In the midst of all the rumors regarding the new version of the MacBook Pro laptop, Apple had recently made the move to silently pull out all of the non-Retina MacBook Pro models from Apple stores and third party retailers.
According to a report by Apple Insider, the legacy model of the MacBook Pro, the one equipped with the spinning optical drive, might be seeing its final days as it will be completely phased out in the market. Apple seems to be making preparations in releasing the new generation of MacBook Pro laptops and is move on from the previous ones.
However, as of now, reports indicate that Apple is only pulling out the non-Retina legacy models from the stores’ displays, thus people can no longer try the older model of the Apple laptop in stores; but the device is still in stock and is still available for purchase.
Apple stores and Apple retailers in the United States have allegedly been slowly pulling out the said model of the MacBook Pro for more than a week now.
While no explanation was given for the pull out of the MacBook Pro stocks, it was speculated that this is due to Apple wanting users to adjust to the new models of the laptop that are expected to come sometime later this year.
There is also no word if Apple only plans to have the current stock of the non-Retina MacBook Pro laptop get exhausted, or if the Cupertino-based company would still set out to produce more of it, at least until before the new model arrives.
The upcoming MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to come without the traditional function keys that had been above the standard keyboard. Instead, rumor has it that it would be replaced by an OLED touch bar, giving users not only easier access to the function keys, but also having the possible option of customizing commands for it.
