Apple is reportedly having a big press event on Thursday, October 27, and people are thinking solely about one thing: New MacBooks! Apple fans and tech enthusiasts have been waiting in vain for a massive MacBook Pro upgrade for years, and now it's finally upon us. The said event, entitled "Hello Again," will be taking place at 1pm ET. And like they always do, Apple will be live streaming the whole thing on their official website. As always, a lot of expectations, rumors, and speculations have been leaking out. Here're the biggest ones to expect.

The Biggest one of them all

Arguably the biggest highlight of the event is going to be the introduction of the highly-anticipated MacBook Pro 2016. People are expecting Apple to make significant upgrades to its MacBook Pro lineups, the 13 & 15-inch variants. This is going to be a huge update since the MacBook Pro lineups haven't received any bug overhauls since 2012. Apple fans have been begging an update for years, and now finally, Apple has heard their call.

Specs and much-improved updates

The upgraded MacBook Pro 2016 will be featured as a significantly laptop, offering an OLED touchscreen above the keyboard. The said touchscreen will be positioned along with the function keys, which will dynamically change, based on whatever apps you're using. The MacBook Pro 2016 is also expected to feature USB-C port and Thunderbolt 3 adaptor intended for faster connectivity. It has even been reported that Apple will only have USB-C ports on the MacBook Pro, which could potentially be an indication of the removal of MagSafe, Apple's long-patented, power adaptor.

MacBook Pro Internal Features

Internal-wise, the new MacBook Pro is expected to be incorporated with AMD graphics. As for processors, Apple is torn between two powerful chipsets. Either they could go for Intel's 6th Gen-Core Skylake chipset, or they could opt for the latest Intel Kaby Lake processor. Although people would truly love to have the Kaby Lake-incorporated MacBook Pros, the powerful chipset won't be launch until later next year, which would probably mean that Apple is more likely to go with the Sky Lake processor.
