While most of the world rides on the recent iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus release, there are still those that are patiently waiting for the MacBook Pro 2016, which should give the Apple product the overhaul that has been long overdue. Likewise, the iPad Pro 2 is expected to arrive with plenty of improvements from the original product.

The MacBook Pro 2016: Apple Is Listening

According to MacRumors, Apple has been releasing a survey to current MacBook users, which focus on what features are constantly used and what improvements they would like to see. In particular, one question shared by one of the respondents was, "Do you ever use the headphone port on your MacBook Pro with Retina display?" While this specific question made it clear that Apple is wondering whether or not to remove the 3.5mm audio jack in the notebook as well, there were other questions asked as well.

For example, Apple asked about the MacBook Pro's other ports, like the SD card slot, and the battery life as well.

Reportedly, the MacBook 2016 will include as many as four USB Type C ports and will do away with all others - that means the loss of the SD Card slot, the HDMI port, the USB Type A port and the MagSafe connection.

The iPad Pro 2: Seeing Threes

According to MNR Daily, the iPad Pro 2, which is expected to come next year, will come in three variants. These options will differ in sizes and power, in order to cater to the different needs of consumers.

In addition, the iPad Pro 2 is expected to come with improvement on the screen of the gadget. It is likely that screen zooming, scrolling and panning will be much quicker this time around. Furthermore, it is expected that the iPad Pro 2 will be compatible with Apple's own stylus pen, the Apple Pencil.
