  • Apple Mac Book Pro 2017 Release Date & Specs Update

Apple is also working on a new version of the 12-inch MacBook with a faster Intel chip.

Apple will also announce their new iOS 11 and macOS Sierra 11 at their Worldwide Developer Conference next month. Apple and Intel declined to comment. But Macs are key to retaining the business of loyalists and the creative industries - the cornerstone of Apple's resurgence at the turn of the millennium under Steve Jobs.

A lot of that issue with the MacBook Pro 2016 had to do with timing. This move could help Apple offset new competition from its rival such as the Microsoft Corporation, as well as declining iPad sales. Some reports are claiming that Apple is planning to announce new MacBook models in this event.

But another rumor surfaced that the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and the 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 will be released this year which indicated that the latter is not a replacement of the former. Thus, the company is not getting solid reasons why they should continue with the Apple iPad Mini lineup.

While the 12-inch MacBook received several system upgrades a year ago, the 13-inch MacBook Air badly needs some attention as well. However, as reported by MacRumors, Apple is thinking on refreshing the Air model with an updated processor, which means that the MacBook Air could stick around for at least few years as a low-priced notebook choice.

Although none of the updates sound like especially major changes or renovations from the hardware perspective, it is still encouraging to see that Apple is finally taking some of the criticism of its latest MacBook Pro variants. The concept boasts a number of design tweaks, including better support for extensions in the Safari browser, improvements to Notes, Control Center, and much more.

A new story out of Asia seems to indicate the resized iPad Pro might really be in the cards for a June launch, as Apple is ramping up production. Apple started mass-producing the new tablet in March or April. While iOS now supports this capability in random places, making drag and drop available throughout the operating system would allow users to easily move content such as images, text, and files between applications and documents. Apple is expected to ship over four million units per month in June and July.
