Touch-Bar Will Be Eliminated

Bigger, Brighter, HDR Displays
Apple makes point of mounting innovative display technology in each MacBook Pro upgrade, keeping the laptop at the top of the market when it comes to color contrast, accuracy, and brightness. Many are hoping that the Cupertino-based tech company will keep this trend to its upcoming successor of MacBook.
32GB of RAM
One of the major limitations for the power users is being jammed with a maximum of 16GB of RAM, the same maximum volume being offered in the range since 2011. A lot of MacBook owners were dissatisfied in 2016 when Apple publicized the redesigned MacBook Pro featuring 16GB due to Low Power DDR4 (LPDDR4) memory restrictions with Intel’s then-current chips. Even the 2017 MacBook Pro is armed with 16GB of RAM. Many fans are expecting that the MacBook 2018 would be equipped with 32GB of RAM.
