Upcoming Macbook Pro Images Leak


The fall Apple event is just around the corner and the rumor mill is in full swing. There have recently been a few leaked images showcasing the new OLED touch panel (think function keys), and it supports Apple's Touch ID. I love the idea of an OLED touch panel / toolbar that is context aware. Companies have been trying this for a few years, but having one integrated into a laptop would be the best use scenario. I'm a fan of that feature. We'll have to see how the rest of the machine stacks up.

As has been rumored, the touch panel, which may be called the "Magic Toolbar," appears to be contextual, changing based on what's on the screen. In the images, Apple Pay dialog is depicted, asking a customer to confirm a purchase with a finger on the panel. It appears Touch ID is built into a nearly-invisible power button located next to the display.
