Apple Macbook Pro 2016 Release Date Slated Next Month; Laptop's Digital Keyboard Confirmed?

The Apple Macbook Pro 2016 release date is expected to happen next month. There are already several reports on the device's new features, especially its redesigned keyboard.

Parent Herald reported that a lot of fans are excited over the Apple Macbook Pro 2016 release date. It was noted that the laptop will be available by June at the company's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2016 in California.

It was added that the Apple Macbook Pro 2016 release date will bring about a device that has a "zero-travel" force-sensitive keyboard feature. Apparently, the laptop will no longer have physical keys, only a flat slate.

There are reports indicating that the tech giant has already filed a patent for the feature. The new technology for the Apple Macbook Pro 2016 was deemed as a "force-sensitive input structure for an electronic device."

This redesigned keyboard, as per rumors, will sense the pressure of the user's fingers and do the necessary command it entails. Users are expected to still feel as if they are hitting physical keys.

The keys are said to have micro-perforations as guide to the proper buttons. Rumors suggest that it will also light up so that Apple Macbook Pro 2016 users will know which keys they pressed.

Aside from the redesigned keyboard, the highly-anticipated device has been said to feature a huge trackpad. This is expected to make browsing a lot easier for users.

Telegraph confirmed the redesigned keyboard feature of the Apple Macbook Pro 2016. However, instead of a digital keyboard, there are still physical keys but the company has designed it to be more responsive with its butterfly mechanism.

The keys are also 17 percent larger than on previous keyboards. It appears that they are placed closer together since the key assembly is 40 percent thinner.

The Apple Macbook Pro 2016 also has a Force Touch trackpad which contains four force sensors. This is a technology first used in the Apple Watch as a way to use a single surface for multiple functions.
