Between all of the rumors and speculations, Apple’s MacBook is finally coming on the 27th of this month. Obviously, whenever Apple plans to introduce its new machine, there is a great deal of enthusiasm and curiosity. Now the company is hosting an event in Cupertino, California, on October 27th aiming at answering all the questions about MacOS Sierra. The point to be noted that it will be just the next day when Microsoft is planning to provide some updates on Window 10 and a potential new Surface hardware in its personal event.
As per the market experts, in the new MacBook, Apple is going to include a “Dynamic Function Row” in order to replace the top row of function keys with touch screen OLED strip that allows keys to be dynamic to match applications.
These customizable keys are capable enough for app-specific functionality. It may also have the night mode to reduce blue light and eyestrain as well. Finally, the touch ID or any other type of biometric authentication and USB 3.1 are probably on tap. MacBook Pro may be loaded with Intel’s Kaby Lake processor and designed as per Apple’s mantra of thinner or lighter gadget. The slimming down of MacBook Prois th e part of Apple’s strategy to include a flatter keyboard.
Major questions that will hopefully be answered include the fate of the MacBook Air. Are the MacBook ¬ 3 ports, so it is going to be an end of traditional UUSB ports and also of company’s MagSafe charging connector. Many of the potential MacBook owners may find it surprising, but it is the same strategy that we have experienced in the case of Apple’s 12-inch Macbook. They may hope that Apple will manage to squeeze one or more USB Type-C port in the new MacBook Pro.
On the MacBook Air side, Macotakara reports that Apple will kill off the 11-inch version of its popular laptop in favor of the 13-inch model. Previous reports suggest that Apple may also include USB Type-C on the new MacBook Air, which could mean the Air will also lose its traditional USB ports.
