Last week some pictures of the new MacBook Pro showed OLED touch panel chassis integration, specifically in the top of the keyboard and coinciding with the current location of the last row of keys filtered. The images were apparently take in one of the production plants in China Apple and later confirmed by the prestigious analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of which we have heard in these parts.
For those who has trouble imagining how it could integrate a touch panel next to the keyboard MacBook Pro, one of the readers 9to5Mac has created a concept in which camera shows how you could show off the new generation of portable most powerful Apple . As you can see, it would be the biggest change seen in the line of MacBook Pro in recent years and certainly something that would eventually inherit the other models.
The OLED panel would replace the last row of keys corresponding with the Esc-Power buttons, the keyboard also be updated to take the butterfly mechanism already found in the MacBook, expanding the surface of the keys and reducing its overall thickness.
Mark Gurman has also confirmed that the keys that appear on the OLED panel will be predictive and change depending on the application you’re using at all times. Thus, to use any image editing program like Photoshop or Pixelmator keys available on the panel could correspond with useful tools program, serving as a shortcut to take action more quickly.
Apple would want with this approach experience keyboard iOS line of Mac thanks to the predictive technology, one of the keys that Steve Jobs used in the memorable keynote of the iPhone in 2007 to explain why your smartphone not have physical keyboard and uselessness of this when it comes to working with different applications.
As 9to5Mac mentioned, new hardware for this WWDC 2016 is not expected, so the new MacBook Pro with OLED panel could debut later this year with the renewal of other models in the line of Mac.
