Apple developers are "actively involved," according to a Bloomberg story, in creating a touchscreen MacBook, and they may unveil the display on a new MacBook Pro in 2025. Apple has been hesitant to include touchscreens in its laptops because it already dominates the tablet market with the iPad.
It's possible that Apple will update its well-liked MacBook notebooks in a number of ways. Although the hardware of subsequent MacBook versions has undergone iterative updates, their essential functionality and design have remained mostly the same. However, a recent report suggests that the Cupertino, California-based tech giant may include touchscreen compatibility for its Mac laptops.
All About the Upcoming MacBook Models
The majority of Apple's rivals in the laptop market sell touchscreen models. Two-in-one laptops with touch displays are available from Dell, Lenovo, and other top laptop manufacturers. In 2025, Apple may introduce its first touchscreen MacBook, according to reports. Apple might also, at last, equip its laptops with OLED display technology. Apple now uses Liquid Retina LCD panels for its laptops, while its Super Retina OLED displays are only available for the company's iPhone and Apple Watch models. The rumour claims that the anticipated touchscreen MacBook Pro will maintain its current form, which includes a keyboard and a trackpad. Other MacBook models may eventually feature the touch display.
There have long been rumours of an OLED MacBook, and an analyst had previously projected that Apple would introduce OLED panels to its MacBooks and iPads in 2024. Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst with TF Securities, tweeted on Wednesday that the business might introduce an OLED MacBook before the year 2024 comes to an end.
Apple is rumoured to be working on a new keyboard with dynamic features for a future series of MacBooks in addition to upgrades to the display area. According to rumours, the keyboard might have variable key functionalities that light up depending on the situation. The LEDs that illuminate the key symbols and writing could possibly display animation and video on top of the keys.
