The MacBook Pro 2016 remains as unconfirmed as it has ever been. However, new reports about Apple's plans reveal that the company might have been in development of new Macs all along. So even though the company is still mom about its new products, rumors about the MacBook Pro 2016 still get fueled.
MacBook Pro 2016 News
The latest news about Apple is that it might be in the process of buying Sonder, an e-ink keyboard firm. If so, it could mean that if the company is using Sonder's technology on the MacBook Pro 2016, then it could be one of the biggest changes Apple is giving to its laptops. There have already been hundreds of news that talk about MacBook Pro 2016's usage of an OLED bar to function as a Function bar.
If this remains true up to now, then the use of an e-ink keyboard is pretty much in line with Apple's alleged goal. It's worth mentioning that the e-ink keyboard allows the physical keys to change, Techno Buffalo reported. This means that it could actually change they keys' functions depending on the programs running.
MacBook Pro 2016 Release Date
Right now, the rumor mill says that the MacBook Pro 2016 will be revealed before October ends. Mac World even says that an October 27 rumor release has already been a discussion online. However, there really aren't a lot of solid clues that support this idea. Sure, Apple is not a total stranger when it comes to holding a hardware launch at this time of the year. But then, it's difficult to keep your hopes up for something that is barely mentioned by its manufacturer.
Of course, it's not entirely impossible for Apple to unveil the MacBook Pro before 2016 ends, besides, the company loves to target the holiday sales. But until Apple itself teases the product, fans need to hold back their excitement. One thing is quite certain, though, if the MacBook Pro 2016 doesn't materialize, Mac fans would start looking at other options this holiday season.
