Apple to Unveil Entirely New Mac Lineup at WWDC

With just six days until Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the amount of rumors and speculation has ramped up significantly. The latest word from the rumor mill comes from Mark Gurman for 9to5Mac, who now claims that Apple will update virtually its entire Mac lineup at WWDC 2012.

According to sources, Apple is planning to update at least four out of their five Mac lines at the June 11 WWDC kickoff keynote. Apple’s current Mac lines are the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, Mac mini, and Mac Pro.

The report says that the thinner 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, USB 3.0, and faster Ivy Bridge processor will be unveiled at WWDC, while new 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Airs with Retina displays will also be detailed at the event. The iMac is also believed to be getting updated with a crystal clear Retina display and perhaps a brand new industrial redesign, but it is unclear if WWDC will be the venue in which Apple shows off the new iMacs.

The fourth Mac out of the five that will be getting updated is unknown, as it is a toss-up between the Mac Mini and Mac Pro. Gurman is leaning towards the Mac Mini, however, since the Mac Pro has been neglected for at least a few years now. Gurman also notes that, according to his sources, Apple will unveil a new lineup of various accessories and peripherals. This could be new keyboards, mice, AirPort, cables, or other accessories, but it is not yet known.

Apple is expected to unveil its new lineup of Macs at the opening WWDC keynote, which takes place on Monday, June 11th at 10:00 AM Pacific.
