This fall Apple will unveil the next generation MacBook Pro will feature a fingerprint scanner Touch ID for biometric user identification and touch OLED panel located above the keyboard. This was reported by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, citing informed sources.
“Professional” laptops that the company will present the fall will be equipped with a touch panel above the keyboard, which is a elongated OLED display. Touchscreen, according to sources, will replace the top row of function keys, that is, it will be instead of the row directly above the numeric keys.
Along with the additional touch OLED screen at the top of the keyboard adds to the Apple MacBook Pro fingerprint scanner. It will be built into the button that turns on the portable computer.
In the operating system macOS Sierra already provides the function of Auto Unlock for authorization with the Apple Watch, however, if the user has no “smart” hours from Apple, it will be able to log in, putting a finger to the Power button.
In addition, specifies Kuo, the MacBook Pro new generation will be equipped with USB-C.
The new generation of MacBook Pro will bring in the design of portable computers, the most significant changes over the past few years. The last significant update Apple abandoned DVD drives, switched from hard drives to SSD and increased resolution displays. It happened in 2012.
According to the analyst, the new laptops will be even thinner and lighter MacBook Pro, current generation. This will be achieved thanks to new display fixtures, metal parts which are manufactured by extrusion method, which allows to create parts of a very small size.
Reduction in thickness of the laptops will also help the new keyboard. Keys will have a smaller stroke, in 12-inch MacBook, the thinnest laptop Apple.
