Apple's New MacBook Pro and Macs: The Final Rumors

Computing
Apple's new Mac announcement is just a few days away, so this is really for all of you who need to know every rumor, every detail, just everything that we've heard about going into Apple's new Macbook Pro and Mac key note coming up on October 27. This could be one of those key notes where we really see some surprises because We really don't know exactly what's coming. We do know that the Mac Book Pros, they haven't seen a significant design change in over four years. So that is one thing we know. And out of anything it's the Mac Book that we have the most information about. We're expecting to see a revamp 13 inch and 15 inch Mac Book Pros. We expect a thinner design. There are rumors that we'll also have a dedicated touch ID sensor. And they'll include USBC ports and Thunder Bolt 3 as well. Now, I don't know how you guys feel about this, but reports say that Apple will be ditching their mag-safe tech. You know, just the biggest innovation in power cabling that they've ever come up with. That doesn't sound good to me, but the biggest change that we expect to see is the all new, OLED touch bar. This OLED touch bar will be above the keyboard. It pretty much replaces that row of function keys. and it will be able to adapt and change depending on the app you use. So if you're using Safari or you're using a media player, the buttons on top will morph and change to that. Bloomberg says that Apple is calling this internally the dynamic function row, but that name may change. And also we might see the Polaris AMD chip expected to come in the higher end 15" models. Now let's talk MacBook Airs and Mako Tikar reports that Apple is going to discontinue entirely the MacBook Air 11 inch model, but they still expect to keep the 13 inch model in play. One of the new changes and tweaks that we expect to see is that the MacBook Air 13 inch will now also come with USBC ports instead of the standard USB they used in the past. And Apple's ultra thin MacBook 12 inch will still remain in the lineup. That one's really a keeper. But if there's really one thing that I wanna see it's this announcement that no one's really talking about. Bring back the black MacBook. It doesn't have to be that crazy, shiny jet black finish on the iPhone. But for those of you that wanna go old school I'm telling you bring back the black MacBook. Now we haven't really heard any major news in updates for other Macs, there has been one nugget about new iMacs, possibly coming with AMD graphic chips for new the new models but if you talk about the MacPro, that hasn't been updated for three years and then you talk about the Mac Mini, that hasn't been updated for two years so we'll just have to wait and see if Apple does anything with those models. And for all of you who've just been asking me, "When is Apple going to bring out a brand new Apple display?" Well Bloomberg reports that Apple and LG are working together to create a 5K display that can connect to some of it's computers. Again, this information is very early so if we see at the keynote, this is the time to show it off. Apple's new Mac keynote happens on Thursday, October 27. That's at 10 AM Pacific time, it will be held on Apple's Campus in Cupertino. Well, that's pretty much everything we've heard about Apple's new MacBooks and new Mac before their official announcement. [MUSIC]
