According to a report by 9to5Mac, the macOS 10.15.1 update contains an image that shows that the new 16-inch MacBook Pro has a separate Touch ID button that sits next to the Touch Bar. Earlier reports said that the laptop also has a dedicated Escape key.

Obviously, a 16-inch MacBook Pro would represent the biggest Apple laptop since the 17-inch MacBook Pro was retired in June 2012.
