Apple’s MacBook Pro lineup needs a much-asked-for update, and it is being said that Apple will be launching the new MacBook Pro 2016 this year. And if you are an Apple fan, you should know that the WWDC 2016 in San Francisco, California will be held from 13th to 17th June. Rumors say that the 2016 MacBook Pro will be unveiled at this event.
A ChristianTimes report tells us that the present MacBook Pro 2015 is getting price cuts and is now available at a more affordable price than when it was launched last year. This clearly suggests that the stocks are being cleared to make space for the upcoming MacBook Pro (2016). It is also being said that the new 2016 Pro will come in a 13-inch and a 15-inch model, and it is possible that the 13-inch model might be an affordable laptop. If Apple prices it well, the 2016 MacBook Pro will surely give a tough fight to Microsoft’s Surface Pro 5.
Neurogadget reports that the upcoming MacBook Pro models will be powered by Intel’s sixth-gen Skylake processors that have debuted in the Apple family with the MacBook 2016. Skylake CPUs will replace the Broadwell processors and will increase the overall performance considerably. Also, the processors will help improve the battery life significantly. Apple will use the latest and faster SSD and GPU technologies for speedy performance.
It is being said that the MacBook Pro 2016 will be slimmer and lighter than the MacBook 2016 (12″). Even though that seems unlikely, we are ready to believe that the new models will be lighter and thinner than the Air lineup. This is why it is being said that the MacBook Air 2016 series might never happen and Apple may kill the lineup altogether. A report by NewsEveryday says that new MacBook Pro (2016) will come with USB-C ports along with Thunderbolt 3.0, touch sensitive keyboard, and OS X 10.12.
Apart from the next iteration of the MacBook Pro, Apple will also unveil the next versions of iOS 10 and OS X (or Mac OS) at the WWDC 2016. We might also see the Apple Watch 2 at the event, so stay tuned for more updates.
