Will Apple Ever Release Its MacBook Pro 2016?

After some rumors suggested that Apple will discontinue the MacBook Air and the company's Worldwide Developers Council (WWDC) went by with hardly any statement on the highly anticipated MacBook Pro 2016, consumers are starting to get worried that the flagship laptop might never see the daylight.

Still, other reports suggest that the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016 will be released anytime soon this year. What is true and what is not? What do we know so far about the highly anticipated flagship laptop from Apple?

Since Apple is offering price markdowns on older MacBook laptops, it is likely that it intends to make way for the arrival of the new flagships later this year. According to Headlines & Global News, the MacBook Pro 2015 13-inch and 15-inch models are currently available for sale with great price markdowns, going to up to $400.

For instance, the 15-inch MacBook Pro is available for sale with a retail price of $2699. Included in the great price discounts are the iMac 4K and iMac 5K, with prices of $1299 and $1599 respectively.

As the world waits for the new MacBook Pro's arrival, latest reports suggest that the ultra-thin portable PC is likely to not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack anymore.   MacWorld UK explains that removing the headphone jack is part of a growing trend to get rid of the ability to plug in standard earphones from all Apple devices.

Among the device's other specs and features, the flagship MacBook Pro 2016 is likely to be equipped with great enhancements such as Touch ID, OLED function keys and USB-C port, according to Mobile & Apps. The ultra slim new flagship laptop will come out in two variants, a 13-inch and a 15-inch model.

Even if no official release date is in sight, tech experts estimate that the release of the new MacBook Pro is expected within this year's last quarter.
