Could a MacBook Pro refresh be coming at WWDC?

Apple’s MacBook Pro could be in line for an imminent refresh at next month’s WWDC expo.

While the showcase usually focuses on software, there have been a few indicators Apple hardware might have a greater presence at this year’s event.

The Mac Observer has spotted shipping estimates for the 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar have slipped until June 6. That’s just two days after the annual WWDC keynote on June 4.

That would hint a refresh is on the way. However, at present, the 13- and 15-inch models with the Touch Bar are still available for one-day shipping, which could throw a spanner in that particular rumour.

The slipping delivery dates for the 2.3 GHz 13-inch non-Touch Bar model could just as easily be a coincidence. However, if you’re eyeing up a new MacBook purchase you may want to wait until after the WWDC keynote before pulling the trigger.

Apple is sure to unveil macOS 10.14, the next version of the operating system for MacBooks and Mac desktops. WWDC will also see the launch of iOS 12, and potentially significant updates for tvOS and watchOS.

In terms of hardware, it’s possible we’ll see a variant of the recently-released HomePod speaker. The outside bet is the launch of an iPhone SE 2018.
