If Apple follows a timeline in releasing its products, fans should expect the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016 in June. According to numerous reports circulating all over the internet, the Cupertino-based company could launch the much-anticipated device at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference next month.
Many fans expected the laptop to come out early this year during an Apple event in March. However, followers of the tech giant were left in dismay after the company decided not to launch the device and went on revealing the iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
There have been speculations that the upcoming device will come as the new 12-inch MacBook. According to tech observers, the new laptop could come with the latest Skylake processor from Intel. There are some people suggesting that the forthcoming iteration of the MacBook Pro series will also run on a whopping 8 GB of RAM for additional boost in performance.
The current version of the laptop runs on Broadwell and Haswell processors. Upgrading to a more superior Skylake CPUs could improve the overall performance of the upcoming device.
Meanwhile, the increasing rumor of the MacBook Pro 2016 release was sparked by a recent price cut on the current 13.3-inch MacBook, which was released last year. Best Buy is said to have applied discounts on the current devices, which lead many people to believe that a new iteration of the popular line is coming anytime soon.
According to reports, the new MacBook Pro 2016 could be priced at $1,300. However, top of the line variants, which have advanced specs and features, may have a much higher price than that.
There are also reports that Apple may roll out the new laptop alongside the upcoming flagship smartphone, the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. However, it remains to be seen as Apple has yet to provide specific details with regard to its potential release date.
