MacBookPro 2016 Update: Apple To Release This October; New Specs And Features Leaked
Apple announced the release of the brand new iPhone 7, and Apple Watch, September 27. Fans of the brand were quick to point out that there was not even mention of the coveted MacBook Pro.
The company had been known to be really secretive about their product launches and as always, had stayed mum about any information regarding the MacBook range. That changed however, when a loose lipped case manufacturer twitted the supposed release date of the MacBook Pro.
People who saw the tweet assumed that the MacBook Pro will hit the shelves come October 27 which is also consistent with the recent rumors of an October product launch. This leaked release date caused the sales of Apple laptops to plummet down as people are more eager to buy the newer models.
Speculations about its feature have surfaced for months now and one of the most consistent rumor is the OLED touch bar that will replace the function keys on the upper part of the keyboard. It was also rumored that Apple will release a 13-inch and 15-inch variant but it is not clear yet if the 3.5mm headphone jack was removed.
The new MacBook Pro will also have a Touch ID power button which will be a first for the product line. It is highly speculated that Apple is not using NVidia graphics this time but rather, they will use AMD's Polaris GPU. It is also expected to have a thinner aluminum shell and will ditch the MagSafe 2 charging port for a standard USB connectivity.
People are surely excited for the new MacBook Pro's release. The main concern now is if the new MacBook Pro will live up to its hype. Interested buyers will have to be a little bit more patient and hope for an even earlier release.
