New MacBook Pro with Touch ID sensor expected to release soon
Macbook Concept By Martin Haek

We will be seeing a revamped MacBook Pro any time now if we are to believe the word of Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. The new 13 inch and 15 inch retina display laptops by Apple will have a bunch of new features which include a Touch ID sensor and an OLED mini screen above the keyboard.

It seems like Gurman’s report is pretty much in line with all other reports we have received about the new MacBook Pro. He seems to agree with both Ming Chi Kuo from KGI securities and 9to5mac that the reveal of the new laptop is going to be a pretty big event.

The new laptops are going to weigh less and are thinner in design than other MacBook’s released by Apples. The new MacBook Pro will not resemble the MacBook Air which is good news for all those MacBook users who want more than one port on their laptop.

Users should expect better performance and improved battery consumption due to the Intel Skylake processors which will power the new MacBook Pros. The stand out feature about this new MacBook however remains the OLED mini screen that is expected to be situated above the keyboard keys.

It will most likely serve as a replacement of the physical function keys. We still aren’t quite sure how Apple plans on using this screen. It could use it to control basic functions such as volume or media buttons, or it could take a step further and display shortcuts as well as information about the app that might be in use on the laptop.

These new MacBook’s are going to more secure than any other Macs available for two reasons. Firstly the Touch ID sensor that has been incorporated into these new machines and secondly the secure enclave that these laptops will ship with.

The updated features should settle the complaints made by MacBook pro users that the laptops are quite outdates and have received no upgrades since June 2012. But Apple has not made a habit of upgrading its laptops too often if you follow the trend set by the company.

According to Gurman the new MacBook Pros will be released sometime in October and will not be part of the iPhone 7 launch in September.
