For the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, Apple would have thought of a MagSafe-style USB-C connector, which is equipped with a magnetic connection to the laptop.
There are now few days for the expected Apple event dedicated to the MacBook Line: Thursday, in fact, the company of Cupertino reveals all the novelties for the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air lines. Among many, not only the introduction of a USB-C port, but its declination in MagSafe style. It is what Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities analyst, usually very reliable on the bitten Apple account.
The indiscretion has appeared in a note for investors, with which Kuo wanted to confirm the possible introduction of a special USB-C port for new MacBooks. As it seems, Apple would have designed a connector with magnetic support so that it can reproduce the same functionality as the classic MagSafe, while ensuring the versatility of USB-C VS USB 3. The MagSafe connectors, in fact, remain connected to the laptops thanks to the magnetic force: If the cable is inadvertently taut, this expedient will allow the detachment of the power without causing the device to fall.
Although the decline of Apple is proprietary, it seems that the company is ready to grant its licensed design to third-party manufacturers so that users can take advantage of accessories and chargers of their preference, as long as they are certified.
But it’s not all on the front of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, always on the note that Kuo has forwarded to investors. On the front of the processors, the analyst also confirms the probable choice towards Intel’s Skylake family, as the next Kaby Lake would not be completely ready yet. In addition, it seems that there will be a storage option of up to 2GB, as well as new screen technologies, with even more efficient color compliance. The resolution of the screens, however, should remain identical to the current models, except for MacBook Air, ready to promote to the retina displays.
Finally, Kuo suggests how the OLED bar and touchscreen expected for MacBook Pro, perhaps called Magic toolbar, will see the introduction of a standalone processor, similar to the Apple S2 Watch.
