Whenever a new iPhone is released, there are always rumours about what the next model will have in terms of hardware, along with its design as well, and this was the case in September, as people started talking about the iPhone 8. Now, we are doing the very same thing with the MacBook, as there is now rumours in regards to the MacBook Pro 2017 lineup.
9To5 Mac reports that KGI Securities might be a little presumptuous, but they have already started looking ahead to next year’s MacBook Pro models, and it’s suggested that its hardware could be getting another refresh, along with a price drop – although we are not too certain on the latter.
Having said that, we have a feeling that Apple will have a huge issue on its hands because of the price increase of its devices, even more so in the UK, and so will certainly take a hit on sales. We also feel that Apple missed a trick with not offering a Kaby Lake option, although they do say that there was just not enough time to make use of this processor, and so we hope to see it in the late-2017 MacBook Pro models.
Going back to that price for a moment, and there is some reason to believe that it is true upon further reflection. One reason is because when Apple releases a new generation of MacBook Pro the price is usually high, and then they usually start to lower that price.
Looking at the possible MacBook Pro 2017 specs, it could support up to 32GB of RAM, and might even skip Kaby Lake for Canonlake instead, which would offer between 15 to 25 percent less power consumption.
Like we said, this is based merely on speculation, and so have to take these rumours for what they are.
