Those hoping for the MacBook Pro 2016 to come sooner may be in for a disappointment. Recent rumors circulating on the web suggests the launch date has been pushed back to November of next year.
Release Date Speculation Rife
Previously, the MacBook Pro 2015 first came out in May 19, 2015. This may have contributed to the assumption that the MacBook Pro 2016 will be out in a similar time frame. Sadly, the most recent gossip suggests otherwise.
In a report last week, Neurogadget stated that the release date was possibly held back to November because Intel was not ready with the processors that are going into the MacBook Pro 2016. While it is fun to speculate, all unofficial information should be regarded with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Other publications such as Latino Post insist that the release date could be in either September or October 2016. Until there are further updates from Apple, it is impossible to know who is right or wrong.
For now, Apple has not officially announced the existence of the MacBook Pro 2016. In fact, the device exists solely in the active imagination of the rumor mill. Still, a successor for the MacBook Pro 2015 is likely even though Apple may choose a different name. For now, consumers will need to wait for more information from the Cupertino-based company.
Possible Specs for MacBook Pro 2016
While Apple has not confirmed details for the fabled device, it is safe to assume that the tech giant will include features from the current MacBook Pro 2015.
First off, the MacBook Pro 2015 boasts Force Touch technology, which should be included in the MacBook Pro 2016. Another possible feature both devices may share is two screen size options - 13 and 15 inch display. These are two popular screen sizes for Apple laptops. Hence, it will be a great surprise if the company deviates from this practice with the MacBook Pro 2016.
