New filtered image of the 16 ”MacBook Pro shows changes in the Touch Bar
As happened a couple of weeks ago, macOS Catalina has again given clues about the 16 “MacBook Pro. 9to5Mac discovered that the first update of the operating system – version 10.15.1 – hides a new image of the so rumored computer. This time, you can see a look at the keyboard region, showing an obvious change in the Touch Bar.
To be specific, now the OLED screen of the Touch Bar is completely separated from the Touch ID sensor – which also functions as a power button – the space between them is the same as that between the keys. In the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro there was no separation between the two components. You can see the filtered material below:
After the presentation of the AirPods Pro last Monday, there was hope to see an official announcement of the new computer during this week, but now everything indicates that it will not be so. It is likely, of course, that the announcement is imminent, because macOS continues to include images of the laptop. With the headphones something similar happened, since his first look appeared in the beta of iOS 13.2.
The first rumors of the 16 “MacBook Pro anticipated a redesign, however, it seems that Apple will choose to retain the appearance that debuted in 2016. In terms of the keyboard, reports say the company will integrate a new scissors mechanism to forget of the problematic butterfly keyboard. Despite the above, there is still no evidence to support the change.
Ming-Chi Ku, the analyst who has an impeccable reputation revealing information about future Apple products, recently reported that the MacBook Pro with scissor mechanism keyboard will be launched until mid-2020. However, he did not clarify whether it is the model 16 inches It will be necessary to wait for the next few weeks to end the speculation.
