Schematics stolen from Apple supplier Quanta Computer by ransomware gang REvil seemingly confirm that MagSafe, an SD card slot, and HDMI will be coming to a future MacBook Pro.

On April 20, REvil posted on the dark web that it had obtained stolen documents revealing details of upcoming Apple Watch, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro models. The group is threatening to leak the documents unless Apple pays a ransom.

AppleInsider was able to independently view the documents that have already been leaked on the dark web. While it isn't possible to verify their authenticity, they appear genuine and filled with deeply technical information.

If legitimate, the documents do appear to show the I/O of an upcoming MacBook Pro model. On the right side of the machine, there's an HDMI port, a Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C port, and an SD card reader. The other side of the I/O setup includes two additional Thunderbolt 3 ports. Additionally, the schematics show what appears to be a MagSafe charger on the side with the two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

The leaked schematics contain many other apparent technical details about the upcoming device. For example, at least one leaked schematic shows a MacBook Pro model without a Touch Bar. Like the MacBook Air, the model has a dedicated key slot for Touch ID.
