New MacBooks expected to be revealed at Apple developers conference



We still do not know for certain when exactly the 10.5-inch iPad Pro will launch, so we just have to wait again as we did back in March when a possible April launch was discussed. What is more, it is expected to reach a level of 600,000 units in July, since the supply chain's shipments of components for the manufacturers have been increasing recently, the source says.

A 12.9-inch iPad Pro refresh is also in the cards for this year, although it's not clear when it'll hit production.

We previously heard that a new 10.5 inch iPad Pro would be launching at WWDC 2017 with the possibility of also a new 9.7 inch and 12.9 inch version of the tablet showing up at the event. It's rumoured that a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro (putting it between the 9.7 and 12.9-inch models) could be unveiled at the WWDC. Its form factor will be similar to the current 9.7-inch model despite featuring a bigger display, thanks to narrower bezels.

Earlier reports suggest Apple has been facing technological challenges implementing the fingerprint sensor below the front display. Take a look at the video and hit the link below for much more detail on these features and others. However, it will be interesting to see how users will hold it in hands.

However, John Gruber of Daring Fireball predicts that the 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 is unlikely to launch before the iPhone 8. Furthermore, the new versions of the MacBook and MacBook Pro are expected to be announced, and Apple is also considering updating the MacBook Air, its most affordable notebook. Off the box, the 12-inch MacBook now has a 1.1GHz m3 processor and a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core m5 processor variants while the 13-inch MacBook Air has a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5. Stable shipments will begin in the third quarter, added the publication. Among the changes to expect to include better management such as the low power mood of the Apple laptop.

Apple's goal with the iPad Pro seems to be to try to enrich its iPad product mix. It makes little sense for users to buy an iPad Mini.

The news of stopping the Apple iPad Mini lineup is in the air, but there is not official notification or confirmation yet.
