Apple seems to be all set to unveil the MacBook Pro 2016, a much-awaited refresh which could also see the MacBook Air. Regardless, the debate right now is on how good the upcoming mobile device is compared to previous versions and Microsoft’s popular Surface Book 2.
So far, Apple has kept a tight lease on what to expect though the rumored features are likely to be spot on. That said, most customers are likely contemplating on selling their old devices to prepare for a new MacBook Pro 2016.
The Potential And Rumored Features Of The MacBook Pro 2016
Apple is expected to release a couple of MacBook Pro 2016 variants – a 13-inch and 15-inch variant. As far as the processor to be used, most are hoping that both would come with the latest Intel Kaby Lake chips.
This will largely depend on whether the chips made it on time on Apple’s end. Should there be discrepancies, the best to look forward to is that the 15-inch variant will likely have Kaby Lake installed plus a possible AMD Polaris GPU chip, BGR reported.
Other than that, other features include the celebrated OLED touch strip, Touch ID, a MagSafe 2 power port, USB-C ports and a Force touch trackpad, ZDnet reported. The MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to sport a thin aluminum shell which brings up the fate of the 3.5 mm jack.
As most know by now, the removal of the 3.5 mm jack was a key factor in making the iPhone 7/7Plus thinner. There is no confirmation if the feature will be taken out considering that Apple can exclude other areas for the MacBook Pro 2016.
There are great expectations for the MacBook Pro 2016 and hopefully, Apple can come out with a good-as-advertised laptop solution. The word out is that the MacBook Pro 2016 could be out this October unless unforeseen circumstances force the Cupertino company to delay its release for November.
