Mac Pro and iMac may also get the new feature – Touch Bar: Apple has been giving out announcements of new endeavors in a row now. It was the comeback of Mac Pro yesterday, and now, it is the extension of implementation of the Touch Bar – an OLED touch panel.
When Apple released its MacBook Pro last year (2016), there was this new feature added up – Touch bar. It works as a timeline slider for video editing applications and as the function key. The Touch bar turned to be the most coveted cool feature of Apple recently. It is placed just above the alpha-numeric keys by replacing the functional keys.
Knowing the pulse of users, Apple has now made plans to make the touchpad available for the other Apple devices like – iMac and Mac Pro. After the release of iPhone 7, the work regarding iPhone 8 is going and the time of release is yet to be disclosed. Meanwhile, Apple has decided to take this analysis in hand.
Apple has filed three patent applications previously – 20170090596, 20170090597, and 20170090654. All three are identified as Keyboard with Adaptive Input Row. The plan is to embed the Touch Bar and the Touch ID to the new Magic Keyboard. If this works, there may be a magic keyboard on air which can support a wide range of devices. Phil Schiller, the marketing chief of Apple said that there isn’t going to be a touchscreen for the desktops. So you may get lucky to have a touch experience on the keyboard.
Phill Schiller said, “With regards to the Mac Pro, we are in the process of what we call completely rethinking the Mac Pro. We’re working on it. We have a team working hard on it right now, and we want to architect it so that we can keep it fresh with regular improvements, and we’re committed to making it our highest-end, high-throughput desktop system, designed for our demanding pro customers.”
Apple has announced that it is about to concentrate more on Mac Pro desktops and there is another promise of iMac update before the end of 2017. So, in case Apple decides to work on the patent design and gives out the Magic keyboard, it would be a great treat.
The iMac that is available now has an Aluminium body and a tapered edge which is stylish in its way. Apple always works for its elegant look and stylish present. Not to forget that proud look on the Apple device owners while they hold those stylish kids of the millennium. The new addition – if happens, is going to be the best of the time.
