The 2016 MacBook pro might very well be Apple's most important laptop to date. It has already been more than a year since the device has been properly refreshed, and fans of the powerful notebook are eagerly waiting for the 2016 iteration of the popular machine.
Numerous rumors have emerged about the 2016 MacBook Pro over the last few months, and while some might seem rather outlandish, those that appear legitimate paint a very encouraging device.
2016 MacBook Pro Specs And Features
Being Apple's halo laptop, the 2016 MacBook Pro is rumored to embody everything the best that the tech giant can offer to date. The 2016 MacBook Pro is speculated to carry the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors, which would give the device a significant boost in power. With the Kaby Lake chip's design in mind, it is also speculated that the 2016 MacBook Pro would feature a significantly longer battery life than its current iteration.
One particular feature has been a point of excitement for Apple fans. According to speculations, the 2016 MacBook Pro would be the first Apple laptop to feature an OLED touchscreen above the keyboard in place of the traditional function keys. This OLED bar is speculated to be programmable, thus giving the 2016 MacBook Pro even better capabilities.
2016 MacBook Pro Release Date
While Apple has been very silent about the official release date of the 2016 MacBook Pro, speculations are high that the device would make an appearance sometime October. In fact, recent rumors have pointed October 24 has a possible release date for the device. Numerous Apple fans have raised doubts about the alleged official release date, however, since it falls on a Monday, which is rather unconventional.
What fans agree to, however, is the premise of the 2016 MacBook Pro being revealed sometime during the latter half of October. After all, the iPhone 7's official announcement happened not more than a month ago. Thus, it makes perfect sense if Apple opts to wait for at least a month to pass before unveiling its newest set of products.
