MacBook Pro Updates: New MacBook Pro Saying Goodbye To Traditional USB Ports?
The new MacBook Pro will ditch the traditional USB ports in favor of their new technology.
According to rumors, this change will be known once the new MacBook Pro is announced this coming October 27 at an event at Apple's Cupertino campus.
A Macworld report mentioned that Apple will make their quarterly earnings announcement on October 25 and the supposed announcement of the new MacBooks will come a couple of days later.
The MacBook Pro 2016 will have new features, of course, and the loudest rumor is that Apple will get rid of the traditional jack. The company has already done so with their iPhone 7 and Apple is most likely heading in the same direction with its other devices particularly the MacBook Pro.
The new MacBook Pro will utilize the USB Type-C and Thunderbolt 3 ports if rumors prove true. The USB-C will support Gen 2 USB 3.1 to allow transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s. The MagSafe charging connector will probably be a thing of the past, as well.
Another new feature is the contextual OLED touch panel that will replace the physical function keys at the top row of the keyboard. The new "Dynamic Function Row" will allow the keys to change to match the applications currently used. It will also possibly support Touch ID.
A flatter keyboard will allow Apple to make the MacBook Pro even slimmer. However, its body will not have the tapered look of the MacBook Air and Retina Macbook. The new devices will be available in 13 and 15-inch models.
The last time Apple released a new flagship in their laptop line was in 2012. Sales of the current crop of Apple laptops has dwindled as fans of the MacBook are waiting for the 2016 version.
