Apple is expected to refresh MacBook Pro according to reports by PetaPixel. This refresh will be the first significant overhaul of Apple's MacBook Pro laptop lineup in last four years as reported by Bloomberg. There have been numerous rumours about Apple expected to refresh Apple MacBook Pro at the end of this month with no concrete evidence. Earlier rumours stated that the refresh is slated for late 2016, after the Apple iPhone 7 event.

Some of the reports point to an imminent early October release while others point to an end of October release. According to MacRumours, the launch date for the updated version will be after 7 October as the company is aiming to finalise the current macOS 10.12.1 beta on October 7 with new features for the MacBooks. The final software will be supplied to the factory for installation in the MacBook Pro refresh.

The latest refresh is expected to have a thinner body along with a 12-inch and 15-inch variant. Apple will introduce a new OLED touch panel at the side of the pro, as a quick toggle or quick access to essential features on the operating system. According to previously leaked details, the new MacBook Pro will include TouchID, Thunderbolt 3, wider trackpad, USB Type-C ports compliant with USB 3.1 generation-2 standards which support up to 10Gbps transfer speeds. In addition to the usual improvements, some reports indicate that Apple may be dropping intel chipsets in favour for AMD chips.
