Apple fans are definitely excited about the upcoming October Apple event. Although the Cupertino based company has yet to provide the details regarding the alleged affair, several reports have emerged suggesting that Apple will introduce the new MacBook Pro 2016 during that time. There are speculations saying that the highly anticipated laptop will finally come out before October ends.

The possible release date of the device is said to be on Oct. 24, which is certainly perfect as the holiday season is approaching. The MacBook Pro 2016 was supposed to be launch during the iPhone 7 event early last month. However, the company appeared to have a different plan as they decided to skip the new laptop.

This is going to be an exciting end of the year for Apple fanatics as the company is also expected to release a new 13-inch MacBook Air and its new iMac computer, which is said to have a 5K display capability, aside from the MacBook Pro 2016. What's interesting is that reports are saying that these devices will be launch all at the same time.

Previous reports have already revealed several features of the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016. Several publications suggested that the new laptop will carry an OLED touchscreen above its keyboard, replacing the traditional function keys. The new portable computer is also expected to arrive with Apple's latest operating system, the macOS Sierra.

Meanwhile, fans will no longer see the basic 3.5mm headphone jack on the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016. According to reports, Apple will ditch the audio port and replace it with a new system, which is also the same technology used in the new iPhone 7.

Aside from its amazing specs under the hood, the new MacBook Pro 2016 is also expected to come out with a much thinner and lighter design compared to its predecessor. It is also said to run on Intel's latest Kaby Lake chipset, which is considered as the most powerful processor today.
