Apple could be on the verge of releasing some new Macbook and Macbook Pro models. This comes from Bloomberg, which says that the company could announce the new models at its WWDC Keynote event which is to be held on the 5th of June.
While there aren’t much details on what to expect, the company could come out with specification upgrades. I mean the touch bar was brought in fairly recently, so unless Apple has some other cool additions brewing, ram upgrades, better displays, and the like are what we can look forward to.
Apple could also bring in the new Kaby Lake processors from Intel. The Macbook Pro shipped with the older Skylake, despite the Kaby already having been out for months. A USB-C port would also make a lot of sense so lets keep an eye out for that as well.
Interestingly, Bloomberg stipulates that Apple could be on the verge of launching a new Macbook Air as well. This goes against Apple’s own declaration that said that the company had planned the 13-inch Macbook Pro as a replacement for the Air. Indeed, we were expecting that the company was planning to kill the Air lineup following that launch.
However, the Pro is pro and that means a significantly heavier price tag. So who knows, the Cupertino giant may have it in its mind to cater to the more frugal of its customers after all with a cheaper offering.
Meanwhile, these are all rumors. If you really want to look forward to something, we suggest stuff like iOS 11, tvOS 11, watchOS 4 and macOS 10.12. WWDC being a developer conference, Apple is much more likely to focus on the software portion of its offerings. With that said however, it wouldn’t be a bolt from blue if the company does decide to come out with some new hardware as well.
