Recent reports state that Apple will be having an event this upcoming October 27. With this, tech enthusiasts expect that Apple will be launching their latest products such as the MacBook Pro 2016 in the said event.

According to a report from Recode, Apple will be introducing the MacBook Pro 2016 with a new row of customizable touch screen keys. There will also be a new OLED touch screen panel that will be placed on the upper part of the keyboard. This new feature will be replacing the function keys of the previous models. It will also have shortcut keys to frequently used applications.

The MacBook Pro 2016 will also have an improved battery life compared to its predecessors. Apple might also be getting rid the headphone jack because Apple might probably adapt to the trend they made with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as stated on a report by TechRadar.

There are also rumors saying that Apple and LG have been working together for the 5K display of MacBook Pro 2016. The new external display of the laptop will be replacing the ThunderBolt display of the previous models.

However, tech industry will surely be busy in the upcoming weeks because Microsoft will also have its event on October 26, which is expected to unveil details about the Windows 10 update or commonly known as Redstone 2. Some fans also expect that the company will be launching its new devices especially the much anticipated Surface Pro 5 that is said to rival the Apple's MacBook Pro 2016.

There are also rumors that the MacBook Pro 2016 will have a detachable keyboard and screen. A Touch ID sensor will also be available to increase the laptop's security. Apple's smartphones are already using the Touch ID sensor and the MacBook Pro 2016 might also have it. Always stay tuned to Game & Guide for the latest news and updates of Apple's upcoming devices.
