Official photos of new MacBook Pro leaked
Well, seems like Apple can’t hide it any longer as a couple of what looks like official images of their upcoming MacBook Pro have leaked online and it’s looking good.
As posted by MacRumors, the images confirm the long-rumored additional hardware change coming to the MacBook Pro — an OLED touch panel. It’ll be located on top of the keyboard where the function keys used to be. And, to its far right is a Touch ID sensor with support for Apple Play.
The touch panel may be called “Magic Toolbar”. It’s an adaptive panel depending on what’s on the screen. Consider it to be similar to the likes of a second screen on the LG V20. Interestingly, Apple Pay is coming to the notebook realm thanks to the Touch ID built into the power button, or what it at least seems to be.
Additional changes based on the leaked images include speaker grilles for the 13-inch model, a re-designed hinged that could point out to a thinner and lighter MacBook Pro, and flatter keys similar to the MacBook’s butterfly mechanism.
Apple is going to unveil this official tomorrow. We’ll give you updates on what’s new from the Cupertino company which could include a new MacBook Air and iMac models too.
