MacBook Pro 2018 Will Have No Physical Keys Anymore, Plus More Apple Predictions, Release Date [VIDEO]
MacBook Pro 2018 has already started gaining positive expectations and high-end feature suggestions. The reportedly two-year release gap between Apple laptops has not received backlash yet. Instead, MacBook Pro fans are quite impressed after the major upset brought by the 2016 edition.
Among the first concept design for the 2018 MacBook Pro shows that the future laptop will no longer have any physical keys. This early concept came from designer Daniel Brunsteiner of Yanko Design. He has taken the inspiration from the 2016 touch bar.
The designer's idea of ditching the keyboards comes from the total utility of Apple's Taptic Engine which will give the users the feel of physical buttons. Brunsteiner added that there will an embedded feature making the Apple Pencil compatible with the MacBook Pro 2018, The Trusted Reviews reported.
Apple Pencil 2 is reportedly launching this year. This combination can effectively give creative a powerful on-the-go studio coupled with turbo-charged versions of popular apps like Photoshop and more. Theis positive response could be prompted by Apple's immediate action on the 2016 glitch.
It is no secret that Apple responded quickly to address the touch bar issue and taking in public opinion in releasing a mid-ranger version of MacBook Pro. Also, the pattern of releasing a new laptop upgrade consecutively per year pulled down the brand's popularity.
Aside from MacBook Pro 2018, there are still more Apple predictions. For example, the upcoming release of iPad Pro 2. Two tablet tiers are being planned to launch this year: the 12.9-inch and the 9.7-inch. Spring 2017 is the most speculated date for the release but Apple has not dropped any announcement yet.
Meanwhile, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that another size is coming in. He is positive that a 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 will join the Apple's tab bandwagon since the smallest size could be the low-powered version of its siblings, MacWorld reported.
