Apple has set a standard in ultrabooks. Its line of MacBook Pro is venerable in today’s world of personal computing, and it has been the product of choice for those that are looking for a well-rounded device that has a slim form factor. However, with the world of mobile computing shifting to thinner devices without the compromise in performance, laptop manufacturers have been hard at work. It’s evident now that high-end offerings feature minimal thickness and a supercharged hardware sheet today. Now, Apple seems to be lagging behind in the trend that it has set, but it looks like it’s beckoning the call of revolution with what seems to be an ultra-thin MacBook Pro 2016 to be released soon.

Nothing is sure at the moment, however, as everything seems to be based on rumours and speculations. According to a report from Digitimes, Apple is planning to launch a new breed of MacBook Pros in the summer. The company could launch it in the Worldwide Developers Conference, which would somehow be soon enough since the event will take place in June. However, it’s also important to note that while Apple has been working on making its products thinner, Digitimes doesn’t exactly have a good track record when it comes to rumours revolving around the California-based company.

Further reports suggest that the company’s plan to outfit the MacBook Pro 2016 with Intel’s sixth generation core processor, the report may not be too much of a stretch and could actually be close to reality. Skylake has been at the top of its game when it comes to power efficiency, and it would allow the company to produce laptops thinner than its current offerings.

There was no sight of the MacBook Pro 2016 during the recent March 21 event on Apple’s grounds. However, with the lineup due for an upgrade, we can probably expect a new successor just around the corner.
