device to sustain an extra 12 watts when handling heavy workloads.

The new MacBook Pro draws power from a battery of 99.8 Wh, which is reportedly the largest ever seen on a MacBook before. These big fans appear to be needed for the larger battery, with each of its cells has a thickness of 0.8mm more than that of the 2018’s model.

While it is true that this year’s 16-inch MacBook Pro is slightly thicker to accommodate a more capable battery and cooling system, for most users, the benefits still outweigh the disadvantages of this design. So the device is expected to be warmly welcomed on the market.
