Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is less than a week away now, and Tim Cook has already promised a refocus of the conference back towards developer-centric announcements. No surprise there, but that doesn’t mean we’re not going to see any new hardware. Check out this screenshot sent to us by an Apple dealer that suggests a new Retina MacBook Pro with the Intel Haswell chip is coming.
The leak comes from an Apple sales communication shared on Facebook of all places, before being sent to us by a reader. Thanks, friend!
The sales memo teases the second-generation Retina MacBook Pro with a Haswell processor, before an immediate discontinuation of the non-Retina MacBook Pros.
Here’s what the memo says:
MacBook Pro with Retina Display
Available June 11th
The new MacBook Pro with retina display (2nd generation) features an ultra-thin design, stunning display, Intel’s 4th generation processors and Facetime HD camera.
The non-retina MacBook Pro’s and MacBook Pro with retina display 1st generation models will cease to be available.
Channel Asset Kits and Product Presentations will be posted to Apple Sales Web soon.
Intel is officially announcing its Haswell chips at Computex today, and the timing is right for a MacBook Pro refresh. Of course, it could just be another elaborate fake. The way the memo is formatted is pretty sketchy after all: Apple settle for nothing less than grammatical perfection in all communications. We’ll have to wait and see!
