MacBook Pro 2016 updates: Device to feature boosts in both aesthetics and power


Apple’s MacBook Pro 2016 was initially expected to be announced during their recently held event last month. However, because of its absence, the device is now anticipated to appear during the WWDC in June.

Many believe that the newest MacBook Pro will be announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2016 this June in order to spread the timing of the releases of different gadgets from Apple. At this point, there are numerous rumors surrounding the said gadget, although none of it had been confirmed yet.

One of the most anticipated specifications of the MacBook Pro 2016 is its upgraded chipset as it is expected to carry Intel’s latest processor, Skylake, similar to other notebooks from Dell, Microsoft, and HP. This is expected to be complemented by the latest operating system, OS X El Capitan. With these two together, the upcoming device is anticipated to have improved efficiency, speed, and battery life.

Aside from these, the MacBook Pro 2016 is anticipated to come in two sizes, a 13-inch variant and a 15-inch version. It is also rumored to be Apple’s thinnest version yet. Beyond the aesthetics, the upcoming gadget is also said to have a leeway for an external graphics card, more USB Type-C ports, as well as a larger built-in storage, speculated at around 256GB.

On top of these, the MacBook Pro 2016 is also expected to feature a TouchID Fingerprint sensor, similar to what is seen in the company’s new iPhones and iPads, as well as a Siri functionality.

The MacBook Pro 2016 may be announced in June at the said event. Along with this, there are also rumors that the company will launch a MacBook Air 2016, although it has mixed perspectives as some believe that Apple is discontinuing the said line. Nonetheless, fans will still have to wait for about two more months to find out.
