MacBook Pro 2016 release date, specs: Siri to come to laptops?


Apple is expected to launch the new generation of the MacBook Pro laptops, the MacBook Pro 2016, at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference in June, with its release date rumored to be slated later in the year. The laptop, as what was rumored, is expected to bring in a number of new hardware and software innovations to the table.

According to reports, Apple might be releasing the new generation of its MacBook Pro laptops in time for the company’s annual WWDC event, seeing that it has been more than a year since a MacBook Pro laptop was announced.

There will be two models that fans might get their hands on. One will have a 13-inch display, which was said to be slated for release immediately after the alleged launch during the WWDC. The other variant will have a bigger screen at 15 inches and will be available for purchase later this year.

As for the specs, the software department may see a major improvement as a report hinted that new generation of the MacBook Pro may sport Siri. If proven true, this will be the first time that the popular digital personal assistant for iOS devices will find its way to the Mac OS. Siri is said to be incorporated in the new MacBook Pro units to make them more user-friendly.

Another rumored feature of the new laptops is support for 4K Ultra HD display resolution. To support this, the MacBook Pro 2016 variants are expected to run under the latest Intel Skylake processors and have the latest graphics cards from either NVIDIA or AMD, which will give the machine better graphics streaming and display quality.

Apple’s WWDC will kickoff on June 13 at 10 A.M. PT/1 P.M. ET.
