It will refresh its laptop lineup at WWDC 207 in June, according to Bloomberg. With a refresh on the horizon, the MacBook Pro will at the very least provide users with more bang for their buck.
Apple is set to release a new MacBook line-up with the new models set to be shown at their World-Wide Developers Conference, however questions have been raised as to how Apple plans to go about forcing consumers to upgrade. On the other hand, the price of the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, Radeon 460 graphics, 2.7GHz quad-core processor and 512GB of internal memory will be reduced to $2,799, 9to5Mac reported. The company has also considered updating the aging 13-inch MacBook Air with a new processor as sales of the laptop. Based on Apple's own press conference, the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro without a touch bar is the ideal MacBook Air replacement.
The MacBook Air was upstaged and neglected by last fall's new touch-enabled MacBook Pro, but Apple might not be ready to kill it just yet. The Macbook Pro is getting an improved Kaby Lake processor from Intel (INTC), the 12-inch MacBook will be updated with a faster Intel chip and the 13-inch MacBook Air may finally get an update that includes a new processor. Earlier this month, the software giant introduced its new Surface Laptop with a touchscreen to mostly favorably reviews. But while the company makes most of its money from the iPhone, Apple has also faced pressure to do more with its computer lineup. The stall in Mac updates has not been limited to laptops. This comes from Bloomberg, which says that the company could announce the new models at its WWDC Keynote event which is to be held on the 5th of June.
For the past few years, Apple's hasn't launched new hardware at its annual developer conference.
Apple last updated the 12-inch MacBook in the spring of 2016 with a rose gold color option, while the MacBook Air has not received a speed boost since 2015.
