Rumors continue to surround the release of Apple’s MacBook Air 2016 and MacBook Pro 2016, with the latest batch claiming that the laptops will be available just in time for Black Friday sales.
If the rumors are true, the latest MacBook Air and MacBook Pro may several obstacles in experiencing good sales, including great deals for previous Apple devices and other products, The Latinos Post reported. The fact that Apple has started selling its line of previous models further supports this possible release date.
Since Black Friday deals are already being offered, whether Apple will release the laptops on the actual Black Friday is a significant question, according to The Vine Report
The MacBook Air 2016 is rumored to be Apple’s most powerful laptop to date and may be powered by Intel’s Skylake U-chipset. It is also expected to run on El Capitan, the tech giant’s latest operating system.
The MacBook Pro 2016 is also expected to include the same the Skylake processor, though it is expected to come out in December due to a chip that was found under the code AAPLJ951found in El Capitan. Other rumored specifications include two display options (a 13-inch screen and a 15-inch screen) and a much better battery life.
The new laptops have been subjected to rumors ever since Apple decided to skip over their announcement during the company’s unveiling of new products back in September.
Apple fans have been speculating over the MacBook Pro 2016 and MacBook Air 2016’s official launch ever since, making predictions ranging from November to January 2016, The Vine Report noted. Some believe that their release was held off in order to avoid spoiling the iPad Pro’s debut.
