In addition to its desktop Macs, Apple’s MacBook lineup is in need of a refresh. Past rumors indicate that a new MacBook Pro with a 16.5-inch display is on the table for 2019 — and WWDC is about as good of a place as any to debut it. Last year, Apple released the 2018 MacBook Pro via press release. But a WWDC announcement would still line up with that summer release timeline.
The MacBook Pro isn’t the only Apple notebook in need of an update. Apple’s 12-inch MacBook has largely been overshadowed by its larger, cheaper and more powerful MacBook Air counterpart. Apple needs to make the 12-inch notebook a lot more powerful or cheaper for the lineup to even make sense going forward.
