Apple to Start Production of Updated MacBook Models in Q1 or Q2 2016
According to the latest report from reliable reporters, Apple will start the production of updated 12-inch and 13.3-inch MacBook models either at the end of the first, or in the second calendar quarter of 2016. As to the 15-inch MacBook lineup, it will go into production in the third quarter of this year, sources claim. Unfortunately, the tech specs of the upcoming laptops remain unknown. All we know is that the devices should be equipped with new Skylake processors and possibly Thunderbolt 3 with USB-C.
Reliable sources believe Apple will ship about 20 million Mac (including MacBook, iMac etc.) units in 2016. That’s about the same as in 2015.
Apple's Mac-series product shipments are expected to remain at a level similar to that of 2015 at around 20 million units in 2016, but despite flat shipment performance, new MacBook and iMac products for 2016 are expected to boost the company's overall product ASPs, according to sources from the supply chain.
The release of the updated 12-inch and 13-inch MacBooks may take place in March alongside the release of the 4-inch iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3 and the updated Apple Watch. Stay tuned for more rumors.
