What To Expect From Apple's Big MacBook Event

Apple is having a press event on Thursday October 27 and you know what that means: New MacBooks! Finally. We’ve been waiting for this MacBook Pro overhaul for years.

After Five Years, Will Apple Finally Properly Update The MacBook Pro?

The last major update to the MacBook Pro was in 2012. Sure, it’s had incremental upgrades like a higher-res Retina display and the Force Touch haptic trackpad since then, but we’ve been waiting a long time for something new. (We’ve been waiting even longer for a new MacBook Air.) It seems all but certain, though, that Apple will hold an event on October 28th Australian time to introduce the world to a new, high-tech MacBook Pro — possibly with a set of function keys that are also full-colour touchscreens.

Where Are The New MacBooks?

Apple has been moving out of the computer business for a while. Where once the WWDC keynote would have revolved around OS X (just renamed macOS), now the event is the iOS show.

What To Expect From Apple WWDC 2016

Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC, is nearly upon us. The event runs from June 13-17 and traditionally serves as the launching point for major updates to iOS, OS X and the company’s other platforms. In the last few years, the updates to Apple’s two major OSes has been relatively small and boring for anyone who doesn’t have Xcode developer tools installed on their computer.

But this year, Apple is expected to make some big announcements that non-developers can get excited about — namely major updates to its two most popular laptop lines: The Macbook Air and Macbook Pro. So what else might be revealed? Here’s what you can expect from Apple WWDC 2016.

The New MacBook Isn't What You Think

Apple’s new MacBook is slick and svelte. It only weighs two pounds! But before you get too excited about how well this tiny (gold) laptop might fit into your life, you should know a little bit about its brains. This is not a retina MacBook Air.

Apple Messed Up On The MacBook Air Again

For years Apple’s MacBook Air has languished in partial obsolescence — a great laptop with fantastic battery life and a quizzically outdated screen. 1440 x 900 is a pitifully small resolution for modern times. Sadly, the company hasn’t learnt its lesson: the 2015 MacBook Air refresh has the same, outdated display as it has for years. What a disappointment.

The New Ultra Skinny MacBook: Here's Your Next (Gold!) Apple Laptop

It’s about damn time Apple reinvented the MacBook. More than the refreshed MacBook Air we’ve been hearing rumours about since last year, this new laptop is called simply MacBook. It’s so little and tiny that we’re practically breathless.

That Rumoured 12-Inch MacBook Air Could Be A Stunner

Ah, the wonders of photorealistic 3D modelling software. Although it’s only been two days since 9to5Mac leaked that Apple is planning the biggest overhaul to its laptops in years — in the form of a new 12-inch MacBook Air — we’ve already got gauzy, hyper-real renderings of this sucker. If this is what Apple is planning, count us in.

Why Apple Could Leave Ports Behind

While rumours of a 12-inch MacBook Air have been merrily percolating these last few months, the most interesting aspect of Apple’s upcoming redesign turns out not to be the size after all. It’s the apparent abandonment of ports.

Report: Apple Radically Redesigning The MacBook Air

Everyone’s been waiting years and years for a meaningful update to the MacBook line. According to a report from 9to5 Mac, this will be the year that a new design will arrive. The blog just published a few renderings based on details from unnamed Apple employees. And if they’re correct, this new MacBook looks awesome.
