Apple's just released macOS Sierra 10.12.1 update brings changes that suggest the company will be updating the MacBook Pro with an OLED touch bar as rumored.

The virtual keyboard includes different keyboard images files that represent the physical key layouts used by various Apple devices. Previously each included a row across the top for function keys, Escape and a power or eject key.

In yesterday's 10.12.1 update to Sierra, a new set of assets was discovered by MacRumors reader Gabriel Lorin, revealing an updated physical keyboard layout coming for machines supporting the new operating system version. Three additional sets of layout files are included in system resources on macOS 10.12.1, with each image depicting a virtual keyboard that lacks the standard tactile row of function keys.

It's widely rumored that Apple's new MacBook Pro will replace the function key row with a customizable OLED touch bar, perhaps called the Magic Toolbar. Check out some renders here!

Apple is set to unveil its new Macs at a special 'hello again' event being held on Thursday at 10:00am PT. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

It may not need a mechanism in which breaks making the keys unusable compared to what the touch bar does, plus we may see new features than just being a replacement for keys.
