Rumor has 'most' Macs getting updates at WWDC

updated 01:14 pm EDT, Tue June 5, 2012

Event may also bring assortment of new accessories

Apple is planning to update "at least four out of their five" Mac lines at WWDC, according to sources for 9to5Mac. New systems should at least include two reconfigured 15-inch MacBook Pros, although what will happen with the 13- and 17-inch MacBook Pros is unknown. It's also believed that both the 11- and 13-inch MacBook Airs will be updated, as well as the iMac line. Less sure is what the fourth Mac to be updated will be, but it's speculated that it will be the Mac mini rather than the Mac Pro, since the Pro has been neglected for about two years.

At least some of the new systems are generally expected to have Retina displays. That might conflict, though, with a leak from earlier today suggesting that the 13-inch MacBook Pro will stick to the same resolution as it has traditionally used.

The sources also contend that Apple will introduce a host of new accessories and peripherals, though no specific products have been mentioned. These could range anywhere from cases and cables through to keyboards, mice, or AirPort routers.

    Doubt it.

    My prediction:
    MBP 15 will get Retina. WWDC is typically about software - retina is as much software as it is hardware.

    iMac, Mac Pro will get updated, but not at WWDC.

    Developer? What developer?

    Seems the WWDC has become the new MWSF. Instead of POing you that your new Mac you bought for Christmas was upgraded a week later, the WWDC is the new showcase for developing student sales.

    wrong again Arne

    but surely you are used to that by now.

    reliable sources are reporting that Apple will, in fact, unveil a new Mac Pro at WWDC next week.

    Sources have also been able to provide some part numbers and prices to prove this:




    The pricing is similar to current Mac Pro models.

    now why don't you go back to felching wrenchy.

    Just what the pros need!

    Reliable sources, rumors, speculation, etc...

    If the obscenely long update cycles and Apple's premium has not driven away the last of the sentimental professionals by now,

    Apple's own obscure attitude towards people making a living with their products will.

    Why are you so obsessive about the Mac Pro? Why are you always whining about the MacPro? Like the name said this product is intend to be made for professional worker which you are not. Go back at your Android tablet and other toys.
