Macbook Pro 2016 Release Date To Happen Next Month At Apple's WWDC 2016?

The Macbook Pro 2016 release date is believed to happen by next month. Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference 2016 (WWDC) will be on June 13.

Tech Times reported that the Macbook Pro 2016 release date will most likely be happening at the upcoming event next month. The publication noted that the WWDC 2016 would be the perfect venue to unveil the highly-anticipated product.

Last year, Apple released the latest Macbook Pro laptops. The 13-inch model launched last March and the 15-inch version arrived in May.

"MacBook is the thinnest and lightest Mac we have ever made and it's our vision for the future of the notebook," Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, said in a statement. "Customers are going to love this update to MacBook, with the latest processors, faster graphics, faster flash storage, longer battery life and a beautiful rose gold finish."

The Macbook Pro 2016 is said to have sixth-generation dual-core Intel Core M processors up to 1.3 GHz, with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz, and faster 1866 MHz memory. The device can now "deliver up to 25 percent faster graphics performance" with its new Intel HD Graphics 515.

It has about 10 hours of wireless web browsing capabilities and 11 hours of iTunes movie playback. The company has also made 8 GB of memory standard for all versions of the 13-inch MacBook Air.

Moreover, recent price cuts for last year's 13.3-inch Macbook seem to point to the upcoming Macbook Pro 2016 release date. There are speculations that the upcoming laptop will be priced at around $1,300.

According to IBT, it is possible that Apple will launch 13-inch and 15-inch versions of the MacBook Pro 2016. Both are believed to come with slimmer chassis.

The device may also sport new GPU products from AMD and Nvidia. The MacBook Pro 2016 is rumored to feature a touch-sensitive keyboard without physical keys. "The surface of the keyboard will be able to recognize touch pressures of different levels and deliver feedback accordingly," the website wrote.
