Apple's MacBook Pro is expected to acquire a major revamp later this year, according to 9to5Mac.

One of the changes is a thinner and lighter design. The current MacBook Pro design has been around since 2012 and is due for a refresh. The recent design is assumed to draw inspiration from the recent MacBook, and will also feature recent metal injection molded hinges.

Another change is assumed to be the addition of an Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panel, that will replace the row of function keys above the keyboard. These will display different functions, and should change according to application. A TouchID sensor is also expected, even though there were rumors of Apple using the sensor on the iPhone to unlock your Mac. Lastly, there will be a Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C connector and the Thunderbolt will be upgraded to the newer Thunderbolt 3.

The changes are expected to arrive for both the 13-inch as well as the 15-inch MacBook Pro.
