Apple Reported to Release Updated Laptops at WWDC
Mark Gurman reporting for Bloomberg Technology:
"Apple is planning three new laptops, according to people familiar with the matter. The MacBook Pro will get a faster Kaby Lake processor from Intel Corp., said the people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal planning. Apple is also working on a new version of the 12-inch MacBook with a faster Intel chip. The company has also considered updating the aging 13-inch MacBook Air with a new processor as sales of the laptop, Apple’s cheapest, remain surprisingly strong, one of the people said."
I wouldn't be surprised if these updates were planned from the beginning. Their MacBook Pro lineup was clearly waining in the later part of last year. New Kaby Lake processors weren't yet available from Intel yet. And Mac users would have been understandably upset and assumed Apple was giving up on the Mac, if Apple had waited until this year's WWDC to announce updates.
