The upcoming MacBook Pro 2016 is in the center of serious speculations, actually too much. There were rumors last month that suggested that the MacBook Pro (2016) will be getting launched at an Apple event in late March. However, newer reports have rubbished that rumor. Mac World UK now says that the highly anticipated notebook might not get launched at this month’s event.
It is being said that the March event is meant more for the consumers rather than professionals, while the MacBook Pro 2016 is actually more inclined towards professional usage. Also, MacBook launches are usually limited to the MacBooks themselves. Launching the next-gen MacBook Pro alongside the new iPhone SE and other new gadgets might push the notebook out of the limelight, which is the last thing Apple would want.
However, there are people who suggest otherwise. According to Apple Insider, the sudden price cuts in the current MacBook Pro lineup signal that the successor of the notebook might be arriving sooner than later. The Mid 2015 15″ MacBook Pro (2.5GHz 16GB 512GB M370X) costs $2,179 with free shipping, free notebook stand, and zero sales tax for buyers outside New York and those buying from B&H Photo, Apple’s authorised outlet. This price is $320 less than its original price, which is quite significant.
Lastly, there are people who believe that the MacBook Pro 2016 release date might never arrive. People at Mac Observers announced that even though the debut iteration of the Pro sold well, it wasn’t a huge success and Apple might not be touching the Pro line anytime soon. We don’t really believe that idea, but it’s worth keeping in mind.
Apple, as always, has kept its lips tightly sealed on the release date for the MacBook Pro 2016.
