People have been anticipating for the launch of the new MacBook Pro 2016. Rumors states that MacBook Pro 2016 will be launched this coming September together with the launch of the Apple's new iPhone 7.

According to University Herald, the said launch date is just a bold prediction. The site mentioned that there are many retailers in the U.S. that are giving big discounts to the older models of MacBook Pro, and this made the Apple user believe that that MacBook Pro 2016 will be launched soon.

However, not everyone is excited to get their hands on MacBook Pro 2016. There are rumors that the laptop could possibly fail to deliver all the upgrades it should have. According to The Next Web, the rumored new features such as OLED function keys, Touch ID and the Lightning Port are very promising upgrades, but these would likely not be added to the MacBook Pro 2016.

Rumors also claim that Apple would make the MacBook Pro 2016 simple. Instead of using OLED, the company would use Apple Watch for log-in. In other words, the MacBook Pro 2016 will identify the user of their Apple Watch and the device will unlock automatically when the wearable device is in the required range.

No Lightning port is also expected in MacBook Pro 2016. Sources say that removing the headphone jack and replacing it with the lightning port is not a good idea. Lightning port is a useless idea because the Bluetooth headsets are far better and reliable.

However, the MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to be thinner and lighter. It is also expected to run with the Kaby Lake processor and it is said to have a USB-Type C port, which means that charging and file transfers will become faster.

MacBook Pro 2016 is projected to be launched in September 2016. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more MacBook Pro 2016 news and updates!
