As consumers continue to wait for the official announcement from Apple about the release date of MacBook Pro 2016, the latest rumors have suggested that it might already be available soon.

Will it be happening weeks or just days from now?

Since the American tech giant is set to hold an event on Oct. 24, many have speculated that it could be the best venue to introduce the highly-anticipated MacBook Pro 2016.

According to Mac Rumors, Apple could be working double-time by now to meet the supposed target release date. 

Based on the information it has gathered, the tech manufacturer "is indeed moving rapidly toward a launch" of the new MacBook Pro 2016 models, and being quick could mean anytime soon.

While some have appeared to support this theory, MacWorld UK is still not convinced.

The tech site pointed out that since the rumored release date would happen in the evening, it is unlikely for Apple to opt for such schedule.

Another reason which made MacWorld UK doubtful of it is the fact that said MacBook Pro 2016 rumor only came from "anonymous emails as sources."

Whether the upgraded MacBook Pro model would arrive this month or not, are there reasons that every Apple fan can look forward to about its availability?

In a phone interview with Forbes, Rhoda Alexander, Director Tablet and Notebook PCs at IHS Markit Technology, shared that "given the timing of the start of production, inclusion of [Intel's] Kaby Lake chip appears unlikely." 

It is worth noting, though, that this is not a negative news completely since it was revealed that Kaby Lake actually has "better graphics chip performance" compared to the upcoming Intel processor.

The report dished in its newest MacBook Pro 2016 update that "Since Apple seems to emphasize graphics these days, that means the new MacBooks would be locked into the older Skylake design for months."
