We have a pretty good idea of the all-new features to expect during Apple's event from the numerous leaks and rumors. Check it out:. A report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman says the new MacBook Pros will have some subtle design changes , like "shallower curves around the edges," which could give them a sleeker and sharper design. Kuo believes the new MacBook Pros will have an even thinner design than the current crop. To help make the new MacBook Pros thinner, Apple is designing new hinges to save space, according to the Chinese news site Commercial Times.
One of the biggest new features in Apple's new MacBook Pro is an OLED display strip that will take the place of the "F" keys, which are usually found above the row of number keys on a keyboard, according to 9to5Mac. For example, you could potentially move the volume control keys, which are F10 to F12 on the current MacBook Pro. Or you could assign one of the keys on the OLED strip to open an app or a shortcut to a feature.
The new MacBook Pros will use USB-C ports for connecting external devices — such as external hard drives, displays, and anything else you normally connect to your computer — according to Ars Technica. That means you might need an adapter to connect legacy peripherals that don't use USB-C, which could be a pain.
At the same time, USB-C allows for faster data transfer speeds, and you could have all your devices connected to a single USB-C adapter rather than multiple cables sticking out of your MacBook Pro, which makes it easier to plug and unplug all your peripherals when you need to. That's because the MagSafe's magnetic connection allows the power cord to disconnect safely without damaging your MacBook Pro if you trip on or pull the wire by accident.
We'll have to wait and see, but it seems like a devolution rather than an upgrade if the rumor is true. Kuo predicts the new MacBook Pro will have a TouchID fingerprint sensor built into the power button, which could be used instead of a password to unlock the laptop. As it is on the iPhone, using TouchID to unlock the new MacBook Pro would be easier and more convenient than typing in a password, especially if you're doing it multiple times a day. Most of the new MacBook Pros will used Intel's latest "Skylake" processors, and some of the models designed for users who need extra graphics power for video games and photo or video editing will include AMD's "Polaris" graphical processors, according to Gurman at Bloomberg.
Apple's new macOS Sierra will come with some nifty features, including "picture in picture" mode that'll let you pop out a video in a separate window, save space by storing old files and apps in iCloud, and use Apple's Siri voice-activated assistant. Apple will announce the new MacBook Pros on October 27, but if the company doesn't launch the new computers the same day, it might make customers wait a few weeks to get the first models. And yes, that is a notch for the FaceTime camera.
The displays also support the P3 color gamut and True Tone. The new and inch MacBook Pros feature a new aluminum case design that makes the laptop smaller than previous models. The inch MacBook Pro is 0. Here are the complete dimensions:. The top of the display has a notch for the FaceTime camera, just like the iPhone.
The power adapter connects to a new MagSafe connector on the laptop. However, the wattage of the adapter depends on the model you buy:. The new MacBook Pros both support faster charging with the watt and watt adapter for the first time, charging up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes.
That notch on the top of the display houses a new p FaceTime HD camera. Apple has finally replaced the p FaceTime camera, and the new camera should result in better image quality. Apple has upped its game when it comes to audio playback and recording. The new MacBook Pro has a six-speaker system, with four tweeters and two woofers.

The MacBook Pro is in for a major upgrade, not only on the inside, but on the outside. As imagined in these unofficial renders , it looks pretty cool.
In order to keep some of its upcoming products secret, Apple files patents and trademarks in different countries before filing for them in the United States. They do this in order to protect their intellectual property while also avoiding leaks. But, due to international trademark and patent laws, they only have a certain amount of time to re-file those trademarks and patents globally in order to keep their seniority, and keep someone from swooping in and filing the same trademark or patent in a different jurisdiction.
So if Apple filed a trademark in, say, Ireland, and waited too long to re-file it in the U. How does that prove that Apple will have an event this month? Which means Apple will need to re-file that trademark globally by October 26, in order to preserve their original filing date. According to a patent attorney speaking with Apple Insider, this is standard operating procedure for Apple. According to information obtained by MacRumors , we could see a fingerprint sensor integrated into the power button.
Those users tend to need common ports, and lots of them, to achieve true productivity. First introduced in , the Thunderbolt display featured a then-impressive p resolution. But recently, the massive Apple monitor has been showing its age, particularly when compared to new 4K monitors. According to MacWorld , the next generation of the Thunderbolt monitor will skip right over 4K and jump into 5K territory with a lush inch display.
