MacBook Pro 2016 Release Date Confirmed For October? Apple Surveys MacBook Pro Users About Headphone Jack, Battery Life & Other Ports!
Apple did not even mention the MacBook Pro 2016 during the recently concluded Apple event disappointing gadget freaks who have been waiting with bated breath for the purported laptop's arrival.
The said event centered on the long overdue iPhone 7 instead. However, the optimistic MacBook fanbase is now speculating that the highly anticipated notebook will be unveiled next month at an alleged Apple technical event.
Aside from the new iPhone which was reviewed unfavorably by several tech analysts citing the phone's dull tweaks and updates, the company also unveiled the latest iteration of its Apple Watch, which hardly boasts any update from its precursor.
On that account, avid fans are now hazarding a guess that the next MacBook Pro could have suffered the same fate which is aforementioned to be unveiled this October, per VineReport.

Further cementing this possibility is another report from iTechPost that claim Apple's CEO Tim Cook teased the imminent debut of the MacBook Pro 2016 in his reply to the mail sent by an Apple fanatic to seek information about the future of the Mac series. The report further claims that Cook dropped some major teasers that hinted the release date will happen before the end of 2016.

Apple has already eliminated the headphone jack from the iPhone, so it won't be surprising if the trend continues to a slew of other Apple devices.
Aside from asking about the headphone jack, Apple is also putting out feeler questions about battery life, the SD card slot and other ports.
If rumors doing rounds are anything to go by, Apple will release a revamped MacBook Pro with an overhauled chassis and an OLED touch as early as next month.
