The release date of the MacBook Pro 2016 has perhaps been one of the most talked about topics among Apple fans online.
And they have a reason to do so.
It has been more than a year since the laptop has been updated, which has raised expectations that it would finally make its debut in one of Apple’s major launching events this year.
In fact, many were hoping the device would be rolled out as early as the company’s spring event.
This didn’t happen.
Apple followers, however, didn’t lose hope, as they speculated the MacBook Pro 2016 would be rolled out during the WWDC 2016 event, according to Mac World.
Again, this didn’t happen.
The iPhone 7 event took place last Sept. 7 and the MacBook Pro 2016 was again, a no show.
Mac users find it strange that Apple hasn’t shown a sense of urgency in updating one of its best-selling laptops.
A concerned Apple fan, who perhaps couldn’t hide his disappointment, emailed the Cupertino-based company’s CEO Tim Cook and asked if he and his team were “pulling away from the Mac line.”
Fortunately, Cook responded via email and told the fan, “I love the Mac and we are very committed to it,” while adding, “Stay tuned.”
This may not exactly be a confirmation from the Apple big boss that the MacBook Pro is coming in the fourth quarter of 2016, but gives fans hope that the MacBook Pro 2016 could finally be unveiled within this year.
In the meantime, Apple has reportedly been sending out queries to users asking them about the rumored features of the MacBook Pro, particularly on the laptop’s headphone jack.
Mac Rumors reader Blake was in fact asked “Do you ever use the headphone port on your MacBook Pro with Retina display?”
Twitter users were also supposedly asked similar questions regarding the device’s headphone jack, which some surmise, could be a hint that Apple may be planning to do away with this feature.
There are a lot of reasons this could happen, considering that the headphone jack has already been taken away from the latest iPhone model.
