According to the latest report from the WSJ, Apple won’t completely change the design of the iPhone in 2016. The reporters believe that the company will improve water resistance and make the handset thinner and lighter. Moreover, it is very unlikely that the next-generation iPhone will get a headphone jack. As to the size, both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will resemble the 4.7-inch iPhone 6s and 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus. The report cites KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who earlier this year said that the new iPhone may become 1mm thinner and made other predictions concerning the device.
Apple has begun pulling the 2012 13-inch non-Retina MacBook Pro models from the shelves of Apple Stores in the United States. While the laptops are still available for purchase, they are no longer showcased to customers. They can’t take a closer look at the older devices and test them with their own hands. This may mean that Apple is preparing the ground for the rumored 13-inch MacBook Pro model with an OLED touch panel instead of function keys.
It is Sunday today, which means it's high time I told you about the most popular posts of the last couple of days.

If you like rumors like I do, you might have heard that Apple is reportedly planning to add a new touch-sensitive OLED panel instead of functions key on the new MacBook Pro. Many things point to this, for example, leaked photos of the alleged casing for the laptop or references found in the latest version of Apple’s desktop operating system called macOS Sierra. But what if Apple decides to integrate similar OLED panels into its wireless keyboards? Below you can take a look at the concept showing how everything may look like.
Several new hints that prove Apple is planning to add a new OLED touch panel instead of the function keys as well as the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to the next-generation MacBook Pro have been found in the first developer beta of macOS Sierra announced earlier this week.

Other resources and references to new features are available on a dedicated webpage of Apple’s developer website.
Following the beautiful concepts of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Martin Hajek has released a new 13-inch MacBook Pro concept featuring the rumored OLED panel instead of the function keys.
