Apple MacBook Pro 2016 release date, rumors: Mac refresh scheduled before the start of holiday season


Apple made it known to the world that it is not ready to pass on the baton of smartphone supremacy when the company launched the iPhone 7 and its bigger sibling, iPhone 7 Plus earlier this month. With the year almost coming to a close, will the Cupertino-based technology giant do the same with its premium entry in the laptop computer market? For the millions of followers and users of the MacBook Pro, the absence of this year’s new iteration during the iPhone 7 event was surely a disappointment. However, it looks like the laptop is poised for a coming-out party right before 2016 ends.

The best proof of the MacBook Pro 2016’s imminent release is a report from MacRumors that claimed that Apple is gearing up for a bunch of refreshes for the company’s Mac lineup, which means the MacBook Pro should be a part of it. The report added that the new releases are intended to be delivered to retail stores right before the holiday season. So for those hoping to get a new laptop this Christmas, they might as well put the MacBook Pro 2016 on their wish list.

As far as Apple is concerned, the main focus, according to rumors, is the development of the MacBook Pro. Per IB Times, the American company wants to finish the production of the laptop the soonest possible time so that it can catch up with the impending release of the macOS Sierra version 10.12.1. This target is feasible because the new version of Apple’s operating system still hasn’t been released and the only progress right now is the fact that it already is in its beta stage.

Even though no confirmation or official information regarding the release of the MacBook Pro 2016 exists, there seems to be some kind of confidence and optimism from fans that it will be arriving before the end of the year.
