Software Development Finalized
Ming-Chi Kuo, a KGI security analyst has previously revealed about the presumed launching date of the two new Retina MacBook Pros referring to fourth quarter of 2016. But before that, Mac Rumors reported that Apple has targetted October 7 as the final stage of software development to be able to launch MacBook Pro 2016 in late October.

MacBook Pro 2016 for Gaming
The business-centric old retina MacBook Pros are well-received mostly by professionals and students. But this time, it seems like Apple is trying to have its share on the gamers' market profitability as the new MacBook Pro 2016 has features fit for gamers.
As Apple prepared for its entrance on the gaming community, the MacBook Pro 2016 is rumored to have the AMD Polaris graphics chipsets that increase the power efficiency of the new macs by 20 percent compared to its predecessor according to Bloomberg. Aside from that, the said chipsets are the best fit inside the thin body of the new mac.
