Apple is working on new versions of its MacBook Pro line with Touch ID sensors, an OLED touch panel and USB-C, according to a report by respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities.
Kuo told 9to5Mac that Apple plans to introduce a "dramatically overhauled" MacBook Pro range in the fourth quarter of this year.
The device will have a thinner and lighter design inspired by the 12in MacBook, according to Kuo, alongside a Touch ID sensor for added security and an OLED display touch bar above the keyboard.
This bar will apparently replace the physical function keys along the top of the MacBook keyboard, and will sit alongside metal injection moulded hinges.
The new 13in and 15in MacBooks are also tipped to feature USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 connections, and are likely to run Apple's soon to be announced OS X 10.12 software.
The OS is expected to debut at WWDC next month, and will reportedly be the first version of Mac OS X to come with Siri baked in.
If anything like the 12in MacBook, we can Apple's new MacBook Pros to be available in colours including space grey and rose gold.
Kuo claimed that Apple will also introduce a 13in MacBook similar to the upgraded 12in model launched last month.
In a bid to try to make this less confusing, Kuo explained that Apple plans to make the MacBook Air the entry-level option, while the MacBook will become the mid-tier choice and the MacBook Pro the high-end variant.
This isn't all loose-tongued analyst Kuo has said recently, having revealed some details about next year's iPhone 7S and 7S Plus earlier this year.
Yep, the iPhone 7 still might not be a thing, but Kuo clearly couldn't contain his excitement, announcing that 2017's iPhone will be the first to feature an AMOLED display and Windows 10-style iris-scanning tech.
