There's no doubt that the MacBook Pro 2016 is one of the most anticipated devices to be released this year and fans are very eager to see the new features of the upcoming laptop. Many fans expected that the MacBook Pro 2016 will be released together with Apple's new iPhone 7 but, sadly, the laptop was a no-show at the latest event Apple hosted.

Lately, there have been rumors that are circulating online that the MacBook Pro 2016 will not be released because Apple might put an end to the Mac line. However, according to a report from MacRumors, Apple's CEO Tim Cook confirmed that they will not stop producing new Macs. In fact, Cook said in an email that they love the Mac and they are very committed to it and fans should stay tuned. This might mean that the MacBook Pro 2016 is still under development.

Why is the MacBook Pro 2016 taking too long to be launched? This is one of the questions frequently asked by Apple fans. There are also reports that the release of the Apple's latest laptop will depend on the processor it will use.

The MacBook Pro 2016 is rumoured to have the latest Intel's Kaby Lake chipset, having this new processor will highly upgrade the laptop's ability to perform tasks compared to its predecessors. But, it is also expected to have a much higher price because of its high specs.

According to a report from iTechPost, the MacBook Pro 2016 might also have an OLED Touch bar instead of using the function keys on the keyboard. It might also have a Finger Print scanner in order to improve its security feature. The Finger Print scanning feature is used on most of the Apple's smartphones and it is not impossible that its new laptop will also have it.

The upcoming MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to have a USB-Type C port and a Thunder Bolt 3 function that is known to its fast data transfers and charging. But, the MacBook Pro 2016 might have its headphone jack removed, following the trend that Apple made to iPhone 7. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more MacBook Pro 2016 news and updates!
