 Apple is launching its new MacBook on 27th OCT?
Apple has been hitting the right notes this year with its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models. However, its MacBook line-up has not been updated for years. They still feature the same old designs with some updated fifth-generation chipsets, that will still burn a hole in your pocket when compared to similarly priced Windows 10 offerings. But things may change soon, and according to a new rumor, Apple could launch its new range of MacBooks as soon as the end of October.

A report from Recode claims that Apple is going to hold an event to launch new Mac hardware on October 27th. Some kind of October launch has been rumored for months, but the exact timing has not yet been confirmed.

Some people were speculating that since we haven’t seen an event invite yet, Apple had scratched its plans to hold an event to launch new hardware this month. Recode‘s report goes against that, and if its reporting is correct, we should be expecting an invite to go to the press sometime this week.

Diving into the details, the new MacBooks will be skipping on the standard USB ports and will go in for the USB Type-C ports instead, along with support for the Thunderbolt 3 standard. The USB C ports will be used for charging, so it is indeed time to wave goodbye to the MagSafe connector.

While the MacBook Pros are expected to arrive in 13-inch and 15-inch models, the same source also points out that Apple will kill the 11-inch MacBook Air. The reasons for the same seem to be related to the existence of the iPad Pro series. The 13-inch MacBook Air model is expected to see a complete redesign.

Last we heard, the MacBook Pro lineup was expected to feature Touch ID and an OLED touch panel that sits over the keyboard. The options displayed would change according to the application in use. In addition to the usual improvements, some reports indicate that Apple may be dropping Intel chipsets in favor for AMD chips.
