Various rumors are circulating around the much anticipated MacBook Pro 2016 but the latest speculations suggest that it might be released early next year or on a much later date in order to give priority to products that have been recently released by Apple.

Speculations are rampant pertaining to the release of the new laptop with recent ones suggesting that its launching currently depends on the 2016 MacBook Air. The device was previously rumored to hit the shelves during the Black Friday sale which did not happen and potential buyers are now counting on the speculated release in 2016.

According to International Business Times, the release of the MacBook Air could take place during the Worldwide Developers Conference which is likely to happen during the first quarter of 2016 which would subsequently push for the release of the MacBook Pro later on.

However, with the release if the iPad Pro last November 11, Yibada reported that analysts are now considering the idea that the device might not be released anytime soon as the Cupertino firm might want the consumers to focus on the tablet for the mean time in order for them to maximize their sales.

The  MacBook Pro 2016 is rumored to house the latest specs with its OS X El Capitan, and Force Touch Technology. As reported by Latinos Post, it is expected to be released with 13 to 15 inch display, Type-C USB Port, and more RAM.

Several reports suggest that it could be released with Intel's Skylake-U chipset, while there are also rumors suggesting that Apple might do away with Intel's processor and go with their homegrown A9X chip or A10 chip instead.

There are also speculations that one of the reasons for the delay of the MacBook Pro 2016 is due to the fact that Intel's processor will not be mass produced until November or December. However, while Apple has not officially released official information, speculations surrounding the release of this new device must be treated with a grain of salt.
