It may not be that much longer until Apple’s long awaited new MacBook Pro model hits the shelves.
After no mention of the Macs at all at Apple’s Spring event, updates on the new 13″ version may end up being announced at WWDC (The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference) on June 13th.
Although we may get some news on the 13″ model very soon, rumors floating around indicate that the 15in MacBook Pro won’t launch until later this year. Perhaps around the same time Apple launches the iPhone 7 in September.
According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, we should expect a redesign for the MacBook Pro that includes a thinner and lighter body, Touch ID, and an OLED display touch bar just above the keyboard. “While long overlooked, the MacBook line is the brightest spot for Apple’s 2016 rollouts,” Kuo said in a report sent out on May 23rd.
The last time the 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pro laptops got an update were March and May of 2015 respectively.
This could be a very long weekend for Apple enthusiasts as they wait for the WWDC to kick off on Monday. An even longer wait as Apple wont begin shipping them until August.
