Is it Possible to Install Cases up to 2019 Model on the New 13-inch MacBook Pro

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro has a height of 15.6 mm, which is 0.7 mm higher than the 13-inch MacBook Pro (2019 model). With this height increase, iMore expects that a hard shell case for a 13-inch MacBook Pro (2016-2019 model) with a butterfly keyboard will fit in just a little tighter.

For products for which compatibility can not be confirmed, iMore recommends storing in a sleeve instead of a hard shell case.

It is not as difficult to install as a high quality hard shell case

In the case of a 13-inch MacBook Pro (2016-2019 model) hard shell case, it is expected that it will be harder or harder to install the higher quality product that attaches importance to the body.

iGlaze Air 13, a hard shell case for moshi’s MacBook Air, was announced on the official page that existing products can be installed in the new model released in March 2020. When the author purchased and tested it, it was difficult to attach the bottom cover without pressing the rubber feet strongly. The fitting was tight, so there was no deviation after mounting.

However, in the MacBook Air, the height difference from the old model was 0.5 mm, but in the new 13-inch MacBook Pro it has expanded to 0.7 mm, so it may not be possible to install a hard shell case without compatibility notation I can think. It seems better to confirm the compatibility announcement from moshi and each company before ordering the hard shell.
