Way back in 2012 was the last time Apple updated the MacBook Pro without a Retina display, and if a new report is any indicator, it could be nearing the end times for the legacy laptop.
Rumor has it that Apple plans on launching the biggest upgrade to its MacBook Pro lineup to date, which will reportedly include an OLED touch bar above the keyboard.
Apple is expected to introduce a redesigned MacBook Pro later this year featuring an OLED touch bar that sits above its keyboard. These stunning renders from concept designer Martin Hajek show us what that might look like.
Earlier this year, Apple did upgrade the MacBook Air line-up, technically speaking, but it wasn’t a big enough boost to see a major announcement.
Word on the street is that Apple plans on refreshing the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro lineup later this year, both of which could boast some interesting new additions.
Many MacBook Pro users have been complaining about their laptops freezing at random after installing the OS X 10.11.4 and 10.11.5 update. The issue leads to the MacBook Pro becoming entirely unresponsive while using Safari, with the only way to get things working is to hard reboot the laptop.
Apple will introduce a new 13-inch Retina MacBook and drop the entire MacBook Air lineup later this year, according to reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The move means the MacBook Air won’t get the Retina display upgrade many fans had been waiting for.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo — known for his accurate track record of predicting Apple’s future plans — in his new report says that Apple will be launching a thinner and lighter revamped MacBook Pro this year. Beside these cosmetic changes, the new MacBook Pro(s) will also feature Touch ID and an OLED display located above the keyboard.
A substantial number of MacBook Pro owners have been plagued by system freezes after installing Apple’s latest OS X El Capitan update. The version 10.11.4 release causes systems to become completely unresponsive for no apparent reason, forcing users to hard reboot.
