macOS 10.12.4: beta 2 available, new MacBook Pro suggested

Last night, Apple made the second beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.4. It arrives three weeks after the first pre-release, which brought the Night Shift mode. As a reminder, this feature, added on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with iOS 9.3, allows you to adjust the emission of blue light in order to improve the reading comfort of users at night.

Astonishing when you know that the latest laptops from Apple were released a few months ago. Thus, the Cupertino company could replace the Skylake processor this year with the Intel Kaby Lake on its future MacBook Pro.

As the blog notes, the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar could see the arrival of the i5-7260U and i7-7660U processors, and an Iris Plus Graphics 640 graphics card. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, on the other hand, should have the i5 processors -7267U, i5-7287U, and i7-7567U depending on the model, with an Iris Plus Graphics 650 graphics card. Finally, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar would switch to the i7-7700HQ, i7-7820HQ and i7-7920HQ processors, with an Intel HD Graphics 630 graphics card.
