WWDC 2013: Thinner Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Air expected to be announced
With Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) ready to kick off next week, we're now getting some new information that Apple will announce new hardware at the show. That new hardware won't take the form of an iPhone or iPad, but rather new MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs.
When Tim Cook takes the stage at Apple's WWDC 2013 we know that he will show the world updated versions of Apple's desktop operating system, the Mac OS X, and mobile operating system, the iOS. We recently heard rumors that Apple would not be releasing any new iOS devices at the show, like the iPhone 5S, iPad 5 and iPad mini 2, but would be releasing updates to both the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebook lines.
The rumors indicated that the notebook refreshes would only see internal upgrades with no physical changes to the design of the laptops. The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are expected to receive upgrades to their processors with Intel's next-generation Haswell processors, which Intel will launch this week.
A new report by Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities claims that Intel's Haswell processor will be the star of the show when it comes to Apple's notebook line. The processors are expected to provide performance boosts while also dramatically increasing battery life. With the improved battery life, Apple has reportedly been able to make the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro with a slightly slimmer form factor to increase its portability. The new Retina MacBook Pro is also expected to receive an upgraded camera from HD to full HD to provide an even higher quality experience on the Retina display for Facetime and video conferencing.
Apple's MacBook Air will not only receive an upgrade to Intel's Haswell processor, but will also include dual built-in microphones and a new 1080p camera that will provide higher quality imaging and clear and crisp sounding voice when using Facetime and other video-conferencing applications.
We've only got a few more days to go before we get to see what Apple has in store for us at WWDC 2013. With the promise of Mac OS X 10.9, iOS 7, new MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs, we can look forward to some exciting new surprises from Apple.
