Apple will update MacBooks on the next week and iMacs in the next year
Apple will held an event on next week, and we already knew it will be all about Macs. However, according to Apple analyst KGI, Apple will announce an updated version of 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro as well as a new MacBook in next week, but you will need to wait until 2017 to see the new iMacs.
Even though the report says that there is a chance for Apple to introduce the next-generation iMacs or the new Cinema Display in October 27th, the report argues those products are not ready to be shown yet.
Nevertheless, 2016 MacBook Pro is definitely coming . KGI says that there will be many major changes with both 2016 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro. The addition of TouchID and replacing the function rows with an OLED display are only few of those changes. As far as we understand, the display above the keyboard will be used to show “contextual commands and shortcuts depending on the currently-used app”. Furthermore, like the MacBook, Pro lineup will replace any current port with USB Type-C ports.
It is also worth mentioning that there is no guarantee if all of those features will be available across both of the devices. Apple might choose to use some of those features only on the 15-inch more expensive model.
The report also mentions a 13-inch MacBook. It will not be a replacement for the current 12-inch model, but instead, will be additional option for users who want a bigger display in a portable form. However, so far, we don’t have any information other than its screen size. At this point though, it sounds odd to have a 12 and 13-inch model.
