MacBook Pro 2016 release is likely to happen earlier in order to save the market of other Apple products. Apple has encountered sales fall. Apple fans are not buying the existing MacBook Pro models because they want to purchase MacBook Pro 2016.

Apple shipped 4.8 million MacBooks units in 2015. However, in 2016, Apple was only able to ship 4.4 million MacBooks. The US market is MacBook?s favorite destination though Apple has lost its charm in the US market as well. In 2015, around 2 million MacBooks were sold in the US. However, this year, only 1.9 million MacBooks are sold. Dell, Asus, HP and Lenovo?s previous year models have performed better than MacBooks in terms of sales, according to IDC?s analysis. On the list of top five brands, Apple has taken the last position.

All major brands have released their 2016 model laptops and they are doing well in the market. Apple is left with no other option than releasing MacBook Pro as soon as possible in order to boost its sales rate. ??We see MacBook as a stronger candidate for becoming a theme given solid growth in the business segment, as well as a potential upgrade to hit the market in 1H16,? KGI?s Ming-Chi Kuo predicted earlier.
