MacBook Pro 2016 release date: Next gen laptop launching in June during Apple WWDC


Over the course of the past few months, Apple has been plagued with a lot of rumors surrounding both their brand new products as well as succeeding iterations of longstanding series. With the March event already out of the way unveiling a couple of gadgets, tech aficionados are now setting their sights on other much awaited releases including the MacBook Pro 2016.

Latest reports point out that the supposed release of the next generation MacBook Pro will happen during the annual WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference). Despite the lack of information specifically for the Pro laptop, Mac Rumors speculates that with Apple annually holding the event, there is a chance that they will be using the occasion as a stage to finally launch the aforementioned device.

The article also cites that with the second calendar quarter ending on June 30, there is a higher possibility that the Cupertino-based company will be releasing the brand new Macs to amplify their statistics for the third quarter and hopefully for the rest of the year.

As earlier reported, there were rumors swirling around that Apple could have released the MacBook Pro 2016 during their March event, but it seemed to be the wrong platform as the tech giant used the event solely for the launch of their consumer-friendly devices, and the Pro 2016 is more specifically designed for professional use.

Shall the laptops drop in June, users can expect two variants  one with a 15-inch display and the other a 13-inch. Both, however, are rumored to have the Skylake processor which can reportedly enhance battery lfie.

Specification-wise, the laptops are said to feature Retina Displays, Force Touch enabled touchpads, USB Type C, Touch ID fingerprint scanners, Siri for Mac, as well as support for external graphics and dual band a/c WiFi.

The 15-inch model is purported to retail at $2,800, while its smaller iteration may be at $1,500.
