New OLED Touch bar coming to MacBook Pros this year?

Tech Industry
What's good? Brian Tong here, and welcome to the Apple Byte for all the good and bad inside the world of Apple. A lot of you have been telling me enough about the iPhone. What about the Macbook? Well, ask and you shall receive my friends. After a new report from DigiTimes' Ming-Chi Kuo. That's also been corroborated by 9-5 [UNKNOWN] claims Apple introduced a dramatically overhauled Macbook Pro later this year. [UNKNOWN] claims it will have a new thinner and lighter design. with design cues taken from the 12 inch Ultra Macbook and adopt new metal injected molded hinges from the same company that makes them for the Surface Pro. That we've talked about in the past. The new Macbook Pro's will also support touch id And bring a new OLED display touch bar above the keyboard. Now this OLED touch bar will replace the physical function keys along the top of the keyboard. And the new MacBook Pro is expected to support both USBC and Thunderbolt 3. DigiTimes reports the new updates will come to both the 13 inch and 15 inch models sometime during the fourth quarter of this year. We've told you to keep holding out and This looks to be the biggest revamp for the Mac Book Pro line in four years. Now in another report Digital Times claims a new ultra thin 13 inch Mac Book will be coming in the third quarter of this year expanding the line to include both a 12 inch model and a 13 inch model. Now the current 11 inch and 13 inch Mac Book Airs could transition to become the Budget laptop for Apple's lineup. Yes. $899 for a budget laptop. With the new MacBook Pros representing the feature-packed model and the MacBook ultra-thins becoming the super portables that were once occupied by the Air C. In the world of Apple You go from the best to budget in just a few years and that's a sad apple. Now there's a lot of you iPhone 7 leaked some rumors this week like a lot lot. The latest iPhone Plus parts leak from Steven Hemerstoffer\g show off a dual camera component that's meant for the iPhone 7 Plus model, but even more interesting Storage capacity chips for the presumed seven plus at capacities of 16, 64, and 256 gigs. Yeah you might have peed yourself a little bit with the 256 gig potential but seriously Apple, you still might start off at 16 gigs. That's straight up embarrassing. And you know what you're getting a preemptive bad apple. [SOUND] Because you know they're stubborn, and you know they will do this. All right the new iPhone 7 Plus schematic from 18 blog shows a place for the rumored dual camera but no Smart Connector on the rear is indicated here leaving That feature potentially still up in the air. Also, a purported photo of casing of iPhone seven from Waybo lines up with the recent schematics that featured a beveled, protruding camera with a larger lens, and the redesigned antenna lines. On top of that, no where else that far found a leaked iPhone seven case design that features the same larger hole for the 4.7 inch iPhone camera, but the case also has openings for more speakers. There's two on each side, similar to the new iPad Pros and we haven't seen any iPhone designs with the four speaker arrangements so it could just be bunk. And the Taiwan Economic Daily News reports Apple has told it's supply chain to produce 72 to 78 million units of the iPhone 7 for its launch. That would make it the highest launch target since the 6 and clearly they believe that this phone is going to be a big deal. Tim Even said on CNBC it's going to give us things that we can't live without. So all of that is a day in the life of the iPhone 7 leaks and rumor mills. And, here's a fun one. At Startup Fest in Amsterdam, Tim Cook was asked if he knew where and when the first iPhone was invented. Tim joked and said you know, I thought I knew until last night, last night Neely took me over to look at some Rembrandt's and at one of the paintings I was shocked. There was an iPhone in one of the paintings, now the painting in question was actually a piece of work by Peter Dausch in 1670 called Man Handing a Letter to a Women in the Interest Hall of a House. It hangs in Amsterdam's Rex Museum. Now, Timmy has a point, it kinda does look like an iPhone, so it got me thinking, if an iPhone was in a 1670 painting, maybe it's in other great works, like Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. See? See, there it is. Or, how about the Last Supper? Look, right there! And you definitely didn't want to text Jesus then. And even Michael Angelo's creation of iPhone. Well, I mean Adam. Alright, let's name our winners for the Mortal Kombat for the iOS game giveaway. And you all delivered with some great movie titles. I saw a lot of Sub Zero Dark Thirty And movies using Jax but congrats go to, Sjad with Catch me if Liu Kang Josh Rio said The Love Goro, Christopher Garcia with Shevva Jobs mark leaves them at like ten that were all good but I had to go with Point Baraka. And this gag killed me with All is Ferra in Love and Torr. So good. Plus, honorable mention to infamous with meet Erron Black and Arthur Yap with Sindelrella. So thank you for entertaining me with all of those, and we will be in touch. Alright that's going to do it for this weeks show. You can email us at theapplebyte@cnet.com or tweet me @briantong. And make sure you come back next week because there might be something a little different going on here. That's what they call a teaser. Thanks so much for watching we'll catch you all next time for the byte of the apple. [MUSIC]
