Apple is said to be working on the launch of next set of products now that iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are launched and have received a great response from customers. Apple does not want to fall behind in the upcoming festive season hence all the attention now is on the redesigned MacBook Pro release.
Going by the reports, Apple seems to be preparing for the launch which may happen “as soon as October.” The new Mac OS update largely confirms the new hardware features which have been rumored for some time.
The new MackBook Pro may include a Touch ID support and an OLED “touch bar” in place of the current row of function keys across the top of the keyboard. This touch bar would allow common tasks to be done more quickly for whatever program is being used. As per reports the Cupertino tech giant is in final stages of finalizing the OS that will ship out with the new MacBook Pro.
For example, if a user is on their desktop, the screen will show a virtual representation of the standard function row, which includes brightness and media controls. When in an application, the virtual row will show options specific to the task at hand, but volume controls and a switch to show the default functions will always be present. The Safari web browser would enable controls for finding and defining terms, while the iMovie video editor would offer controls for cutting clips and a more-precise volume slider, the people said. – Blooomberg Technology
Along with the updated MBPs, Apple is also rumored to be working on upgraded MacBook Air models that will come with multi-functional USB-C ports and AMD powered iMACs. However, it is still unclear if these will be introduced alongside the new MacBook Pro.
Among all, the OLED bar seems to be a cute addition and if that can be customized as per the rumors it will be very handy. What are your thoughts and expectation of the next MacBook line up from Apple, Do let us know in the comment section below.
