MacBook Pro 2016 Latest News, Release Date & Update: Kaby Lake Processors Arriving JIT?
By the time this piece goes up, Apple may have already unveiled the latest iPhone 7 to the public. Expected to be alongside it are the Apple Watch 2 and iOS 10 with perhaps a slight possibility that the MacBook Pro 2016 appearing as well.
As covered in a previous post, a more sensible time for Apple to unveil the MacBook Pro 2016 is by the Fall. This is to avoid shared attention considering the iPhone 7 already has its share of bashers due to minimal features in tow.
Speaking of the MacBook Pro 2016, there is one aspect that could disappoint its coming as well. With a refreshed laptop, many are hoping to see a more powerful device though the processor part is still shaky.
It was previously mentioned that scheduling could be a problem covering the actual processor of the MacBook Pro 2016, meaning it could likely come with a Skylake processor. Much of that was covered in a previous post.
Kaby Lake Processors making it?
While the Skylake processors could be a disappointment for some, the fact is that most are hoping that the MacBook Pro 2016 will come with the more powerful Kaby Lake chips. Spotty as they may be, a report from DigiTimes could offer some ray of hope. Per the publication, some laptop manufacturers have gotten their orders of Kaby Lake processors.
This could be tied up with the previous reports that initial batches shipped back in July have been shipped to manufacturers, hopefully, Apple included. The thing here is that the report did not detail which processors the manufacturers had on hand which is a bit off.
Hence, it would be best to take this dish with a grain of salt and keep an open mind on the MacBook Pro 2016 refresh. The important thing is that Apple has a new laptop coming before the year ends, something that can hopefully impress following a long wait.
