A fresh image of the ensuing 16-inch MacBook Pro has been recognized in macOS 10.15.1 unveiling a distinct approach to the Touch Bar.
Apple has a lot of activity to do to refurbish the once stellar MacBook fame following a ruinous past few years with its echoed disability to get its “unprecedented” butterfly keyboard mechanism to work reliably in successive generations.
That task will commence with the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro that could go on sale this year or fresh following year based on which rumors you are to guess. As per the reviewed information, a new render of the device in macOS 10.15.1 that explicates it will be embracing a different approach to the “love it or hate it” Touch Bar.
Apple proceeds to insist that large trackpads and the Touch Bar are a better way of interacting with their MacBooks than the touchscreen approach seen in Windows laptops and Chromebooks.
Although the Touch Bar has been provocative, Apple will keep it yet has made several modifications that may further assuage critics of the OLED strip. The most striking, and welcome shift is the return of a physical ESC key while the company has also taken the shot to separate the Touch ID/Power key.
Of course, though you can’t view it in the render, Apple is described to have dropped its even more dubious butterfly keyboard mechanism. The 16-inch MacBook Pro will announce the return of a legendary, albeit, low-profile scissor-switch mechanism that has long stood the mainstay of keyboard designs.
In all other considerations, nevertheless, the latest 16-inch MacBook Pro seems enormously like the present-gen 15-inch models it will be substituted, yet possibly with lighter display bezels too.
