MacBook Pro 2016 release date later in 2016 or early 2017 just in time for Intel's Kaby Lake

(Apple)Inset is the 2015 MacBook Pro. Reports suggest that the long-awaited 2016 MacBook Pro might be out early next year, just in time for Intel's Kaby Lake chipset.

Rumors and speculations are still rallying in regarding Apple's long overdue notebook, which is the 2016 MacBook Pro. Even now, Apple users are waiting for some sort of big reveal from the company, just like what they always do whenever they introduce their latest hardware to consumers.

Since the year has just entered its second half, there are now two scenarios as to when consumers will finally see the much-awaited notebook. The first scenario is that Apple might unveil the 2016 MacBook Pro this coming September, together with the company's latest iPhone, and have them ready for consumers before the year ends. Apple may also have it released sometime next year, which is also in the same timeline where the chipset manufacturer Intel will begin to mass produce its next generation processor dubbed as the Kaby Lake.

While Apple is still keeping quiet about the fate of the MacBook Pro, Mac users are wondering what will the rumored MacBook offer them this time. As previously reported, there is a high probability that the notebook will now have iPhone's intelligent assistant SIRI. The notebook might also be sporting a Touch ID sensor for an enhanced security feature, together with the organic light emitting diode (OLED) touch bar which is a popular request among MacBook fans.

Moreover, the new MacBook Pro is also most likely to be preloaded with Apple's new operating system, the macOS Sierra. It is also rumored to have 4K capabilities with a crisp 400 pixels per inch (PPI) and will be powered by Advanced Micro Device's graphics processing unit (GPU). There's a bit of a downside, though. Just like what is rumored with their yet-to-be-announced iPhone 7, the 2016 MacBook Pro might no longer have the audio jack connector and could be replaced with a wireless feature instead.

Meanwhile, as for the notebook's price range, reports are suggesting that it could have a price tag starting off at $1,300 and up.

Fans, on the other hand, will just have to wait until September or they can check Apple's website for the latest updates and news regarding the long-awaited notebook.
