Analyst says that the 2016 MacBook Pro will be very different.

The 2016 MacBook Pro is supposed to be thinner and lighter and feature design treats of the MacBook. So far so good. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities did not stop there in a note to his clients. He also said that Apple will integrate an OLED display instead of the row of function keys. Additionally the Touch ID sensor will make a debut in Macs.

Touch ID makes a lot of sense on MacBooks. I'd like that. The OLED touch pad sounds gimmicky. Apple really adopts OLED in small steps. First the Apple Watch display and now a thin stripe of OLED in the MacBook Pro keyboard.

Apple should rather focus on performance and battery life. What can you do with a OLED display on the keyboard? You can maybe display the widgets from the Dashboard on it besides the function keys.

Other features in the 2016 MacBook Pro are supposed to be USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 support.  

The new 2016 Apple MacBook Pro might be announced at the WWDC 2016 next month. I would rather see an new iMac.  Mine is getting dated and I need a new faster system. Most Apple computer hardware is due for an upgrade. The focus of the WWDC 2016 keynote on June 13 will though be on OS X (MacOS) 10.12, iOS 10 and other operating system upgrades.
