New 2017 MacBook Rumors: Ultra-thin Laptop To Feature LTE, Apple Pencil Support?

Apple fans are now excited for the new 2017 MacBook that is rumored to be released with amazing specs and features. Since the iconic MacBook Air that Apple first introduced is now turning eight years old, there might be a great possibility for an upcoming upgrade for the tech giant's line of ultraportable devices.

Rumors have it that its design will be different from the original MacBook and the 2016 MacBook in terms of color options, which added Rose Gold to the existing Gold, Silver and Space Grey options of the 2015 MacBook. And as always, consumers can expect a lighter and thinner design with the dimensions of 13.1mm and 0.9kg.

A person hailed as 'the most accurate Apple analyst in the world' has also spoken up about Apple's plan of introducing a 13-inch MacBook to sit alongside the 12-inch model in the third quarter of 2016. Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI has provided accurate rumors regarding previous Apple products in the past and with this current rumor about the new 2017 MacBook, all those tech savvy individuals will find it hard to stay in their seats.

Apple's latest patent involves technology that allows the company to embed LTE hardware in a computing device, possibly the said 2017 MacBook. If this happens, this paves the way to the very first cellular-enabled Mac ever created by Apple.

Also, they say the company is in talk with the Foxconn start up to use E-link tech to display keys that are customized and aren't even possible to make using the regular keyboard. This model is expected to sport a force touch keyboard too, just like its predecessors.

Rumors about the model being compatible with the Apple Pencil have also emerged. The Pencil features sensors that can detect movement, orientation and depth making it possible to act and be utilized as an 'air mouse' or a joystick for gaming. With the tool, users can draw directly onto the trackpad and enjoy the precision of the iPad Pro.
