Will New 2016 Versions Of Apple MacBook Air And MacBook Pro Join iPhone 6s Release In Fall?

In addition to the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, it looks like Apple may be releasing updated 2016 versions of the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Venture Capital Post suggests a possible October release for the new MacBook Air and has some other details.

“The upcoming Macbook Air 2016 has been speculated by previous reports for having different variants. The base model is expected to offer 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD, while a step-up model with a 256GB SSD and a top-tier model with a Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD may be available.”

Other sources believe that Apple will finally upgrade the MacBook Air with a Quad HD Retina screen. The 2016 MacBook Air will also allegedly be thinner (if that’s even possible). It’s possible that if Apple may wait until Christmas season, when the Intel Core M-based Skylake processors are available in large quantities.

Besides the release of the 2016 MacBook Air, the 2016 MacBook Pro could also see a fall release. Gotta Be Mobile believes that one should definitely hold off until the 2016 version comes out.

“The 2016 MacBook Pro will no doubt include yet another performance boost over the 2015 model, but that’s not the main reason as to why you should wait for the next refresh. The real reason is because of the new 12-inch MacBook that was released earlier this year.”

Gotta Be Mobile believes that the new MacBook Pro will take on some of the incredible design aspects of the new MacBook, including the thinner design and all-in-one USB-C port, which many believe represents the future of computing. They also believe the new MacBook Pro may have a Thunderbolt port as well.

If Apple decides to release both the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro later this year, they may want to hire more people for marketing and production since the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be released in September. All of this could also be overwhelming for Apple addicts, who have to buy everything Apple puts out.

GSM Arena says the iPhone 6s (and iPhone 6s Plus) could arrive in stores on September 18. However, they don’t believe that the device will be announced on September 11, which is what other sources are confirming. It’s highly doubtful that Tim Cook will use the anniversary of the biggest terrorist attacks in American history to announce a new iPhone.
