Rumour


Stephen Hackett has written his thoughts on the rumoured OLED touch bar, which could be replacing the function keys of the next line of MacBook Pros.

The iPhone’s solution was to get rid of all of these plastic buttons, and make the entire experience — keyboard and all — take place in software running on a touchscreen.

I think this flexibility has a lot to do with what Apple is up to with this probably-new MacBook Pro.

He puts forward some reasonable concerns, and it's a point of view I haven't seen from anyone else.

9To5Mac have shared a few 3D renders of what a potential iPhone 7 would look like in Space Black. This comes after the previous rumours about a Deep Blue colour being added, but the same source has since reported that it was mistaken for a darker grey/black option.

The renders show an iPhone 7 in a dark, Space Black colour option. The antenna lines have also been redesigned in the renders, as has been rumoured will happen, while the camera module is also larger.

I absolutely love the idea of having at least a near-black iPhone again, Space Grey just isn't dark enough for me. It also adds more reason for a dark theme in iOS!

I also wish that this Space Black colour (if it would be called that), be added to their range of MacBooks, as I'm a strong admirer of the BlackBook.

The renders were done by Martin Hajek, and you can find loads more on his blog.
