Apple launched the iPhone SE, the RED iPhone 7s and 7s Plus, and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro this month. However, several consumers are still waiting for the company’s latest update to the Macbook Pro 2017. Apple, muting official information about the device, is one of the many reasons why speculation about the upcoming device is extensive.

Release date

In October 2016, the company launched the current lineup of Mac models. Normally, the Cupertino-based tech conglomerate does not update its Macs more than once a year. Most likely, the next update will take place in October this year.


There are several claims that the upcoming device will be released and powered by Intel’s next generation Kaby Lake processor. If the speculation about the processor is accurate, most likely, the upcoming device will have an improved battery life. The processor will also enable users to switch between applications faster and easier. Aside from this, the chips will enhance output to 12 percent and 19 percent web performance.

There is also a big chance that the company could shift from Intel to AMD. Archtosh cited the impressive feat the latest series of processors have been boasting in the market. The latest Zen architecture AMD is offering, according to speculation, works well with Apple’s latest vision.

Intel’s toughest competitor’s latest CPUs promise to minimize battery consumption as well.


KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently said that Macbook Pro 2017 would have an increased memory. He was quoted saying that from 8GB, it will be released with 16 GB of RAM.

Radeon Graphics

The 2016 model was crafted with dual graphics.

It has Intel HD graphics 530 and Radeon Pro 455. The forthcoming device is expected to be equipped with more impressive graphics. According to speculation, it is likely for the device to have Radeon RX 500. This is the latest product, which will be available this year.

Aside from anticipated improvements under the hood, the Macbook Pro 2017 reportedly will have a larger display. There were claims that it will have a 14-inch screen size that will replace the 13.3-inch variant.
