Welp, Apple leaks its new MacBook Pro with Magic Toolbar ahead of this week’s event


Yesterday’s release of macOS Sierra has given us the first look at the new MacBook Pro sporting the long-rumored Magic Toolbar. The image, which is buried within the file structure of macOS Sierra 10.12.1 release, relates directly to the Touch ID functionality embedded within the function-row-replacing strip.

The images, which were initially noted by a MacRumors tipster, are found within the System/Library/PrivateFrameworks directory of macOS Sierra 10.12.1. The leak relates directly to using Apple Pay via the Touch ID sensor embedded in the OLED Magic Toolbar.

As you can see from the image below, the Magic Toolbar is dynamic, allowing it to display contextual content on its display depending on the task at hand. In this case, the toolbar features an Apple Pay interface with instructions for fulfilling a transaction via Apple’s online store.

Apple is expected to unveil new 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros, along with a 13″ version of what will presumably be an updated MacBook Air. Stay tuned to 9to5Mac for more details.
