Images of the upcoming notebook were accidentally leaked by Apple, showing the OLED touch panel that replaces the function keys which was already mentioned by more rumors so far.

Tomorrow, Apple is expected to announce new Macs or at least noticeable upgrades to its current lineup. However, MacRumors' reader Richard has already spotted a few hidden Apple Pay images in macOS Sierra 10.12.1 that show a new MacBook Pro. 

The images mentioned above confirm some earlier rumors, especially the OLED touch panel that has been placed on top of the keyboard, apparently replacing the traditional function keys. This touch panel is said to be called "Magic Toolbar" and looks to be contextual, thus changing its functions/the commands displayed based on the app running in the foreground (notifications for background apps will probably be displayed, too). Since the notebook is shown being used with Apple Pay, it supports Apple Pay as well.

Another detail that can be clearly noticed in the images are the speakers located on the sides of the keyboard. The new MacBook Pro is expected to be unveiled tomorrow, at 10 AM, next to a new MacBook Air. New iMacs might arrive as well, so stay tuned for tomorrow's news.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
