Rumors suggest that Apple is going to release MacBook Pro 2016 this coming November. This means that we are only three months away from seeing the new Apple laptop. The new MacBook Pro 2016 will be one of the first devices to use the new seventh generation Intel Kaby Lake chipset.

Taking all the rumors in the internet, the MacBook Pro 2016 will be completely predesigned and packed in just about every feature you think. The overall case is said to be slimmer and the USB-C availability will be the silver bullet connectivity. MacBook Pro 2016 will also be equipped with Siri, according to NeuroGadget.

Siri is a computer program that works as an intelligent personal assistant and knowledge navigator. Siri is part of Apple's iOS, watchOS, and tvOS operating systems. Siri uses natural language user interface to answer questions. In other words, MacBook Pro 2016 users will now have their own assistant.

MacBook Pro 2016 promises to have a better performance. In fact, a report in Parent Herald states that a Lightning Port in MacBook Pro 2016 will be available. Also, it is said to be dropping the audio jack from iPhone 7 and Intel's Kaby Lake processor is likely to be inside including the LTE feature that makes the MacBook Pro connect to the internet without WiFi connection.

However, according to TheNextWeb, some of these rumoured MacBook Pro 2016 specs are nonsense. OLED bar is definitely not happening, according to the people familiar with Apple's plans.

The rumored MacBook Pro 2016 lightning port is said to be a silly idea, while the Bluetooth headphones are very reliable. Sources stated that the lightning port confuses data transfers methods.

However, the LTE feature might not be available in the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016. According to reports, Apple will allow users to connect via data connection by using the tethering feature of the iPhone.

Fans should also not forget about the Touch ID. Apple recently created a way to authenticate MacBook log-in via Apple Watch, which can also be used as Apple pay transactions on the Web. However, it should be noted that these are all mere speculations since Apple hasn't announced the official specs of MacBook Pro 2016.
