Apple MacBook Pro has been facing decline in sales since couple of quarters. By upgrading the MacBook Pro, Apple is trying to capture the iPad users who upgrade to a new iPad almost after three years, as per their research.
The next line of MacBook Pros will be thinner, will feature a touch screen above the keyboard, more powerful and graphics processors, probably the AMD Poloaris that is 20% thinner than the previous generation. This will also attract gamers and other prosumers looking for a powerful notebook. The new notebooks are already in testing. Other upgrades will include USB-C port and fingerprint recognition to unlock the notebook just like the current iPhone.
