MacBook 2017 release date, news and rumors

Interestingly, the incorporation of the latest chipset in the new Surface Pro means that the 2-in-1 hybrid device is both faster at processing and more efficient at conserving energy as compared to the Surface Pro 4.

Said evidence comes in the form of regulatory approval spotted by the French web site Consomac. The 13-inch model will come with Kaby Lake Integrated GPU, while the 15-inch laptop will feature Radeon Pro GPU.

One curious observation: the tablet numbers are grouped in pairs. The first buyer bought it in anticipation of the new device, while the second customer wasn't as lucky, apparently thinking it was for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

The documents also highlight a new Apple Magic Keyboard, which has not been upgraded since 2015.

Rumours have also suggested a new line of Mac desktop computers and an update to the MacBook laptop could be discussed.

Apple will share more details about its imminent product launches on Monday, with the main WWDC 2017 keynote set to kick off at 10 AM PST.

According to a recent post published on AppleInsider, the MacBook maker will be making the Mid-2011 MacBook Air and Late-2011 MacBook Pro models obsolete in nearly all parts of the world, except California and Turkey. On the other hand, exactly 220 days will have passed if the Cupertino-based company launches new MacBook Pro models at the event.

We haven't really heard anything about the 12-inch MacBook but it is also rumored to be one of the laptops that Apple plans on refreshing. Apple's WWDC keynote takes place June 5 at 10 a.m. PT. The existing MacBook Pro models are powered by with Skylake processor. It will be sleek and thin, with a slimmer bezel, and also waterproof features, News 4C reports.

While this conference is mostly focused on new software, anything can happen and we might hear about a hardware announcement this time.

Sonny Dickson, who is known for sharing inside information in the tech world, recently shared on Twitter that the device will carry some form of Beats technology and is expected to run on variant iOS'.
