Today was Apple’s big September 7 unveiling event. A new iPhone 7 was announced, but Apple fans are unhappy that a Macbook Pro wasn’t part of the lineup. When is a new Macbook Pro on its way?
Here’s what you need to know.
Despite hopes that Apple would announce a new Macbook Pro or Macbook Air, new models were not announced during the September 7 keynote event today. A new iPhone 7 is coming, but we won’t be seeing a new Macbook Pro in this product cycle.
Many people were holding out on buying a new laptop because they were hoping Apple would announce a new Macbook Pro today. Since that didn’t happen, when can we expect a new Macbook Pro to be released? Current speculation is that the newest Apple laptop could be announced as early as next month, but Apple hasn’t made any announcements about this. It appears that Apple didn’t want to share the iPhone 7’s spotlight with a new Macbook Pro today.
There are a lot of rumors about what we can expect with the Macbook Pro. According to Ars Technica, we may see an OLED touchscreen bar instead of function keys, new processors, a touch ID, and a thinner model. But unfortunately, we won’t be seeing that until sometime next month at the earliest.
