Last week Apple confirmed that next Thursday 27, the company will present the expected renewal of its products, but not all, since according to the latest leaks only is the MacBook Pro renewed, leaving for next year iMac renewal.
Yesterday Apple released the first major update of macOS Sierra, where we find improvements in the stability and security of the operating system for Mac computers. In addition, a reader of MacRumors has found confirmation of the rumor that spread on the possibility that Apple introduced an OLED touch screen on the top of the keyboard.
Lorin found this confirmation when accessing system preferences and try to activate the on-screen keyboard. As we can see in the picture that heads this article, the new keyboard only offers 5 rows of keys while the old model shows 6 rows. The deleted row in the new keyboard is the top, we find the keys functions such as brightness, volume, music playback, multitasking, the launchpad …
The image does not show the existence of an OLED display and functionality, so it is likely that screen settings through other menus are made. The disappearance of the sixth row would confirm the configurable OLED panel depending on the application that we use and that could also integrate a fingerprint sensor both to access the MacBook without entering the password to make payments via Apple Pay without having to confirm the purchase with the iPhone.
MacRumors has published the first images of how it will be the OLED touch screen of the new MacBook Pro will be presented on Thursday 27 October. As we can see this screen OLED touch panel integrate fingerprint sensor to confirm our identity when making purchases over the Internet and pay with Apple Pay.
