New MacBook Pro Models Remain Set for Reveal This Month

New MacBook Pro Models Remain Set for Reveal This Month

We might be late into October now, but Apple will, says a new report, still be unveiling its eagerly anticipated and much revamped MacBook Pro this month – plus a new 13-inch MacBook Air.

The Japanese site Macotakara claims, citing “a reliable Chinese supplier”, that Apple intends to both announce the new MacBook Pro, expected to get a Touch ID sensor and new dynamic touchscreen bar, and start shipping the machine to retailers before the month is out.

This MacBook Pro will apparently come in the usual 13- and 15-inch sizes and replace all currently available models. Macotakara also suggests that, at the same time as the announcement of this Pro, the 11-inch MacBook Air will be discontinued, and that a new 13-inch Air will be introduced – presumably also this month, though the report doesn’t quite spell this out.

Macotakara continues that the new Pro and Air models will feature USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 ports, but lack the usual USB-A, MagSafe 2 and Thunderbolt 2 ports.

It remains unclear whether Apple will announce these machines at another media event or through a press release. If it will be the former, Apple should be sending invites out to the press very soon.
