Apple Drops “Late” for 2016 MacBook Pro Models…

GY25 – MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)
GY6N – MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)
GYFH – MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
GYGR – MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

H03M – MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
H03Q – MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)

Edit:

The data for About This Mac is cached after it is pulled from the Apple server. You can find it here:

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.SystemProfiler.plist

  1. hi Pike, is that screenshot from a real MacBook pro? just wondering if you think you will ever be able to figure out the HD530 glitch fix when also using a dGPU.
    Thanks,
    g\

  2. I guess it’s just a question of ergonomics. Considering this is the only mac book pro from 2016, precising whether it is early, mid or late is useless.

  3. Hi Pikeralpha, I was wondering if you ever shared your script for querying the serials? Didn’t see it on Github or the previous blog posts, so I assume not, is it something that you would be willing to share?
