June is just around the corner and Apple is making the last preparation for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference. The event will kick off on June 13 and fans are speculating that the company will unveil both the MacBook Pro 2016 and the MacBook Air 2016.
Australian Network news has come across interesting information on Economic Daily News, about Apple’s plans to release the MacBook Air in 2016 with a thinner and lighter 11-inch variant. According to reports, the battery life will be improved and the laptop will come with new cooling modules, a new chassis, USB Type-C port and most likely, it will be powered by an Intel Skylake processor, which means that it will have better graphics and will support more RAM. Also, there are rumors suggesting that Apple will use a Retina display with Force Touch and the device will include a Touch ID.

Alongside the MacBook Air 2016, Apple is expected to reveal the MacBook Pro 2016, which will be redesigned and will have a lighter and thinner body, as well. The OLED display will support a resolution of 2304×1440 pixels and according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, there will be a touch bar above the keyboard.
Apple could bring back the Butterfly key mechanism which will provide an easy-to-type-on key switch. Another rumor claims that instead of physical keys, the slate will feature a “Zero-Travel” force-sensitive keyboard. The Parent Herald explained that micro-perforations will guide fingers to the correct part of the device and the key layout will be lighted.
Under the hood, the laptop will hose the sixth generation Intel Skylake processor, which will make the new model a lot faster than the previous MacBook Pro. There are many competitors who moved to Skylake and users have noticed the big difference in terms of performance. The battery life will be also improved, which means that it will last longer than 10 hours, as the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro supports.
