Apple, Microsoft to Unveil New MacBook Pro and Surface PCs this Month

MacBook Pro 2016 vs Surface Pro 5

This month will see Apple and Microsoft come forward with their latest devices in the PC world that consist of a new series of MacBook Pro and Surface models.

However, those of you who would love to see a new Windows 10 Surface Book 2 or even Surface Pro 5 may have to keep waiting a little bit longer before this happens. This wait may go well beyond the 2016 Christmas holidays and into early 2017, with the year’s spring season seen as the most probable time for their launch.

Apparently, new reports can confirm that Microsoft will be holding a major press conference in New York City in two weeks’ time, with October 26th the set date. As for now, it is hard to tell what really this event will be meant for, however, the same report claims that the Redmond Company will not be coming with a new Microsoft Surface Book 2 or even Surface Pro 5. Instead, this will have to wait until next year.

There is even more coming from this report, claiming that the same conference, which has been dubbed Microsoft Windows 10 Event, will not see a new Surface Phone come to life, apparently because the company is still not sure with this move, especially given the low popularity of Windows phones.

Despite all these disappointments, there is still some hope for the Microsoft Surface fan base. The event could see a new series of Surface products unveiled, including the much-rumored Surface All-in-One. Since the main focus of the event will be on Windows 10, don’t be surprised if several peripherals were unveiled as well as giving out more details about the upcoming Microsoft hardware products.

Apple MacBook Air, Pro and iMac

Perhaps in what seems a very surprising move, Apple rescheduled its Q4 2016 earnings call from the initial date of October 27th to October 25th, citing a scheduling conflict as the reason behind it. Apparently, there has been talk of the company holding an event on October 27th where new MacBooks, including an all-new MacBook Pro, will be announced. The 2016 MacBook Pro is expected to come with a new design featuring a thinner and lighter body as well as a secondary OLED display that will take the place of the first row of keys on the keyboard.
