According to a new report by Taiwanese publication DigiTimes, Apple is now expected to refresh both its MacBook Pro and MacBook Air product lines during its Worldwide Developers Conference next year.
Citing Taiwanese supply chain sources as the origin of the information used in the report, the paper writes that the Californian company has reportedly already issued what it refers to as ‘Requests For Quotations’ (RFQs) for both its MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, with both refreshed products expected to hit shelves sometime in June 2013.
Exact changes of the refreshed models are scarce, however the report does note that Apple is not expected to change the physical design of either product, adding that it is more likely that these new models will arrive with bumped internals.
“The sources pointed out that the MacBook Air for 2013 will feature a new processor platform, but its industrial design will not see any major changes,” reads the report.
The report also cites that Apple “may reduce the prices for its existing MacBook Airs” shortly before the launch of these new refreshed models, which it notes, could – in turn – “take away demand for ultrabooks.”
