Good news for Apple fans out there! Tim Cook-led Apple is all set to refresh its entire MacBook line of products at WWDC 2017, slated on June 5th. Apple will push performance upgrades over the three models of MacBooks, says a report from Bloomberg.
There are three variants of MacBooks – a MacBook Pro, 12-inch MacBook and the 13-inch MacBook Air. Based on the report, Apple will likely boost the performance for these machines rather than making any major design changes.
Both the 12-inch MacBook with the retina display and the 13-inch MacBook Air badly needs a update as t hey haven’t updated since 2016 and 2015, respectively. So, Apple will take the advantage of WWDC to update its MacBook lineup.
Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors will replace Skylake processors in the MacBook Pro as there have been enough criticism for not having the latest processors as it is the latest product form Apple. Mac users may get sigh a relief for addressing their concerns over the time. There are highly possibilities to get another USB-C in the some of the models where you need a dongle to charge and plus something onto your device.
The 12-inch MacBook will also get hardware bump for better performance along with increment of RAM and storage. The 13-inch MacBook Air, the expensive model yet, will get a faster processor as well. The 13-inch MacBook Pro without the touch bar would be the appropriate replacement for the Macbook Air.
But its’ quite disappointment to learn Apple will not update the displays of the MacBooks, which the consumers were expecting for a long time. There won’t be any changes in the design as well. We could also expect some hardware boost down the line.
Apple WWDC 2017 is scheduled for 5 days from June 5th to June 9th, 2017.
