The new patent suggests that MacBook Pro might get launched with the new M1X processor along with an Apple pencil. The design by Sarang Seth via Yanko Design presented the idea of MacBook Pro having a space for Apple pencil on top side of the keyboard. The new design gave an idea of already existing touch bar to be shifted on the right side, while using the extra real estate to house the Apple pencil.
However, it needs to be noticed that this idea is still not officially announced and may vary when it is finally launched. The company added mini-LED display panel, but is in no plan to add touchscreen capability anytime soon.
