Apple unveiled the much-anticipated iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at an event last week, however, nothing came out as far as the MacBook Pro 2016 is concerned.
In fact, it has been over a year since Apple updated the MacBook Pro lineup. Not just the MacBook Pro, but Apple has also slowed down when it comes to updating its entire Mac lineup, with the latest update coming to the iMac, almost a year ago. The concentration has been high on the iPhone as well as iPad, with the company trying so hard to convince many that the latest hybrid tablet can actually take the place of PCs.
Well, could this hard push for the adoption of iPads in place of PCs be the reason why Apple has slowed down with respect to updating the Mac? Well, according to Tim Cook, Apple CEO, it seems not. Apparently, the tech mogul has thrown a hint that suggests we could see a MacBook Pro 2016 launched soon, before the end of this year.
There have been rumors that Apple is working on unveiling a new MacBook Pro 2016 somewhere this fall. However, no date has been highlighted. Furthermore, Apple has also shown no sign of coming in with this device, but Cook’s words will comfort lovers of these laptops, who according to Mac Rumors, saw the last update more than 479 days ago.
Cook couldn’t hide his love for the Mac when asked whether the company was no longer going to refresh the lineup.
“I love the Mac and we [Apple] are very committed to it,” he said. In reference to whether there is a refresh coming soon, Cook urged the reader to “stay tuned.”
In addition to the MacBook Pro 2016, Apple is also expected to update the MacBook Air as well as bring in new iMacs. If the rumors remain right, the MacBook Pro 2016 will come in with the most impressive updates, including a complete redesign. Expect something thinner and lighter than any of its predecessors. There have also been talks of Apple including an OLED touch display right at the top of the keyboard.
But until then, you should take these reports with a grain of salt, because Cook only asked MacBook Pro 2016, MacBook Air 2016 and iMac fans to stay tuned. Nothing more! Still, we’ll follow up the matter and bring you the latest updates on the same.
