The Touch Bar could come to a revised version of Apple's Magic Keyboard
This mock-up shows what a Magic Keyboard could look like with a Touch Bar
This ties into a patent filed earlier this year which outlined a wireless keyboard with a Touch Bar like device.
The patent said: “The device may also include a processing unit positioned within the housing, and a primary display positioned at least partially within the housing and configured to display a graphical-user interface executed by the processing unit.
“In some embodiments, the display is an organic light-emitting diode display. The electronic device may be a keyboard device.”
A number of stylish looking renders were also created based on the patent showing how a Touch Bar enabled Magic Keyboard would look.
The Touch Bar dazzled when it was first unveiled with the new Apple MacBook Pro last year.
The touchscreen strip is an independent Retina display capable of changing its appearance based on whatever applications appears on screen at the time.
It is also used to provide programme dependant shortcuts – such as Microsoft Office tools or emojis – that can be accessed just by tapping the touch bar.
The last refresh to the Magic Keyboard came in 2015 so a new version which incorporates the sleek Touch Bar would be a must-have for Apple fans.
All will be revealed at WWDC, which Express.co.uk will be providing full coverage on.
