The tech giant known as Apple is now preparing to launch its latest products and a lot of people are hoping that it will include the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 2016. There have been a lot of speculation regarding this Apple product line, especially with regard to its release date. It is not only the release date being debated right now but also whether or not the laptop will live up to the expectations set for it and how much better it will be than the ones that came before it. Moreover, how good will the Apple laptop be against the Microsoft Surface Book 2.
As per usual, Apple has kept mum about any details pertaining to the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 2016, this, of course, has not stopped the rumors that spread like wildfire across the internet. Speculations state that the tech giant will be releasing the MacBook Pro 2016 with two variants, a 13-inch, and a 15-inch version. Both will have the Intel Kaby Lake chips under their hoods and the larger of the two will have an AMD Polaris GPU chip on board.
Moreover, other features for the MacBook Pro 2016 include OLED touch script, MagSafe 2 power port, Force Touch trackpad, USB-C ports and Touch ID as per ZDNet.
The MacBook Pro 2016 is also expected to be slimmer than the one that came before it, it will sport a thin aluminum shell. This means that the MacBook Pro 2016 will most likely lose the 3.5mm headphone jack as well. Since the headphone jack playing the role of a sacrificial lamb is what enabled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7Plus to have a much slimmer physique.
