Apple to unveil refreshed MacBooks at WWDC

If you're looking to buy a laptop, be patient and wait until after WWDC – new MacBooks are coming

The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference is looming – and, as usual, speculation is rife that Apple is set to launch a smorgasbord of shiny aluminium-wrapped tech.

This year, it looks like Monday 10th June will see Apple launching updated versions of its MacBook Air and/or MacBook Pro laptops. That's according to 9to5Mac, which has dug up model numbers suggesting that Apple's MacBook lines are due for a refresh.

The four SKUs show two different configurations of an Apple laptop in two different screen sizes – suggesting that either the MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro with Retina display is due for a refresh. According to 9to5Mac's sources, Apple's restricting inventory levels of both the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro with Retina display – so both laptops could be due for an overhaul.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, Apple's expected to update its MacBooks to Intel's Haswell processor. Kuo also claims that the MacBook Pro with Retina display will lose a few millimetres off its thickness, while its Facetime camera will be upgraded to a 1080p model.

We'll be bringing you all the latest news from WWDC on Monday 10th June – so stay tuned.
