2015 13-inch MacBook Pro 29

Apple recently introduced the all-new MacBook and a reworked MacBook Air line, and now it appears the Cupertino-based company has a few more computer updates on the way.

According to latest reports, a revamped 27-inch iMac will debut later this week alongside a 15-inch MacBook Pro refresh.

It has been suggested that the 15-inch laptop will pair Apple’s new Force Touch trackpad with a Intel’s fifth-gen processor and enhanced graphics processing units.

Both devices have been tipped to not only make an official appearance, but go on sale this Wednesday, May 20.

The 15-inch MacBook Pro updates will reportedly echo those bestowed on the device’s 13-inch sibling earlier this year.

The introduction of a Force Touch trackpad will see the Mac echo the Apple Watch in being able to better differentiate between small and large amounts of pressure.

Making use of four integrated sensors, the Force Touch tech offers more tactile feedback, with different select pressures able to be attributed to different tasks.

According to 9to5Mac, it is currently unclear if the iMac update will incorporate the existing Retina display-packing model or just its standard screened siblings.

It is currently unclear if either refresh will follow the new MacBook and adopt the new USB Type-C connection port.

Apple has yet to comment on the claims.
