Apple has announced that after the launch of their smartphone flagship models iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, there will be more gadgets that will hit the stores in the future including the touted MacBook Pro 2016.
Although the Cupertino-based tech giant has not officially revealed the schedule of the release window, some reports claim that the replacement for the current 13.3-inch version may come just in time for Christmas. It may also be accompanied with the new generation MacBook Air and iPad Air 3.
On the other hand, others suggest that the device may arrive during the first quarter of next year in order to avoid any possible sales competition with their products that are gaining traction among consumers.
It remains to be seen on what dates Apple will follow but when it comes to specification, rumors have it that there will be two variants to be offered a smaller 13-inch display and a slightly bigger one at 15 inches. Both are predicted to have the latest operating system called OS X El Capitan.
For added features, the MacBook Pro 2016 may have an improved battery life, better and more responsive Force Touch system and support for USB Type-C port. The retail price tag may range from $1,500 to $1,699.
On a related note, Apple’s marketing chief Phil Schiller recently talked on a rare interview with Mashable about the intense collaboration between parties that makes their products come into fruition.
He shared that the times have changed as the industrial and engineering teams within the company now work hand-on-hand more.
He said, “From the beginning, the Mac has been about Apple taking responsibility for the whole thing: hardware, software, how applications can work and, increasingly, Internet services. But that means something different today than it did 20 years ago.
“Today, those teams are not only integrated and designing something together, they’re actually thinking of features that could only exist because of that integration and solving problems that could only be solved because of that unique advantage.”
