It has been more than a year since Apple updated its MacBook Pro. However, reports from 9to5Mac indicate that Apple will be introducing a MacBook Pro which will be thinner, lighter, and will have simpler ports to align with the new USB C standard. However, a report that blew my mind was that Apple will finally release a fingerprint scanner in its Macbook Pro.

The report reads that the Touch ID (fingerprint scanner) will be built into the power button, this scanner would add to the security complaints users have had in the past. We are hoping that it will also come in handy to make purchases via Apple Pay on MacOS Sierra. However, what I don’t get is how the power off button will be differentiated from the fingerprint scanner, but I’m sure Apple is going to use some sort of Haptic feedback system to activate the feature. This would make sense, as Apple is also taking its Force Touch like hardware a step ahead in the iPhone’s new flat home button.

We recently were also informed about the Apple Watch having two different versions this September. This all continues to add to the hype leading up to Apple’s event, but of all rumors, I am personally hoping that the ‘Space Black’ iPhone leak becomes reality.

UPDATE: Apple is also expected to release a touch OLED panel, which will replace current function keys.
