Apple is still not saying anything despite all the news and rumors surrounding the iPad Pro 2. Nevertheless, there's new talks now that the tech giant actually sent a survey asking for feedback on the first Pro.

According to MacRumors, Apple is most interested on reactions on the headphone jack, or the lack thereof. The article said that all this points to the seeming direction of the company to go wireless, with its iPhone 7 noticeably featuring no audio port.

The company is reportedly inquiring abou the battery life as well as other features of the MacBook Pro. One question goes like this, "How do you upload photos from a digital camera or phone to your MacBook Pro with Retina Display?"

News and rumors on the MacBook Pro 2 teased a USB-C port and just the headphone jack. There's no HDMI port nor SD card slot. That means, according to MacRumors, the second iteration of the laptop will still have an audio jack.

Tech Radar speculated that the price for the MacBook Pro will start at no less than around $600 for the 9.7-inch variant while the 12.9-inch model will be priced at around $800. The bigger laptop weighs around 713 grams and there are rumors about this MacBook Pro 2 being the slimmest and lightest laptop yet. Again, Apple is keeping its cards close to its chest on that one.

The news and rumors on the release date for the MacBook Pro 2 claimed that it will launch in October this year although it won't be commercially available up until the holidays.
