Apple fans are looking forward to the Oct. 27 event where the Cupertino company could release the Apple MacBook Pro 2016. It is one of the most highly-anticipated devices this year expected to boast some revolutionary specs and features. Apple is also expected to unveil a brand new MacBook Air 2016 along with other Macs kept under wraps.

Some are considering the MacBook Pro 2016 as the main highlight of the event. Any information about the device has been kept a secret. Hence, fans up till now have relied heavily on unconfirmed reports and rumours. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently revealed certain interesting features about the MacBook Pro 2016.

Some of the specs and features that every Apple fan wants to see in the device include Intel’s Skylake processor. The possibility of a Kaby Lake processor is almost nil as the latest highly-advanced processors are not expected to be ready before year-end.

A 2TB SSD storage capacity is very much expected along with an upgraded display panel. Panel resolution may remain the same but energy efficiency and better display quality is anticipated in the upcoming MacBook Pro 2016, writes The Bitbag.

An Apple Watch-like feature could be introduced for controlling the OLED touch bar. Since the Apple MacBook Pro has not received any major design update for a while, Apple fans expect the new MacBook Pro 2016 to be different and awesome design-wise. USB-C ports could also be incorporated.

There is a chance that Apple has improved on the battery capacity of the MacBook Pro 2016 that will result in 25 percent more battery efficiency.

A fully upgraded 13-inch MacBook Air 2016 may also be revealed during the Apple event. The Apple iMac 2016 is long due and fans believe the event will also unveil the new iMac with very powerful specs. The event will be live-streamed here.
