Apple has been known to be ultra-secretive of its devices’ release dates; however, recent reports are saying that the new Apple MacBooks, MacBook Air, and Pro 2016 may be released at an earlier date next year.
According to Master Herald, there have been reports that Apple is planning to release the new Macbooks early since the company wanted to have a “better position on the market.” Apple normally announces its new hardware around September or October each year; however, the website claims that rumors are saying that the MacBook Air and Pro 2016 will be released a few months sooner.
Realty Today also supported the claims that the new Apple laptops will be launched earlier. According to their report, the current MacBook laptops are being discounted at a great rate, which usually happens if a new follow-up hardware is coming soon. Yibada recently posted new deals for the MacBook Pro Retina from Best Buy, where it was offered at $200 off. The super discounted MacBook Pros have escalated the rumors of the 2016 laptops’ earlier release date further.
On the other hand, the two new MacBook laptops are rumored to have better specs than their predecessor. Latinos Post reported that the MacBooks will have two different versions, a 13-inch and a 15-inch version. Intel Skylake processors are reportedly going to power the laptops, and will have Type-C USB support. The MacBook Air and Pro 2016 are also said to get Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 graphics and the new OS X El Capitan. These are still just rumors, and a lot of changes are expected to happen in between months.
Apple has remained tight-lipped about the rumors regarding the MacBook Air and Pro 2016’s release date and specs, so avid Apple lovers will just have to wait until next year.
