Apple to Release Three MacBook Models Next Week – No Desktops Unfortunately
What could look like the last report till Apple kicks off its October 27 event, the latest information received states that the company is definitely going to be announcing three new MacBook models. Unfortunately, those who were looking to upgrade to an iMac will have to wait patiently next year.
This week’s Event Will Include the Apple 13-Inch MacBook, a MacBook Pro, and the Powerful 15.4-Inch MacBook Pro Model
It looks like out of the three MacBook models, Apple is also going to be announcing 13-inch version, which could serve to improve the current MacBook lineup, which right now just includes a 12-inch model. Perhaps this time, we could see more than just a single Type-C USB port, since that will grant more flexibility to users. As for the 13.3-inch and 15.4-inch Retina MacBook Pro models, both of them are going to feature the highly anticipated OLED function row. According to a trademark filing, it is referred to as the Magic Toolbar, and it is possible that it will replace the function keys row that you have seen on MacBook models for a very long time.
It is expected that these machines will also come with Type-C USB ports, but Apple might get rid of traditional USB ports, which could bring some complications to users who have a collection of USB-connected peripherals in possession. However, one thing that we noticed from the report was the fact there was no MacBook Air model included. This could mean that the tech giant will finally be getting rid of this lineup. Earlier, we decided to take a poll of whether or not Apple should get rid of its 11.6-inch MacBook Air, and it looks like the majority of voters were in favor of our discussion.
Consumers waiting to upgrade to a new iMac will be sorely disappointed as the report states that new models are going to appear next year. It has also been stated that a new external 5K display with an integrated display is also going to be appearing in 2017. In short, the desktop elements of Apple’s lineup might not be present at the event, but we’re still being optimistic.
