Apple Rumored to Refresh MacBook Lineup for WWDC 2013 Unveiling

MacBook Air

Apple has neglected to update its MacBook Air or MacBook Pro notebooks since its Worldwide Developers Conference last June, outside of a minor spec bump and price drop to the high-end MacBook Pro with Retina display, meaning that the lineup is long due for an overhaul.

That refresh could once again take place at WWDC, which should be scheduled for early June once again. The next-generation MacBook lineup is expected to utilize Intel’s yet-to-be-released Haswell processors, and the entire notebook family could gain Retina displays. 

Taiwanese blog DigiTimes, citing its usual upstream supply chain sources, briefly touches upon the upcoming refresh:

The orders may increase slightly after Apple releases its new MacBook products at the end of the second quarter.

After a number of years of tremendous growth, the pace of Mac sales is expected to slow down this year. If Apple can get its latest MacBooks to the market ahead of the holiday shopping season, however, perhaps alongside a new version of OS X, it should have little reason to be concerned.

Are you holding out for a new Mac?
