Looks like apple might just skip skylake (hopefully since it's already so late) if they don't then this thread will have a very long wait! http://www.macrumors.com/2016/07/21/intel-begins-shipping-kaby-lake-processors/ Since Kaby Lake is now shipping maybe this is what apple was waiting for which could explain the delay. I hope this is true and they arn't going to disappoint us with skylake and actually deliver us the most up to date this year the macbook pro lineup really needs this. Edit: 10/28/2016 Well i was hoping that kaby lake would have been released this year but apple decided that its best to sell us old skylake processors and up the price by a huge margin. I'm officially no longer waiting for any new mac book pros. Apple is no longer the company i want to do business with. The company that was created by Steve Jobs seems seems to no longer exist. They do not care about the customers, they only care about how much profit they can take in from the millions of loyal fans they have acquired over the last 2-3 decades.
