2016 MacBook Pro Shipping Now

The MacBook Pro is shipping with some deliveries coming today to users who ordered on day one. Not all day one orders are shipping yet, but for many users the new MacBook Pro is with UPS and on the way.

Apple is starting to charge credit cards some of the other 2016 MacBook Pro orders, which is typically something that happens a few days before Apple ships them.

This is a good sign and we expect to see more users charged yet this week ahead of deliveries.

No Specific MacBook Pro Release Date

There is no specific 2016 MacBook Pro release date in stores, but you can go into the store this week to try out the new models in person and experience the Touch Bar in person.

Buy for a Smaller Design & Touch Bar

Buy for a Smaller Design & Touch Bar

One of the biggest reasons to wait for the 2016 MacBook Pro is the new design. The new MacBook Pro is thinner, lighter and smaller than the one it replaces. 

Apple shaves half a pound of each of the models, shrinks the overall; size by 20 to 23% and makes them thinner without cutting battery life, performance or the screen size. 

The new models include a Touch Bar above the display on the $1,799 and up models. This allows you to touch the small display to control applications and system functions. 

When you use Apple applications and soon other applications, the Touch Bar will change so you can use it to quickly acccess what you want. We know you can use it for Emoji, for app functions, for quick replies and much more. 

In addition to the Touch Bar, you also get a new Force Touch trackpad that is twice as big as the trackpad on the 2015 MacBook Pro.
