Apple confirmed to launch trio of new MacBooks at October event?

A regulatory filing has apparently confirmed that Apple is preparing to launch a trio of new MacBooks at its October “Hello Again” event later this week.

The database entry was first spotted by French Mac blog Consomac (H/T 9to5Mac) and reveals a Russian-language registration for three new Apple “portable personal computer modules,” according to the translation.

The models in question are listed as A1706, A1707 and A1708, which chimes nicely with rumours that Apple is set to reveal three significantly ugpraded laptops running macOS Sierra later this week – a pair of new MacBook Pros and a refreshed 13-inch MacBook Air.

New features are said to include CPUs based on Intel’s Kaby Lake architecture, USB-C ports, Touch ID integration, and maybe even an OLED Touch Bar instead of physical keys at the top of the keyboard.

The trio will sit alongside the 12-inch MacBook in Apple’s laptop line-up, with the 11-inch MacBook Air looking likely to head to the digital bone orchard as a result.

Apple’s “Hello Again” event is set for Thursday October 27, with the action kicking off at 6pm BST (10am PST), so check back then for all the latest news and analysis.
