If you had any doubts about Apple announcing refreshed version of the MacBook Pros at June 4th’s WWDC event, then put them away as recent delay in certain MacBook Pro’s shipping dates may have finally confirmed arrival of new models next month.
As reported by MacObserver the delivery dates for the 13-inch non-Touch Bar model of MacBook Pro have slipped to June 6th, which is two days after Apple’s keynote. This is unusual and suggests Apple is preparing to ship the upgraded models, especially since the devices are shipping days after their expected announcement.
Other models of MacBook Pro that includes the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and 15-inch models are still shipping in one day. However this could also change subject to availability of the units.
This year’s MacBook Pro upgrade is expected to be modest in terms of design changes. The notebooks are expected to bring up to date specifications with rumors about Apple releasing a new 6 core i9 chipset model for the 15-inch MacBook Pros. We also hope Apple addresses the ‘butterfly’ keyboard issue that is affecting many users.
We will know for sure if Apple is releasing new MacBook Pros or not when Apple takes the stage on June 4th at opening keynote for WWDC 2018. Along with new MacBooks Pros Apple is expected to announce iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12 and watchOS 5. Rumors also point at a new iPhone SE 2 among other things. We will be reporting all the news during and after the event so stay tuned and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter.
