Apple to reportedly launch new Macs on October 27th

Apple will be launching its hotly-awaited line of new Macs at an October 27th event, according to sources cited by Recode and Bloomberg.

In August 2016, prolific Apple tipster Mark Gurman of Bloomberg stated that the updated Mac line will include MacBook Airs with multi-functional USB-C technology, iMacs with an option for new graphics chips from AMD and a thinner MacBook Pro with a flatter keyboard.

Another intriguing feature of the Pro, according to Gurman and KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, is a display touch bar above the keyboard that will replace the physical function keys.

Foreshadowing the release, Apple released the newest iteration of its Mac operating system, MacOS Sierra, in September 2016.

Anticipation for new Mac products is high, considering the only Mac debut this year was the minorly tweaked 12-inch 2016 MacBook.
