Some MacBook Pro shipping dates slip to June 6, hinting at a WWDC refresh
Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro sans Touch Bar’s delivery dates have lately been pushed back to June 6. This happened a few days after the keynote for the 2018 WWDC, which may be a sign that updated models are on the way.
The 15-inch and 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar versions are still coming in as little as one day, according to Mac Observer. If an update is announced at WWDC, those shipment timelines may match those of the base 13-inch model.
The base 13-inch model’s available supply appears to vary from shop to store, although stock appears to be low at a variety of Apple stores.
Recent MacBook news has been sparse and mostly focused on complaints about the butterfly keyboard due to two class-action lawsuits.
Nevertheless, a new 6-core i9 processor from Intel was unveiled, which may be utilized in a redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro.
We’ll probably have to wait a few more weeks to find out what Apple has in store for its MacBooks because there aren’t many details available on what to anticipate at WWDC this year.
Want to buy a new MacBook Pro? You shouldn’t go just yet.
Apple’s online shop has seen a delay in shipping schedules for the 15-inch model, fueling speculation that a refresh may take place on June 5 during WWDC.
It seems weird that delivery times for a product that has been on sale since October would suddenly increase. It’s improbable that Apple has seen an unforeseen increase in demand that it is unable to handle. Given this, there is probably another factor limiting supplies.
That could be connected to previous speculations that claim Apple will update the 12-inch MacBook and MacBook Pro at WWDC next week. Both are anticipated to get small internal updates, including the newest Kaby Lake CPUs from Intel.
As the 13-inch MacBook Pro is still widely accessible right now, Apple would probably upgrade to the bigger model first and the smaller one second. The business has already updated one model before the other, so this wouldn’t be the first time.
A quick check reveals that the shipping times for 15-inch MacBook Pros are comparable everywhere, including in the UK, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, and several other nations.
