Ideally with replaceable keycaps in case these are also unreliable
Tactile Escape “key”
Wedged 13″ Model or un-wedged 12″ Model
The 13″ Non-TouchBar is too heavy
The 12″ battery life leaves plenty to be desired
Two USB-C models have ports on opposing sides
12″ Model gains second USB-C Port
Headphone Jack moves to LEFT side
Headphones have standardized on left cup for the wire.
Native Resolution Bump
Currently all MacBooks and Pros ship with the “Default” resolution set above “Best for Display” native 2X resolution and scaled down. MacBook screens are so far below the 440ppi of the iPhones Plus that I can see this and it’s really not a good experience.
3X OLED Displays
These are coupled because the iPhone X’s OLED pixels are not RGB stripe, but are RG+BG across every two pixels. At the same 2X, this is an overall reduction in resolution, but at 3X it’s comparable/better.
Would also make developing for 3X devices in design apps and the simulator easier
A ~13″ 4K Panel would be 1280@3X=3840 Pixels wide. All models can drive 4K60 Wide Color output so this is not an unreasonable ask for the onboard display.
SD Card Slot
First Party Hub
The most important feature of this hub outside of its reliability compared to third party offerings should be that both the power cable and the cable to the MacBook are removable and interchangeable.
Alternatively, if it only has one USB-C/TB3 port to the MacBook and the unit itself doubles as the standard power brick.
