Apple To Upgrade MacBook Pro To Kaby Lake CPU

The MacBook Pro 2016 model was unveiled in October last year, coming in three variants of two 13-inch models and one high-end 15-inch model - the company has similar plans this year, according to popular Apple analyst Ming-Ching Kuo.

The current top model of the new generation of MacBook Pros sits at 16 GB of RAM and Apple has not released nor announced a notebook with 32 GB of RAM. This seems unlikely with LPDDR4 already in production for mainstream systems, but it would further reduce the chances of Apple turning this into a net battery life win without substantial use of other power-conserving technology to make up the difference. What's more, Apple will also bestow its notebook lineup with Intel's Kaby Lake processors. Installing Intel's latest processor will definitely transform Apple's MacBook Pro into a powerhouse.

Apple Inc. the Cupertino tech giant is predicted to boom in with upgraded components in its new MacBook Pro.

Apple is eager for MacBook Pro users to squeeze the best possible battery life out of their machines, so it's understandable that the company was taken aback by Consumer Reports' original, and disappointing battery life results.

When Apple released its line of revamped MacBook Pros late past year, the response was surprisingly lukewarm. Apple recently introduced new MacBook Pro's with USB Type C, Intel's dated Sky Lake processors, and a touchbar instead of function keys. This new laptop is said to begin production in Q2 of 2017 and will likely go on sale soon after.

Apple is set to release a MacBook Pros with the new Kaby Lake chipset and a 15-inch MacBook Pro with 32GB of RAM.

Kuo believes that Apple will start production on a new 15-inch macOS laptop in Q4 2017.

It can be recalled that the MacBook Pro 2016 did not start well with the highly-regarded consumer product rating organization Consumer Reports.

Kuo states in his recent revelation that all now released Macbooks will get updates this year. The 13-inch MacBook Air was a solid entry-level machine that cost a thousand bucks, but is now too obsolete to recommend.
