Apple Inc. fans believe the company hasn’t rolled out a decent upgrade for its Macbook Pro in years. That all stands to change in 2016, though. As usual with Apple releases, not much is known about the 2016 Macbook Pro. However, judging from what the rumor mill is throwing around about the device, Apple fans can look forward to a pretty Amazing upgrade this year.
If online talks are anything to go by, and they can really be spot-on with Apple releases, then this year’s edition of the Macbook Pro will probably be everyone’s dream laptop. It will have a lot of iPhone-like properties too. The rumors suggest that the Cupertino firm is finally coming to its sense and giving in to consumer demands. A number of the company’s newer signature iPhone qualities could be added to product. Further, the Pro will completely distinguish itself from the conventional Macbook this time around.
Touch ID on Apple Mac Pro
Outlets like The Next Web suggest that the company will likely place a Touch ID pad on the product. Some are sure that it will feature on top of the 2016 Mac Pro, perhaps form part of its Apple logo. If not, it would likely be placed near the device’s touch pad. Regardless, the Touch ID feature is an iPhone feature that many fans believe should have been translated onto Macbooks a while ago.
The iPhone is said will be without a standard audio port this year. Instead, the company will move the iPhone 7 sound plug-in to the device’s lightning port. Bearing this, talks that the upcoming Macbook Pro will feature a lightning port is not a far-fetched idea. Leaks have sprung up around the internet depicting Apple Inc.’s new Earpods. Instead of a normal sound jack, they have a lighting port connector at the end. Apple could be adding the feature to accommodate for its next generation of audio plug-in accessories.
Slimmer and fast Apple products
Playing well into Tim Cook and co.’s obsession with minimalism and style, the 2016 Macbook Pro will likely be a bit slimmer. Shaving down the thickness of it’s devices is nothing new for Apple. The iPhone 7, too, is described to be the consumer tech giant’s thinnest an sleekest handset yet.
Stronger and much faster connectivity could be a thing the new Pro. The term “better LTE” is being tossed around all willy-nilly when it comes the product’s online gossip. However, Apple Inc. certainly did file for a new patent that allows it to cram antennae into the hinge of its laptops. This could allow for better Wi-Fi connectivity. Yes, LTE properties should also be instilled on the product too, according to the rumors.
Similarly, the iPhone 7 range will have what is thought to be unrivaled antennae band tech. It should allow for a superior phone connection.
The “silver bullet for connectivity” this year is will be USB-C. Three of these ports will allegedly feature on the product. The convention Macbook has none.
Manufacturers like Apple can finally make use of Intel’s Kaby Lake processors. The chip-maker has confirmed that the likes of Apple Inc. will now be able to get their hands on them.
More color and variety
Those keen on getting their hands on the device should have more colors to choose from. iPhone colors are coming the Macbook Pro, The Next Web insists. You will soon be able to pick a standard Rose Gold or Space Grey device from the 2016 edition Mac Pro onward.
As usual, apple is big on 4K resolution and the Pro MAc will be instilled with some high graphic capabilities that out its earlier models.
It is all mere talks at this stage, but if gossip is anything to run on, then the Mac Pro from Apple Inc. will be a sure crowd-pleaser in 2016.
