New MacBook And MacBook Pro Expected At WWDC, Updated MacBook Air A Possibility
Apple will showcase a new lineup of MacBooks next month. A report mentions that the tech giant will unveil a new MacBook and MacBook Pro at the Worldwide Developers Conference or WWDC which will be held from June 5 to 9 in San Jose, California.
Bloomberg reported that Apple is planning on introducing three new laptops during the annual conference for developers. Expected to be unveiled are new versions of the MacBook and MacBook Pro while an updated MacBook Air is supposedly also being considered.
The MacBook Pro 2017 will be powered by the latest Intel Kaby Lake processor. If this is true then previous rumors saying the next MacBook Pro will come with AMD's impressive new Ryzen processors will be flushed down the drain. Apple is pressured to come up with a better MacBook Pro after the one it released in November last year failed to take off. The new MacBook Pro will likely sport the same look including the slimmer design and even probably the Touch Bar. The main difference will be what's inside. The 2017 MacBook Pro would likely not have Apple's custom-designed ARM chip. The new chip that the tech giant is working on will allow the new flagship laptop to handle low power features. However, as noted by MacRumors, the chip may not be finished by the time June rolls out.
Apple is also supposedly working on a 12-inch MacBook which will also be powered by an Intel CPU. The third Apple laptop is rumored to be a new version of the MacBook Air which has been previously rumored to be on its deathbed. Sources say the Apple is thinking about a new 13-inch version of the MacBook Air with an updated chip as well.
The last MacBook Air update was back in 2015 and there were indications that the budget Apple laptop would be phased out. Apple may be rethinking any plans of killing the MacBook Air after it fared well in the market most likely due to its affordability. Apple fans and tech pundits need to wait a few more weeks before knowing what hardware Apple will unveil during the 2017 WWDC but for now, chances are high that a new MacBook and MacBook Pro will be in the offing.
