Apple fans were excited when reports came out about the launching of MacBook Air 2016 in the holiday season. However, the tech giant will not likely to release its new laptop this year. In addition, MacBook Pro 2016 release could be delayed.

For MacBook Pro 2016, it is going to hit the market by the spring of 2016, reports Australia Network News.

Even if the laptop's release date is kept hidden by Apple, some consumers uncover specs that seem highly likely to be found on the much-anticipated laptop. The latest Macbook Pro is set to have new Skylake-U chipset.

It is also expected to run the latest OS X El Capitan and sport the new Force Touch technology from Apple.

The launching of MacBook Pro 2016 is delayed because Apple reportedly encountered issues with the production of Intel's Skylake-U processors.

For MacBook Air 2016, reports said the laptop will make an appearance at next year's Worldwide Developers Conference, which will be held in June.

Before, the 2016 MacBook Air was rumored to be released on holiday season, but it did not happen. Some Apple fans were upset, because they expected that they will have the gadget before the end of the year.

The latest MacBook Air will have "sexier" design and "fully redesigned" internal parts across the board. Moreover, it is set to have 12-inch Retina display and extremely low voltage Intel chips for a fanless design.

Rumors said Apple Company is now talking with its suppliers to create these components.

For the story behind its delayed launching, Latinos Post reported that Apple was set to the launch the MacBook Air 2016 on Black Friday. However, there was no MacBook Air 2016 appeared in the biggest shopping day of the year.

Market analysts said Apple avoid launching the product during the recent Black Friday rush since the huge discounts and bargains will overshadow the release. It would be a disaster for the company if they launch the MacBook Air 2016 while consumers are rushing to get discounts on various devices.

With these speculations, there are reports that say Apple Company might not have new MacBook Air laptop this year.

"This wasn't the MacBook Air, but instead leaped past the Air. They kept 'the MacBook Air' around just as they do with older iPhones, but the MacBook is now in the same position as the newest iPhone. That makes me wonder if the Air will go away over time," said Jan Dawson, head analyst from Jackdaw Research.
