During an interview segment of “60 Minutes” on CBS with Bruce Sewell, Apple fans saw Jony Ive’s design studio for the first time. Vigilant fans have noticed a MacBook on the desk behind Bruce Sewell. Apparently, the company didn’t have the intention to reveal it.

Cult of Mac speculates that the MacBook seen at the background could be the new 15-inch MacBook Pro. They claim that the MacBook, displayed behind Bruce Sewell, has a larger display size than the 12-inch Macbook and thinner than the current 15-inch MacBook. It has a thinner bezel margin and had a Saturn Wallpaper which the company has been using for promotion.

However, the product was out of focus and it could just be the space grey model of the 12-inch MacBook Pro which is now in stores.

It is unlikely that Apple would leave the prototype of an upcoming product visible enough on the interview. The entire conference was filled with  current Apple products ranging from Mac Pro to AirPort Express. All these were seen at the background during the group interview of the  “60 Minutes.” Rumour mills are constantly producing speculations about the upcoming products of Apple as the company is mysterious about giving information on the exact launch date of the latest MacBooks.

Nevertheless, latest reports suggest that the 2016 MacBook will be released in the second half of 2016. Gospel Herald reports that Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference which is scheduled for June 2016 will witness the launch of all the upcoming products. Moreover, the earlier MacBook models are now sold at reduced prices.

Apple adopted the strategy of maintaining a time gap of a few months between the iPad Pro and the 15-inch MacBook Pro which was evident this year. So, the company would first release the 2016 MacBook Air and then the 2016 Apple MacBook pro, as reported by Christian Today.

Fans are expecting that the upcoming Apple products will have radical changes as far as the design is concerned. It is also widely anticipated that the 2016 MacBook will also have some major internal upgrades.
