First look at the new MacBook Pro with Magic Toolbar and Touch ID


Here are the first pictures of Apple’s new MacBook Pro. MacRumors spotted the images of what is believed to be the company’s new laptop hidden within the just-released macOS Sierra 10.12.1 update, and we have no reason to believe otherwise.

The images appear to confirm the rumors that the refreshed MacBook Pro will feature an OLED touch bar, in place of the function keys, and Touch ID. The above photo shows how to use Touch ID to authenticate an online purchase via Apple Pay.


Aside from these two features, though, the images don’t do much to confirm or deny other circulating MacBook Pro rumors. From this point of view we can’t tell if the new laptop is any thinner than its predecessor, and we can’t see if the trackpad is larger.

Still, these are fairly revealing images that seem to spoil one of Apple’s big surprises ahead of their Hello Again event. On Thursday, the company is expected to unveil the new MacBook Pro, alongside a new 13-inch MacBook and possibly other hardware.
