Analysts are saying that MacBook Pro 2016 may likely be released in October and Apple has been paying a price as MacBook Pro sales have reportedly gone down following the delay.

Consumers and observers in the industry alike have both been in the dark as to the reasons for Apple's delay to release MacBook Pro 2016. Apple's competitors gain in the process since most have already shipped their latest products.

MacBook’s sale has gone done from 4.8 million in 2015 to 4.4 million this year. It adds that the US market also showed a slight decrease from 2 million last year to a recorded 1.9 of the same period this year, Parental Herald reported.

Other brands have been reported performing better than MacBook when looking at their sales this year. Bitbag shares that Dell, Asus, HP and Lenovo have bigger shares in sales and Apple has taken a spot at the lowest level of the totem pole among the top five brands.

What then cause the delay of the much-awaited MacBook Pro 2016?

Many say that it's the timeframe of the release. Rumors have it that Apple has set the release of the upcoming MacBook Pro at the fourth quarter of 2016, which could be either September or October.

iTech Post claimed that Apple may also want to clean-up stores and sell the older models before introducing MacBook Pro 2016 to the market.

The third rumor suggested that Apple is still undergoing some physical changes in the upcoming laptop, considering the removal of headphone jack port and replacing it with Lightning port.

Consumers have their eyes on MacBook Pro 2016 as it promises features to die for. Apple says it will have a slimmer body and weighs lighter than most, giving convenience as one carries it anywhere. MacBook Pro 2016 also features Thunderbolt 3 port, FaceTime HD camera, dual mics and stereo speakers. Apple is reportedly installing more creative apps including Pages, Numbers, iMovie and more.
