Apple Looking to Update MacBook Models

It has been reported by Bloomberg, that Apple is about to release updated MacBook and MacBook Pro models. Apple could announce the refresh of its MacBooks at its WWDC keynote on 5th June.

The 12” MacBook with a retina display has not been updated in a year, but as the model is considered to work quite well, only a small specification upgrade is expected. A nice addition would be adding a second USB-C port, and changing the keyboard to the one used in the most recent MacBook Pro, it has been suggested.

As for the MacBook Pro with the new touch bar, although it is still quite new, Apple likes to update its computers regularly with better CPU options and more RAM and storage. In particular, the MacBook Pro missed the mark and shipped with Skylake CPUs, but now there is no reason not to update the laptops with the new CPUs.

Bloomberg is also saying that Apple is considering updating the MacBook Air. Based on Apple’s own press conference, the entry-level 13” MacBook Pro without a touch bar is the perfect MacBook Air replacement. It is about as heavy as the 13” MacBook Air, but more expensive.

At the next WWDC it is expected that there will be some news around iOS 11, tvOS 11, watchOS 4 and macOS 10.12.
