MacBook Pro 2016 Release: RBC Analyst Predicts Faster Skylake Processor-Equipped Device September Release With iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2


MacBook Pro 2016 is reportedly making an appearance in October or November according to an assumption made by RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani. However, speculations surfaced that since Macbook Pro 2016 was not revealed at Apple's event last March and June, it will be released in September alongside iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2.

Daryanani believes that MacBook Pro 2016 refresh may come after the September event of Apple that will see the launch of iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2. The device, according to Daryanani, is expected to sport a thinner 13-inch and 15-inch form factors. Macbook Pro 2016 is also suggested to equip a light emitting diode with new LED touch screen displays that may replace the function keys, iTech Post reported.

More specs of Macbook Pro 2016 include a Touch ID functionality, a USB Type-C port, better image-management software and improved iCloud Drive functions, reportedly. Daryanani mentioned that the device will carry a more powerful graphics processing unit (GPU), which is suggested to be Polaris from AMD. He also noted that the new Macbook Pro device will be integrated with Intel processors and a Sierra Operating System with Siri functionality.

Meanwhile, Daryanani's assumptions support the expectations of KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who is reportedly one of the most accurate analysts. Kuo also believes that MacBook Pro 2016 will carry a thinner figure, a Touch ID and a Type-C port, MacRumors reported. In addition, Kuo expects an OLED touch bar located above the keyboard as well.

Macbook Pro 2016 is expected to sport the faster Skylake processor that was initially introduced into the Macbook line through the 12-inch Macbook 2016. Currently, Apple has not given confirmation and any hints as to when they would actually release MacBook Pro 2016. However, despite the Apple's silence, fans still expect that the new MacBook Pro will hit the shelves within this year.
