Before the year ends, analysts say that Apple might reveal their latest update of MacBook Pro 2016 which could include a 13-inch and 15-inch laptops with retina displays. The shape could be smaller, lighter and thinner than the previous models.

The latest update from MacBook Pro 2016 also features not just a Touch ID sensor that would unlock your gadget without the need to key in your password, but also with a secure enclave. When your gadget falls into the hands of a hacker, he could easily replace your home button and can have access to all your important apps and even your fingerprints.

But with the secure enclave, it would be futile for hackers to get hold of a copy of your fingerprints even if they will replace the home button. Only authorized MacBook Pro 2016 repair shops are allowed to replace the home button. Otherwise, your precious gadget will be rendered useless with "Error 53."

An OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diodes) mini screen just above the keyboard is also anticipated with MacBook Pro 2016's latest update.  It could very well take out the function keys and replaced with a touchscreen. Traditionally, volume and other multi-media buttons can be manipulated on screen. Apple, makers of MacBook, could use the screen to display shortcut buttons of the app you are using.

Ming-Chi Kuo, a trusty analyst, noted that the Apple company is positioning MacBook Air 2016 in the entry-level category. The MacBook Pro 2016, on the other hand, with its latest updates, will be the elite's choice. The high end laptop will feature a Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C support instead of the traditional USB ports.

Analysts still speculate whether MacBook Pro 2016 will still install the SD card slot and HDMI port. Both are highly functional but dropping them could save up on space on the sleeker, smaller version.
