The latest rumor: Touch Bar and Touch ID

According to a report from 9to5Mac, the macOS-10.15.1-update contains an image that shows that the new 16-inch MacBook Pro has a separate Touch-ID button, which sits next to the Touch Bar. Earlier reports said that the laptop also has a special Escape key.

DigiTimes (which has a shaky reputation, with their reports), said that Apple’s rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro from the end of October. DigiTimes said that Quanta has started the Computer, the production of the laptop from Apple. As we near the end of October, it looks like we are on the search to a much later date.

A report from the French website MacGeneration found pictures of a laptop that looks a little different from Apple’s current offerings. This could be that the rumored 16-inch-MacBook Pro?


Obviously, a 16-inch-MacBook Pro, would represent the largest Apple laptop, since the 17-inch MacBook Pro was retired in June 2012. While we keep us a sliver of hope for the first MacBook with an OLED display, Apple is likely to panel stick with LCD-display for the 16-inch model reportedly sticking with the same True-Tone-Retina and bump up the resolution a bit to 3072×1920.


With the first new size in eight years, it seems likely that Apple will usher in a new MacBook-design to with him to. Way back in February, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted, the new model is an “all new design”, so we are inclined to believe it would, especially since his other two rumors at the time—a modular Mac Pro and 31.5-inch display is on the money.

But there are only a few details could have been about what this will mean. We would like to see that in the latest report from DigiTimes bezels come as thin as the iPad Pro, right—that would be still room for Face-ID, as well as rounded display corners and a trimmer and lighter chassis. And while we are dreaming, we would not be opposed to the return of the light-up Apple logo, but we are not holding your breath for that.

Our fingers crossed for the return of the light-up Apple logo.


The MacBook keyboard is a source of headache, hand-wringing, and hatred, and it is rumored that Apple has finally gotten the message. To fix to try the butterfly keyboard, several times in the last MacBook release, Kuo predicts that Apple will introduced the task of the mechanism, in 2015 in favor of the traditional scissor mechanism. He reported that the new mechanism using “a glass fiber for a reinforced structure” and is likely to be thicker than the existing keyboard, but we’re willing to bet that no one will notice or care—so long as it is quieter, more durable and not pushed by a grain of dust.

One thing is for sure about the new MacBook is the keyboard, but the Touch Bar will be standard. Apple’s current 13-inch MacBook Pro update will eliminate the only non-Touch-Bar Pro, so there is no turning back. For better or worse, the Touch bar is here to stay.

processor specs

MacRumors reported that IHS, Markit analyst Jeff Lin says that Apple used ninth-generation Intel Core processors in the 16-inch MacBook Pro. Codename coffee lake, the processor has a 2.4 GHz base clock speed, Turbo Boost up to 5.0 GHz, and supports up to eight cores.

Apple currently uses a ninth-generation eight-core Core i9 processor in its $2,799 15-inch MacBook Pro, but the processor is clocked at 2.3 GHz, and supports Turbo Boost up to 4.8 GHz.

As for Intel’s upcoming tenth generation of the Ice Lake processor, it Windows PCs by the end of this year, Apple always follows a few months behind. Macworld’s Jason Cross recently wrote about the tenth generation of Intel Core processor and what to expect for the Mac. 

Apple could opt for a higher basic configuration of the graphics card, but it is likely that the Radeon-Pro-Vega 16 and 20 remain as the BTO options, so that the entry price into the stratosphere The same goes for RAM and storage, which will probably start at 16 GB, and 512 GB to go, each with options much higher.


Apple has decided to change that to four USB-C-Thunderbolt-3-ports of the standard for a per-machine, and this is unlikely. Don’t expect the return of a SD card slot or a USB-A port. We just hope that Apple will decide to secure the headphone socket.
