Apple has limited the RAM by 16GB because of voltage issues which take a lot of battery on the new MacBook Pro 2016. It will eat up maximum juice from the battery. Apple says, “More than 16GB of RAM at this time would require a memory system that consumes much more power and wouldn’t be efficient enough for a notebook.”
According to 9to5Mac, Apple’s Senior Vice President of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller had this to say, “To put more than 16GB of fast RAM into a notebook design at this time would require a memory system that consumes much more power and wouldn’t be efficient enough for a notebook. I hope you check out this new generation MacBook Pro, it really is an incredible system.”
The new MacBook Pro 2016 is definitely slimmer than the previous generation MacBook Pros and it’s just 15.5mm thin. It significantly provides 10hr of battery life which is iconic battery efficiency from Apple for a long time. The new MacBook Pro will feature the Intel core i5 or i7 processor with the blazing fast 16GB DDR4 RAM, but some might have questioned that why there is no 32GB RAM inside the new MacBook Pros. The reason has already been spoken by Apple. Phil Schiller noted that the 13-inch MacBook Pro will come with a 8GB memory stick and the 15-inch will come out with the 16GB RAM Stick.
