Macbook Pro 2016 release date, specs news update: Slated for release in October

Apple enthusiasts may be getting the MacBook Pro 2016 a bit earlier than they initially expected.

According to Vine Report, word has been spreading that the highly anticipated flagship laptop for Apple may be making its way to shelves next month. While a few other reports have already narrowed down the MacBook Pro 2016 release date to Oct. 26, many others believe that the Cupertino, California-based tech mogul will be revealing the laptop around the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2016.

(Apple Official Website)This year's MacBook Pro is expected to come with Apple's proprietary chipset.

Earlier rumors had indicated that the laptop would see a delay due to Apple's plans to make use of the incoming seventh generation processing chip, Intel's Kaby Lake.

However, a new report stipulates that Apple has decided to use the chipset that they own instead of waiting on the Kaby Lake processing chip. Rumors of foregoing the use of Kaby Lake had sprouted after Apple revealed that it was using its own chip, the A10 Fusion, on its latest iPhone installments, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

Many believe that Apple is preparing its very own chip for the MacBoook Pro 2016 and The Verge writes that rumors have been spreading that the A10 Fusion chip of the iPhone 7 has begun to worry the bigwigs at Intel.

While Intel has always been the main go-to when it came to processors for desktop computers and laptops, the market for mobiles has increased five times more than the market for PCs. With Apple creating its own chips for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (and great performing chips to boot), Intel may actually have stiff competition with the Cupertino tech giant.

Meanwhile, in other MacBook Pro 2016 news, the laptop has also been rumored to bring in a few major improvements to the whole MacBook Pro line with a C-Type USB port and a biometric touch ID feature.
