An upgrade to the MacBook Pro is long overdue since the offering has been conspicuous by its absence at multiple Apple launch events including the September 2015 and quite recently the March conference that brought out the 4-inch iPhone SE. The MacBook is now expected to make an appearance at the annual WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) scheduled for June 13-17. While the spotlight is on the software during WWDC, the fact that the MacBook Pros haven’t appeared yet has led to many believing that the offering will be announced in June. Let’s take a look at what the MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to bring for Apple loyalists eagerly waiting for its arrival.
As noted by Know Your Mobile, the MacBook Pros may arrive in the traditional sizes: 13-inch and 15-inch. There have also been contrary rumours suggesting that Apple may turn things a bit and instead deliver 14-inch and 16-inch screens in the same sized chassis as the current models. This can be achieved by reducing the bezels around the screens. Previous reports have stressed on the idea that the MacBook Pro 2016 may hide an Intel Skylake sixth-generation chipset under its hood to deliver the performance that Apple fans expect.
Additionally, the device may boast of multiple USB-C ports or even a USB 3 port and new Thunderbolt 3 ports. A report on Mobipicker also indicates that the upcoming Pro model may well be embedded with a new AMD GPU. It is being widely accepted that while there won’t be any radical changes in the design, the Pro 2016 models are expected to be sleeker and of course faster and powerful than its predecessors. Reportedly, buyers may also get the option of getting their hands on a Pro 2016 drenched in a shade of gold, but take this bit of information with a lot of scepticisms.
While some speculations are quite plausible, others not so much. But fans can always hope. Tell us what you are expecting from the MacBook Pro 2016; share your thoughts in the comments section below.
