Most Anticipated Device MacBook Pro 2016
After the launch of the flagship mobile devices, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the arrival of the MacBook Pro 2016 on the market is one of the most anticipated this year. BGR reports that the upcoming Apple flagship laptop will come with a lot of new features and improvements, such as the OLED function key panel that is expected to replace the FN keys commonly used in previous Apple laptop models. Apple will place the newly designed OLED function panel on the upper part of the keyboard in order to provide easy and quick access to the shortcut keys to some of the frequently used applications.
Major tech companies usually launch their devices in October, aiming to ensure good sales for the upcoming holiday season. Apple makes no exception and it’s highly anticipated MacBook Pro 2016 flagship laptop is set to launch at the event scheduled on October 27. As stated by MacWorld, Microsoft will also launch in October its latest Surface Pro 5, possible even before the Apple event.
MacBook Pro 2016’s Display
According to GameNGuide, there are many rumors and speculations about the specs and features of the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016.

MacBook Pro 2016’s Specs
Spec-wise, the MacBook Pro 2016 is expected to draw its processing power from the sixth generation of dual-core Intel Core M. Some tech analysts have even speculated that Apple may use seventh generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs in its upcoming flagship laptop. The device will come with support for USB-C and an extended battery life of about 10 hours, according to Gotta Be Mobile.
In terms of security, there are also rumors that MacBook Pro 2016’s security feature will be improved by Apple by implementing a new fingerprint login ability. Apple already uses this new security feature in its smartphones, so it makes sense that its latest laptops will adapt to this trend. The fingerprint sensor will be located under the MacBook Pro 2016’s power button.
