The MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to be introduced on June 13 at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference and fans and analysts are already making assumptions how the laptop will look like and what changes will “suffer”. In three weeks, our suspicions could come true, or we’ll have a big surprise.
According to rumors, the MacBook Pro 2016 will come with a 12-inc Retina display that will support 3 million pixels and will be thinner than any other Mac Retina display, as it will be only 0.5 mm thick. The display will have a larger aperture and more light will get through, and the LED backlighting will consume 30 percent less energy, which will help the battery last longer.
The keyboard will probably be revamped, as rumors say that Apple will use a Butterfly mechanism that will replace the old scissor design. This change will allow keys to have 17 percent larger surface area and they will be 40 percent thinner.
Most likely, the new USB-C will be added, as it’s being seen on most of the new devices. Apple has introduced it on the 12-inch MacBook 2016 powered by Intel’s Skylake processors, but a user has complained that he couldn’t make the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter to work properly with a Dell U2515H display, but he didn’t have any problem with the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2015 HDMI port.
The MacBook Pro 2016 will be thinner and lighter. If you recall the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro Retina 2013, Apple has reduced its thickness from 75-inch to 0.71-inch, resulting in a weight of 3.46 pounds from 3.57 pounds.
The processor will be faster with the sixth generation Install Skylake processors, which will improve the battery life. Apple will follow in the footsteps of HP, Dell and Microsoft, who already released Skylake-powered tablets, but the MacBook Pro 2016 will have an advantage: it will run on El Capitan and will have a longer battery life than the MacBook Air (9/12 hours, depending on the model). The Surface Pro 4 provides only nine hours of battery life.
