'Ultra-Thin' MacBook Pro 2016 Release on July? Details Here


Apple is planning to ship new ultra-thin 13-inch and 15-inch MacBooks in June, according to a Digitimes report.

The new MacBook will also feature the USB Type-C but will still likely put in more of the usual USB ports that they had in the past since the new USB Type-C isn't as common as the older versions yet.

So yes, there is a lot of rumors for this product, which is pretty long-awaited.

9to5mac points to the Skylake processor in Intel's CPU roadmap as being a prime candidate for the processor in Apple's new line of MacBooks. Well, based on Apple's previous and current releases, I'd bet that a 12-inch MacBook-inspired design is on the horizon for Cupertino's "pro" line of notebooks. The reports tell that the new flagship iPhone is a hybrid of 5s and 6s. iPhone SE has a design of its 4-inch counterpart, 5s and the under the hood, it resembles iPhone 6s.

Amid the unending MacBook Pro 2016 rumors, it can be recalled that the last time the device's 13-inch and 15-inch variants were updated was already nearly a year ago.

However, it is best for fans to take this one with a tiny pinch of salt just like what they did with the first March 21 unveiling date rumor for the MacBook Air 2016. That report said the notebooks would be ready by the third quarter, which corresponds to a July-September timeframe - possibly shortly after a WWDC announcement.
