Many are looking forward to the unveiling of the next generation of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Despite Apple’s decision to stay tight-lipped about the details of their lines of MacBook, the powerful laptops remain a hot item that continuously makes headlines in reports and forums. However, it seems that MacBook Pro 2016’s arrival is imminent.
According to Yibada, the Cupertino-tech giant had started sending media invites for their upcoming event on Mar. 21, 2016. The report suggested that in the said event, there are high chances that Apple will introduce MacBook Pro 2016 because the company usually releases new laptops at the same time of the year.
In the upcoming event, Apple will focus on iPhone SE and iPad Air 3. There are also rumors that the company might organize another Mac event for the laptops, but tech experts are convinced that MacBook Pro will be unveiled on March 21.
The company will no longer support 2009 Xserve, mid-2010’s 17-inch MacBook Pro and 2010’s 15-inch MacBook Pro, per MacRumors. Thus, there is no doubt that MacBook Pro 2016 will arrive soon because Apple has already updated its vintage and obsolete products page with three iterations.
Parent Herald previously reported that MacBook Pro would arrive in the coming weeks. There are speculations that the powerful laptop will sport the new Skylake processor and will be equipped with the Touch Screen feature.

Meanwhile, per Ubergizmo, a new ultra-fast memory technology called Optane will be available next year. If Apple will adopt this technology, their MacBook storage will be 1000 times faster. Optane promises a faster speed by a thousand times compared to conventional flash storages by using 3D Xpoint technology.
Per the report, Optane is compatible with Apple’s NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) storage protocol. In fact, it is already used in its notebook. Thus, if the company opted to use this technology on their next MacBook the transition will not be that difficult.
What do you think of Intel’s latest technology? Will Apple use Optane on their next lines of MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air? Share your thoughts below.
