Apple is updating its Mac line after neglect.

The technology giant is holding a press event on Thursday, October 27 at its campus in Cupertino, California.

Apple is widely expected to introduce an updated MacBook Pro. Leaked in an update to macOS Sierra on Tuesday, an OLED touchpanel above the keyboard and TouchID for Apple Pay were shown in images of the new laptop.

Apple will livestream the event beginning at 1pm EST/10am PST.

A new 13-inch MacBook Pro and MacBook are also expected from Apple. While not shipping until next year, Apple could take the wraps off a new iMac and external display at its event on Thursday.

If you're watching through Apple TV, you can watch the stream on the second-fourth generation Apple TV running with software 6.2 or later.

Windows 10 users can watch the event live through the Edge browser, and macOS users can use Safari.
