It was highly doubtful that the MacBook Pro 2016 launch would take place at the WWDC. However, many had hopes that the offer would at least be mentioned at the event if nothing else. Apple loyalists were disappointed with a no-show of the product once again this year.
It may serve to look back at what credible analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had shared about the MacBook Pro 2016 release date and specs. As noted by Macworld, the analyst predicts that the Pro model this year will land during Q4, which reportedly is from the month of July to September for the Cupertino tech giant. It looks like his speculations could again be spot on with the final version of the MacOS and the iPhone 7 also expected to land during fall.
Reportedly, Kuo shared, “While long overlooked, the MacBook line is the brightest spot for Apple’s 2016 rollouts.” He also indicated that the MacBook would sport a revamped design and will be lighter and sleeker in comparison to its predecessors. A recent leak unearthed by Cult of Mac showed off an OLED Touchpad right above the keyboard where the function keys sit. This is exciting since it gives users the liberty to customize with the keys they employ most.
The popular analyst predicted that the MacBook Pro 2016 will also arrive with Touch ID onboard. Over the months, reports have reiterated these potential specs and fans can expect to see more leaks giving insights as the launch inches closer.
The company may also decide on not launching the laptop amidst much fanfare since in the past it has released models just by simply sending out a press release. Alternately, the rumored spec sheet suggests that the offering will be something to watch out for, which indicates that it could indeed be arriving with a bang further increasing the confusion on the release.
Keep an eye out for more details on the MacBook Pro 2016 release date and specs since it?s currently shrouded in uncertainty.
