WWDC Update: Apple Will Announce Kaby Lake MacBook Upgrades At The Event
Apple is planning to announce an update to its laptop series at the annual conference for app developers in early June, the WWDC 2017. This move could help Apple offset new competition from its rival such as the Microsoft Corporation, as well as declining iPad sales. Aside from that, Apple is also announcing Kaby Lake MacBook upgrades at the event.
Apple will unveil three new laptops at WWDC, according to Bloomberg. The faster Kaby Lake processor from Intel will be obtained by the MacBook Pro. Aside from that, the tech giant is also working on a new variant of the 12-inch MacBook with a much faster Intel chip. The Cupertino-based company has also considered updating the 13-inch MacBook Air with a new processor.
Apple has not updated its very own MacBook Air since March of 2015. Because of that, it has been phasing out in favor of the newest MacBook and MacBook Pro, which are both thinner than the "Air" unit. However, as reported by MacRumors, Apple is thinking on refreshing the Air model with an updated processor, which means that the MacBook Air could stick around for at least few years as a low-cost notebook choice. As far as the records are the concern, sales of the MacBook Air "remain surprisingly strong" because of its affordability.
Although none of the updates sound like especially major changes or renovations from the hardware perspective, it is still encouraging to see that Apple is finally taking some of the criticism of its latest MacBook Pro variants. Updating the laptop list with Intel’s newest processors is such a big help for those Apple laptop users since it is really their demand ever since. Thanks to the latest Kaby Lake processor, MacBook Pros will perform faster and more impressive.
As of now, it is unclear whether other concerns such as RAM flexibility and uneven USB-C performance will be addressed in some models. One thing for sure is that the Apple MacBook, as well as MacBook Air, are due for an update soon. Take note that WWDC 2017 event is scheduled to take place starting on June 5th to June 9th.
