Apple will likely introduce new desktop and laptop computers, among other potential new gadgets.

Apple fans should be sure to mark their calendars for Oct. 27, which is when the company will likely introduce new desktop and laptop computers, among other potential new gadgets.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based firm hasn’t revealed any information about its upcoming products. But a handful of reports have indicated new Mac devices are in the works. The language on Apple’s event invitation (“Hello again”) may also be a reference to the company’s original Mac launch, hinting that a major update to the Mac might be imminent.

New MacBook Pro
If the latest rumors and reports are to be believed, a redesigned MacBook Pro will be the star of Apple’s show. The new laptop will mark the first major overhaul to the MacBook Pro family in more than four years, according to Bloomberg.



The most significant change is expected to be a new touchscreen strip that sits just above the keyboard (where the function key row is now.) The tools shown on this touch bar will change depending on the task or application being used, Bloomberg reported. The row might show playback controls when a media-centric application like iTunes is open, while editing commands may appear when using a program like Microsoft Word. Some have speculated that this strip will be called the Magic Toolbar, after blog Trademark Ninja spotted a trademark application to this effect.

Other new MacBook Pro features reportedly include a fingerprint scanner and the option to include a more powerful graphics chip made by AMD. Bringing Apple’s TouchID fingerprint sensor to the Mac makes sense, considering Apple Pay (which relies on TouchID to verify users’ identity) now works on websites as part of the recently launched macOS Sierra update.
