The second part of October has arrived and couple weeks from now, the expected Macbook Pro 2016 should soon arrive. Nevertheless, news surrounding the popular Apple laptop has been very limited. Previously, it was reported that, one of the main reasons why the apparent launching of the laptop is due to the integration of a new OS called the macOS 10.12.1. The said update can be related to newly installed hardware of the Macbook Pro 2016 mainly the Touch ID support and OLED touch bar that will replace the function keys.

Interestingly, news that Apple is actually shifting the Polaris graphics chips from AMD will be witnessed on their upcoming, high end 15-inch models. In late September, MacRumors reported that, Apple has seeded one more beta version of the MacOS 10.12.1 for public beta testing, before they can finally use it on the revolutionized Macbook pro 2016.

Because Apple wanted the new laptop to be a top of the line device, a support on the MacOS 10.12.1 in the form of of MacOS 10.12.2 will also arrive in later part of October. Whether they plan on doing this in a form of another public beta test, or release it as a day one update; the idea was not confirmed. Meanwhile, the website also hinted that, apart from the revolutionized Macbook Pro 2016, a Macbook Air with USB-C port and new iMacs will be introduced at the event.

Unfortunately, Apple has also announced the end of their journey for devices like iPhone 4, 2010 13-inch Macbook Air, mid 2009 AirPort Time Capsule and third-generation AirPort Extreme. MacRumors confirmed that, Apple has included these devices on their obsolete list and has ceased support for its hardware parts. October 27, 2016 is the target date of Macbook Pro 2016 release date.
