So far, there isn't a lot quite known about the Apple MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Release Date, only that it is has to happen. After all, the MacBook's unveiling is an annual event for Apple, even if it could possibly be a little late this year. This is everything that is presently known about the Apple MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 2016 Price, Rumors, and Release Date.

A report from Vine Report matches what a lot of sources have been saying about Apple's plans. That is, Apple intends to unveil new products such as the iPad Air 3, a smaller version of the iPhone (perhaps a return to their 4-inch model), as well as a new version of the Apple Watch (or perhaps new Apple Watch straps). Considering that during March of last year, at a "Spring Forward" event, was when Apple unveiled their 2015 MacBook Air and MacBook Pro versions, that Apple would do the same thing here.

However, there are reports coming in saying that perhaps Apple might wait until their Worldwide Developers Conference (sometime in June 2016) where they will reveal the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro for the year 2016. Yes, that does seem a little late, but that might be for a good reason.

It is possible that the MacBook Air could add three more products to the lineup which include the 12-inch, 13-inch, and the 15-inch version. The issue is that the MacBook Pro could use a little redesigning, so why not? I'm not certain if MacBook fans will tolerate the slight delay, and if there are people who actually buy a new MacBook per year, then some money could be saved.

This does mean that with the announcement coming in the summer that the new MacBooks won't hit until the fall. At least they will be available by Black Friday, which was a popular rumor that the 2016 MacBooks would actually be released or at least announced at that time.

There seems to be a lot of rumors about what the new MacBook will have. Many are saying that the MacBook Air 2016 will have support for USB Type C and Thunderbolt connectivity for some smaller models. Then there are the rumors that perhaps the iteration of MacBooks could have a Retina display with 3D touch.

Then there is always the rumor that there be an update to Skylake, Intel's sixth-generation range of Core laptop and desktop PC processors. There have also been talks to extend the battery length, and this would be to support the additional power for a Retina or even a 4K display.

So, how much will the cost? That is the big question. Price cuts last fall led to the previously mentioned rumors of newer 2016 models showing up in late 2015. It is possible that the cuts were made to compete with other laptop markets, as Apple does have quite a new challenging competitor as Microsoft has really stepped up their Surface Pro series.
