The MacBook Pro 2016 could be out in the coming days though the MacBook Air could follow before October comes to an end. The much awaited refresh for the Apple laptops has been long awaited though there could be some things missing when they do come out in the open.

First up is the MacBook Pro 2016 which is likely to launch any day soon. The latest MacBook Pro refresh is expected to come with most of the rumored specs in tow. This includes a USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 ports with the MagSafe 2 the only likely iteration, Mac Otakara reported.

There will be two variants of the MacBook Pro 2016 coming, a 13-inch and 15-inch variant. Interesting at this point would be the actual processor it will be sporting. As mentioned in a previous post, the guess on whether Intel was able to deliver the Kaby Lake processors in time has yet to be confirmed.

The previous Skylake processors are still in stock though the best guess is to see the 13-inch variant with Skylake and 15-inch with Kaby Lake, depending on availability. Other features likely for the MacBook Pro 2016 include the much-talked about OLED touch strip bar to replace the old function keys, a Force Touch trackpad, and Touch ID. There will also be bigger flash storage and an improved battery to back up all the features for the refreshed MacBook Pro 2016. 

As far as the MacBook Air is concerned, it offers pretty much the same thing. There is no credible information on the features and specs the customer-friendly device may carry though it is expected to be a notch lower than the MacBook Pro 2016.

There was mention of a ‘Control Strip’ linked to a trademark filing made by Apple back in September another striking feature that could be interesting to see, Apple Insider reported. Regardless, the features should be officially known in the coming days so stay tuned.
