Apple  analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is quite reliable when it comes to Apple’s road map. And he shared a ton of information over the weekend in a new report obtained by 9to5mac. In 2019, you can expect a bigger MacBook Pro, a new display and upgrades to iPhones, iPads and AirPods.

Let’s start with the Mac. According to Kuo, Apple has been working on a MacBook Pro with an all-new design. It’s unclear if those future models will retain the same keyboard, as many users have been complaining about the reliability of the butterfly keyboard.

But Kuo learned there will be a bigger model, with a 16 to 16.5-inch display. Let’s hope that Apple is going to trim down the bezels around the display.

TechCrunch already reported that Apple will release a new Mac Pro in 2019. But Kuo believes the company is also going to release a high-end display to go with this Mac Pro. It could be a gigantic 31.6-inch display with a 6K resolution.

When it comes to iPhones, Kuo believes that Apple will release three models just like in 2018. They should retain the same screen sizes and Lightning connector. Some models may have three camera sensors on the back of the device. Face ID and wireless charging could both receive an upgrade with bilateral wireless charging.

It means that you could charge a second device using your phone, which is a great idea when you know that updated AirPods with a wireless charging case are also coming in 2019.

On the iPad front, the entry-level 9.7-inch iPad could become a 10.2-inch iPad with slimmer bezels. iPad Pro models will receive an update with faster processors.

As previously reported, a new iPad mini is still on the road map, as well as an updated iPod touch. Finally, it sounds like the Apple Watch might only receive a minor update with ECG coming to international markets as well as a return of the ceramic option for the next version of the Apple Watch.

With the weather perking up and our commute to and from work finally being in daylight, it’s time to ditch the boots and give those ankles an airing.

Scottie Pippen, 53, just ignited a fire under the ongoing GOAT debate concerning Michael Jordan, 55, and LeBron James, 34. — At least for LeBron fans. Pippen joined the crew of ESPN’s First Take on February 14, live from NBA All-Star weekend in Charlotte, when the topic of the greatest NBA player of all-time was brought up. Usually, the conversation surrounding the GOAT involves MJ and LBJ, but Pippen, who won six championships with MJ, took the discussion in a different direction when he said LeBron doesn’t even compare to Lakers great, Kobe Bryant.

“When I look at LeBron, he’s not what Michael was as a player,” Pippen said on Thursday in front of a live crowd. “He’s not even what Kobe Bryant was as a player. “So, when you talk about trying to compare Michael’s instinct, his ability to take over games, his ability to want to have that last shot. LeBron doesn’t have that gene. That’s not in him.”

Instead, Pippen said, “Kobe has that gene,” adding, “I see a little bit of it inPaul George, Kawhi [Leonard], [Russell] Westbrook. … Not too many players go on the basketball court with that.” Pippen continued: That’s the only thing I knock LeBron about is not having that clutch gene. But, a lot of players don’t have that clutch gene and a lot of players don’t have that opportunity to even develop that clutch gene.”

Watch the moment below, and then see why LeBron fans are saying Pippen was whistling a much different tune when he appeared on the same show [First Take], last season.
Fans vent off on Twitter after Pippen’s comments on First Take. And, many accused him of playing both sides of the fence when it comes to the GOAT debate. Why? — Well, here’s what fans meant by Pippen flip-flopping between MJ and LBJ.

Also during the ESPN segment, Pippen criticized James for his lack of effort during a game earlier this week, which resulted in the Los Angeles Lakers loss, 117-113 against the Atlanta Hawks. “I can sit here and say today, I watched LeBron the other night. The game was on the line. And he made little or no effort to go after the ball,” Pippen explained.

ESPN host Max Kellerman defended James, claiming the three-time NBA champ has already played more minutes than Jordan did in his entire career. But, Pippen hit back.

“It’s not that,” he replied to Kellerman. “It’s that clutch gene. I’m not taking it away that he don’t know how to win, and he’s not willing to have the ball in his hands. But the players that have that clutch gene, they’re gonna go get that ball.”
