MacBook Pro 2016 release delayed.

MacBook Pro 2016 release is reportedly delayed in November due to several factors.

In absence of an official announcement from Apple, people can only hope that MacBook Pro 2016 release will happen before the year ends. Some experts claimed that the laptop was supposed to be announced in September alongside the new iPhone, but the launch was reportedly delayed in November because of some factors.

One of the probable reasons of the delay of MacBook Pro 2016 release is due to the release of iPad Pro 2. Apple is rumored to launch the second generation of its tablet-laptop hybrid iPad Pro. The new MacBook was delayed to make way of the tablet and to prevent in from cannibalizing the sales.

In line with the alleged release date next year, MacBook Pro 2016 may give way to the rumored iPad Pro 2 as the upcoming laptop may steal the spotlight from the hybrid tablet. The tablet may appear inferior side-by-side the laptop.

Another reason cited by experts is the integration of high end features in the laptop. There is a pressure to Apple to pack stellar features to set it apart from other laptops flocking the market. One of the features bound to land in the new MacBook Pro 2016 is an OLED touch bar. However, the development of such feature may take a while than expected.

Similar to OLED touch bar, MacBook Pro 2016 is rumored to pack Intel?s Kaby Lake processor. However, the said processor will be released later this year. If rumors proved to be true, the release of Intel?s chipset is just in time for a launch next year.

There is no official confirmation from Apple regarding the specs and features of the upcoming laptop. Moreover, Apple has not announced the official MacBook Pro 2016 release date.
