New MacBook Pro with Magic Toolbar accidentally leaked in macOS update

macOS Sierra 10.12.1, released yesterday, includes hidden Apple Pay images that depict the brand new MacBook Pro with an OLED touch panel that’s set to be announced by Apple on Thursday, October 27.

In addition to confirming that such a product is in the works, the images give us our first full look at the redesigned MacBook Pro ahead of its launch. An OLED touch panel is located on top of the keyboard, where the function keys would normally be placed, and it very clearly supports Touch ID, as it is seen used with Apple Pay.

James and I talked about it in the podcast recording last night and looks like we’re pretty spot on! Good work us.

The new “Magic Toolbar” sits in place of the current version’s function keys. It will be interesting to see how it feels in everyday use. I press “esc” a lot while programming (and just in general when something isn’t working) so doing that digitally now will definitely be a shift.
