September will solely about the iPhone 7, meaning no MacBook Pro 2016 is likely to appear. Apparently, the upcoming event will try not to divide the attention on its products, with Apple following its regular schedule.
As everyone knows, the coming release of the iPhone 7 is on cue. While many MacBook Pro users are eager to see the latest iteration considering it has been four years since a new laptop has come, the best bet is perhaps by the Fall. This was the same call may be the ever-reliable KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
How will Apple announce the MacBook Pro 2016?
With the September event all about the iPhone 7, any update tied up to the new MacBook Pro could be done at a different event or even via simple site announcement. Regardless of what medium Apple uses, the important thing is seeing the iteration.
Right now, all information tied up to the upcoming MacBook Pro has been confined to the rumor mills. That includes a lighter device, an OLED touch screen strip taking the place of the traditional function keys and powerful chips from within.
Will the MacBook Pro 2016 boost Apple’s sagging fortunes?
With the iPhone 7 coming with less stellar specs, it may all be up to the MacBook Pro 2016 to help Apple rise from its downward trend. Everyone is aware that Apple’s sales have been plunging. With that in mind, the Cupertino company is hoping to find a solution to check that skid.
There is, of course, no certainty that the MacBook Pro 2016 can address all that with better hopes in 2017. Leading the pack is the debut of an anticipated redesigned iPhone 8 plus other products down the Apple line.
Hence, for now, it is all about trying to arrest that skid. If not individually, perhaps a combined effort of the iPhone 7 and the MacBook Pro 2016 can at least lessen the free-fall of the Cupertino company.
