After a lot rumours popping in about the new iPhone, there have also been a lot of rumours about the next MacBook Pro. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the man who earlier hinted iPhone rumours have now hinted that Apple is planning to revamp the MacBook Pro after almost 4 years from the last overhaul in 2012.
As per Gurman, the new MacBook is likely to be thinner as well as lighter and will come in a 13-inch variant and 15-inch variant. The bezels around the display will also be significantly smaller making the overall body look and feel much smaller than previous versions.
The report from Bloomberg also claims that the new MacBook pro will boast better graphics and Apple will finally introduce Intel’s Skylake processors which will provide better performance and power efficiency. Apple is also likely to include more than one port unlike last year’s New MacBook and these ports in most probability be USB Type-C ports. Unfortunately, there might not be any HDMI port or SD Card slot.
Apart from all of this, the most interesting rumour has been the inclusion of an OLED screen just above the keyboard. We still don’t know how Apple will use this screen but chances are that it will be used to control media functions or to display some notifications. Well, we will have to wait and see.
The famous Touch ID from iPhones is also likely to debut in the next MacBook Pro allowing users to unlock the notebook without entering passwords. And yes eventually just like the iPhone, the Touch ID will be made available to developers to integrate it into various other functions.
These rumours about the design overhaul does makes sense because Apple doesn’t make changes to the design of its devices too often and rely a lot on internal upgrades.
The MacBook Pro, However, is not tipped to be announced on the iPhone launch event to be held on September 7. Apple will be apparently looking to boost up its sale given the latest percentage fall in both its range of notebooks and tablets.
