According to the latest rumors surrounding Apple's latest notebooks, it is believed that Apple could launch its eagerly awaited new and redesigned MacBook Pro notebooks in late October.

Apple is said to be working on getting macOS 10.12.1 to support the new notebooks' various features. 

The plan is for Apple to seed one more beta version of macOS 10.12.1 for developer and public beta testing as soon as next week, so that the software update can be finalized by the first week of October.

This would then allow Apple to seed it to its supply chain partners where it can then be loaded into the new notebooks. This would be crucial as Apple would then have to ramp up production to meet demands of the upcoming holiday season.

The new MacBook Pro is rumored to have an OLED touch bar and possibly a Touch ID power button.

Rumors also say that Apple will switch to AMD's new Polaris GPUs for the more powerful 15-inch models.
