MacBook Pro 2016 rumors spanning a good number of months have given loyalists a good picture of what the Apple offering will bring.
It is being widely believed that the device will be much sleeker and lighter in comparison to its predecessors. Quite a few unique features are rumored to arrive onboard. There are new speculations out there and the source this time around is Jarllytec, an Apple supplier in Taiwan as noted Tech Radar. The supplier has reportedly begun with shipping out new hinges for the upcoming MacBook Pro. These hinges are “metal injection molded” in order to contribute towards making the device sleeker.
According to a report on Ubergizmo, the hinges that are currently being sent out by the supplier are for the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Hinges for the 15-inch model will only ship during Q3. This indicates that the 2016 MacBook won’t be hitting retail stores until Q4 this year. The potential release date does put a dampener on the predictions of the MacBooks launching at the WWDC 2016. While it does seem highly unlikely that the MacBook Pro 2016 will be announced this month, fans can always wait until the WWDC to be absolutely sure.
One of the most interesting features that the laptop is expected to bring is an OLED touchpad which may replace the function keys. What many may appreciate is that the touchpad will enable customizing the function keys. Users can then swap the function keys with the ones that they employ most. The leak also highlighted the presence of 4 USB Type-C ports. The MacBook featured two on the right side of the device and the other two on the left, as well as a headphone jack.
