New that the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as the Apple Watch Series 2 are all announced and are being launched worldwide, what will Apple announce next? According to rumours, the Cupertino company will introduce their next generation MacBook Pro computers as early as October 2016.
According to MacRumors, Apple is “moving rapidly toward a launch of the new MacBook Pro models” and its latest macOS 10.12.1 update is focused on preparing the OS to support the rumoured hardware features such as Touch ID, an OLED touch bar, and more. MacRumors also says that Apple will seed one more beta version of its macOS 10.12.1 to developers and public beta testers early next week so that it can be ready to be loaded into the new hardware by the end of next week.
We’ve seen several rumours about new MacBook Pro models. On top of the new OLED display touch bar that will replace the function keys above the keyboard, a new Touch ID power button, Apple is also rumoured to use AMD’s new Polaris GPU so it can keep the machine’s thickness down; Apple is currently using Nvidia graphics on its current generation of MacBook models.
Of course, all these are still rumours, and the timeline could change. If this rumour is true and everything works out accordingly, the new MacBook Pro models may be ready to ship to customers in the second half of October. MacRumors also says that Apple will be announcing new MacBook Air models with USB-C Ports, and new iMacs with AMD graphics before the end of this year. It is unclear if the company will announce these devices along with the new MacBook Pro. Whatever it is, if you are planning on getting a new MacBook, it’s best to wait and see what Apple has got up its sleeves.
