Following its successful iPhone 7 flagship launch last month, Apple is set to hold another major event entitled Hello Again on Thursday, October 27.
This time, the tech giant is anticipated to unveil a new Macbook Pro, among other gadgets, TIME reports.
Below are five things that are expected to be presented during the Apple affair:
1) The Macbook Pro with touch capabilities
It’s been four years since the Macbook Pro got an update, so expect something big for this model, especially since it’s rumored to be the star of the show.
One of the major upgrades you can expect on the new Macbook Pro is an OLED touch panel, which will replace the physical function keys on the keyboard.
The new feature is set to be called the “Magic Toolbar” and will change its current function to suit whatever you are doing on the Macbook Pro.
2) Other Macs
The Macbook Pro won’t be the only Mac in Apple’s lineup that will be getting some love, as a new MacBook Air and iMac refresh will probably be brought into the mix as well.
The updated MacBook Air is rumored to be ready by this year while the iMac refresh will be launched in 2017. Needless to say, all new Macs will be thinner, faster and better.
Some people love it, others hate it.
Let’s face it, not everyone is a fan of the USB Type-C port, but the revolutionary feature is set to be present in all the devices that will be unveiled during the event. And it is here to stay.
Apple’s AirPods debuted with the launch of the iPhone 7 as an accessory to the new flagship phone.
However, you can only snag the new wireless earphones with the iPhone 7 as of now. Its official launch to the market is believed to be during this event.
5) 5K display
Forget 4K as Apple is poised to unveil a new 5K resolution to wow its consumers.
The eye candy screen display will possible be presented as an external monitor but an exact launch date has yet to be pinned down.
To cap these off, here’s a video from MacRumors that also discusses what to expect:
