In what is likely one of the most exciting rumors, Kuo said Apple could release new iPad Pro models that feature an edge-to-edge screen and Apple's facial recognition technology, FaceID. The Core i7 models are clocked at 2.7 (4.5GHz with Turbo Boost) while the integrated Iris Plus 655 graphics receives a bump to 128MB eDRAM - double the amount from the previous models. However, the base model which starts at RM 7,499 is equipped with quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i5 instead alongside 8GB LPDDR3-2133 RAM, and 256GB solid state drive.

Apple offers the upgraded high-end 15-inch MacBook Pro with four different storage options, ranging from 512GB all the way to 4TB. Retina Display with True Tone Delivers Ultimate Viewing Experience With 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide color gamut, the Retina display on MacBook Pro is the best Mac notebook display ever.

The Apple Watch may also get a noteworthy upgrade, as Kuo believes Apple will introduce larger screens for both its models.

Apple has also put the new T2 chip from its iMac Pro into the MacBook Pro, which handles fingerprint scanning, the Touch Bar and other duties. This means you can now activate Siri with your powerful human voice, rather than using a pesky keyboard shortcut like some sort of chump. They maintain the 500-nit maximum brightness and 100% DCI P3 coverage that have always been hallmarks of the modern MacBook Pro.

An analyst says the new model's disappointing sales could lead to the phone being cancelled - with production stopping as soon as this summer.

For this reason, we chose to sift through all the information available and compile a list of some of the rumored new features that will be debuting on the upcoming Apple Watch Series 4. Apple says the new MacBook Pros come with a third-generation keyboard that's quieter than before, but it continues to have the same butterfly switch mechanism and key travel that made the previous gen of MacBook Pros so controversial. Available in Black, Midnight Blue, Saddle Brown, the new leather sleeves fit both the MacBook Pro 15-inch and 13-inch models.

In April, the 13-inch MacBook Pros without touch bars had come under scrutiny, with some users reporting battery-related issues.
