MacBook Pro 2016 rumors: New model with Skylake chip, might be included in the March 21 launch?


Apple has already released the MacBook Pro in two sizes: a 13-inch and a 15-inch. A year after its release, Mac enthusiasts are now anticipating a new variant of the MacBook Pro that might be introduced during the special event of Apple this March 21.

According to Macworld, it is possible that a new MacBook Pro will be introduced during Apple’s event because the tech giant normally releases a new laptop in March. Considering that the last model of MacBook Pro made its debut last year, the report claimed that the time is right for a new one to be made available to the public.

In the same report, it was mentioned that the new MacBook Pro will probably have a Skylake processor. Skylake is the sixth generation chip manufactured by Intel, which can bring exceptional improvements to the new MacBook Pro such as improved overall performance and battery life.

Likewise, Macworld reported that new MacBook Pro is rumored to have a touch screen and detachable feature. If this is true, then this new model can be used as a tablet and a laptop.

To watch the live stream of Apple’s special launch event, a dedicated Apple Event website has been set up by the tech giant. However, those who want to watch must have the necessary hardware and software to be able to access the stream.

Any of these can get be used to accessed the live stream: the Safari browser on Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod running iOS 7.0 or later, a Mac with OS X 10.8.5 or later version, or a Windows 10 PC via the new Microsoft Edge browser. Apple uses HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) for their launch events, and browsers like Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox do not support the said streaming system.
