Ahead of Apple’s launch event on October 27 where the Cupertino-based company is expected to launch new MacBooks, renders of the new Apple MacBook Pro have already been leaked online. These images were spotted by macrumors, which claimed to find these images hidden inside yesterday’s update to MacOS Sierra. These images suggest the changes that are expected to be made on the new MacBook Pro.
As per these images, the new MacBook Pro is said to come with an OLED touch panel placed at the top of the keyboard where the function keys would normally be seen.
Additionally, Touch ID will be integrated into the OLED panel as the images show a finger placed next to the Apple Pay sign with a message “Touch ID to pay Apple $326.20” with a message on the display saying “Pay with Touch ID.” Evidently, this OLED touch panel lights up only when in use and goes blank otherwise. Also, Apple apparently plans to call the touch panel as the ‘Magic Toolbar.’
In line with the rumours that have been going around for the 13-inch MacBook since a while back, the speakers will be placed at the side. However, we do not know anything about the screen size as of yet. Also, the MacBook 2016 is expected to be thinner and lighter and word has been going around that support for traditional USB ports, MagSafe and Thunderbolt 2 is going to be ditched.
Also, apparently Apple plans to stop manufacturing the 11-inch variant of the MacBook Air and only have the 13-inch variant instead. On the design front though, not a lot of change is expected on the MacBook Air apart from the USB Type-C port.
A new refresh is expected in terms of the iMac lineup, apart from the launch of a new 5K (5120×2880) external display that comes with a built-in GPU.
