Apple is reportedly working on bringing a touch-screen MacBook Pro
Apple, a technology firm based in Cupertino, is rumored to be developing Macs with touchscreens. According to Bloomberg, 2025 could see the introduction of the first touchscreen Mac, which would be the new MacBook Pro with an OLED display. According to the report, Apple engineers are working hard on the issue. It appears that Apple is giving serious consideration to making touch-screen Macs. According to the report, the first touchscreen MacBook Pro will keep the classic laptop form factor popularized by the trackpad and keyboard, but its display will add support for touch input in the style of the iPhone and iPad.
According to the report, Apple is not actively working to merge iPadOS and macOS, so the first touchscreen Macs will most likely run macOS. The United States-based tech giant has long opposed the concept of a touchscreen Mac, so this move would represent a significant shift in strategy. According to another source, Apple is planning to introduce a new MacBook that features an OLED screen. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Apple is excited about the “diverse form factors” and design options that OLED technology will bring to its MacBook lineup.
Kuo claims that OLED displays in laptops provide an advantage over mini-LEDs by enabling thinner, lighter designs, such as foldable laptops. The OLED MacBook is anticipated to be released by Apple no earlier than the end of 2024. An important shift in the OLED laptop market is anticipated as a result of Apple’s adoption of OLED panels. This shift will likely increase the shipment of OLED laptops in the future.
“It’s expected that with Apple’s adoption, the growth of OLED laptop shipments will continue to surge in the coming years,” Kuo wrote on Twitter.
