MacBook Pro 2016 Rumors & Features: What To Expect In Apple's New Laptop?
A leaked report has surfaced this week hinting that tech giant Apple is likely to release a new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air product lines this month.
The report came from Macotakara, a Japan-based website that is privy to Apple's plan, pointed out that the Cupertino-based company will announce a new 13-inch versions of Apple's MacBook Pros and MacBook Air, respectively.
Rhoda Alexander, Director Tablet and Notebook PCs at IHS Markit as quoted saying in the Forbes report, she speculated that Apple's "Production started in the second calendar quarter on refreshes of the 13.3-inch and 15.4-inch MacBook Pro [and] the 13.3-inch MacBook Air."
Alexander's speculation gives credence to Macotakara's claim that Apple will start ship the new devices by October. Amid the fresh details of Apple's new MacBook Pros and MacBoo Air models, another, Apple will apparently ditch the MacBook Air 11-inch model.
Apple will replace all MacBook Pro product lines with a new model that has an embedded feature to support the USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 ports, eliminating the traditional USB-A connector. What is certain though is that Apple's new MacBook Pro would have a significant overhaul in terms of its design, according to Bloomberg.
If the leaked report is true, the new MacBook Pro will be thinner and it will feature a touch screen strip for function keys, both for the Pro and Air models. In addition, Apple's new MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to feature smaller footprint, a departure from the usual design features of existing models.
The device will also have a wider pressure-sensitive trackpad. In terms of graphics processor, Apple's laptop will be equipped with a more powerful graphics processor which will enhance users' experience, particularly the video gamers and video editors.
The soon-to-be-launched MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to feature USB 3.1 Gen 2, dubbed as the fastest port to be embedded in Apple's rumored high-end laptop.
