And it's not the only subject we're left to speculate about, either, with Kuo's report also suggesting that enhanced heart rate detection will be coming to the new Apple smartwatch. According to Apple, the 15-inch model is up to 70% faster and the 13-inch model two times faster than earlier models.

For power users, the 4th-generation, quad-core Core i7 chip is just not going to cut it anymore.

The eGPU is a freestanding extruded aluminum enclosure for an included Radeon Pro 580 GPU - the same GPU included in Apple's high-end 27-inch iMac a year ago - with Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.1 connectivity.

Both models come with the TouchBar, in case you ever found a decent use for it, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, a True Tone Retina display, Radeon Pro graphics, a Force Touch trackpad, TouchID, stereo speakers, Apple's T2 chip, Siri voice controls, and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.

Apple's 13-inch MacBook Pros don't come with graphics card, which are useful for power-hungry tasks, like photo and video editing, as well as playing games.

Processor upgrades for the Mac Mini, MacBook Pro, and MacBook.

Now, Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities says Apple will release three new iPhone models including a slightly cheaper 6.1-inch phone without 3D touch. The note provides quite a detailed list of upgrades for Apple tech, that should be announced at its Fall event in a few weeks time.

Apple just announced a major upgrade to the MacBook Pro lineup. Up to 2.9 GHz clock speeds - with Turbo Boost up to 4.8 GHz - is on offer, combined with a massive up to 32 GB of DDR memory. The classic MacBook Pro also had an HDMI port.

The starting price for the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is $1799 (R24,000), the same as before.

The screens and Touch Bars on these notebooks now incorporate Apple's True Tone display technology to shift white points in response to ambient lighting.

The previous versions of the keyboard have been a pain-point for customers and Apple for their lack of reliability since the switch to the newer, thinner butterfly keys, about which there are now multiple lawsuits. The 15-inch version, meanwhile, has a six-core CPU, up to 32GB of RAM and up to 4TB of SSD storage. So yes - the keyboard is technically improved, but we aren't quite certain whether it will fix any of the issues that users had with the previous gen MacBook Pros.
