MacBook Pro Updates: New MacBook Pro Saying Goodbye To Traditional USB Ports?

It's also suggested that the new Pro line will ditch traditional USB ports, support Touch ID for logging into the computer and making payments, and even upgrading to Thunderbolt 3.

Japanese website Mac Otakara, citing information acquired from a reliable Chinese supplier, said that Apple will be launching both 13-inch and 15-inch models of an updated MacBook Pro within the month, continuing the sizes that are now available for the laptop. The usual top function row keys will be replaced with application matching dynamic keys with touchscreen OLED strip.

Along with the MacBook Pro 2016, the October 27 Apple Event will also showcase the new MacBook Air laptop, as well as the iMac 2016.

Just as notable as what we'll see is what we won't be seeing, which is likely the smaller of the two MacBook Airs, the 11-inch version. According to the publication, the features for MacBook Air will largely remain the same but it will sport an updated USB-C port.

This news adds to the rumor that has been surfacing the internet for some time now. This is possible considering that the entry of the 12-inch Macbook model made things a bit more confusing for buyers. An October launch has been speculated pretty much ever since WWDC 2016 came and went without any new Mac hardware.

MacBook Pro is the flagship laptop device of Apple.

The release of the MacBook Air 2016 remains a possibility, according to recent reports.

MacBook Air is reported to be seen supporting USB Type-C connectivity as well.

Though there have been some other updates, the refresh would be the first new MacBook Pro in four years.

If you are concerned that you won't be able to use latest desktop OS of Apple with your ancient laptop, you will be pleased to know mac OS Sierra is still compatible with the late 2010 MacBook Air.
