Over the past few months, the rumours surrounding a new Apple MacBook Pro have started to intensify.

Numerous analysts have speculated that an updated Apple laptop is being worked on by the team in Cupertino. Reports suggest it will take the form of a 16-inch version the popular notebook with an improved display, Face ID face unlock system, and faster internals.

Along with all that, it’s thought the US firm could be working on a new keyboard. Reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has insisted the new device could ditch Apple’s controversial Butterfly keys for more traditional scissor switches. Apple has struggled with the reliability of its Butterfly keyboard – with brand-new models being added immediately to the extended warranty scheme as soon as they hit shelves to help fix any future issues with the design. 

Of course, this is just hearsay at the moment with nobody knowing what Apple has officially got planned. But there does seem to be more and more rumours around new products from Apple, which typically suggests that a new event is incoming. Earlier this month, whispers of a new pair of AirPods – the so-called – surfaced again.

However, a new image found within the code of macOS Catalina may have given fans their best look yet at what is to come.

Spotted by the team at MacGeneration the file contains the name “MacBookPro16,1” and shows two laptops side-by-side.

Although little is revealed in the photo you can clearly see that one device is slightly bigger than the other and also appears to have much thinner bezels around the screen. This display update was one of the rumours that has been doing the rounds and this may have now been backed up by this photo.

We’ll have to wait and see if this update becomes a reality but there may not be too long to wait.

Apple is renowned for holding an October event where it reveals new MacBooks and iPads. Nothing has been announced just yet but a keynote towards the end of this month would make a lot of sense.

Firstly, Apple will surely want to refresh everyone’s minds about the upcoming Apple TV+ service which launches on November 1. Apple TV+ is offering a bunch of exclusive shows for a price of £4.99 per month with stars including Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Octavia Spencer, J.J. Abrams all joining this new platform to create compelling content. As yet, there’s no sign of a new Apple-branded set-top box to offer customers an incentive to buy the latest hardware to enjoy the new shows.

Then there’s the new and super powerful Mac Pro which is due an official release date at any moment.

Express.co.uk will be watching for any news from Apple and will update this article as soon as we hear anything official.
