Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off and the company may be getting ready to announce a handful of new notebook computers. Here are the details and updates of the MacBook.

Apple To Announce New MacBooks At WWDC 2017

Mac Rumors reported that Apple is planning to announce refreshes for its notebook lineup at its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference set to take place on June 5. Furthermore, the new versions of the MacBook and MacBook Pro are expected to be announced, and Apple is also considering updating the MacBook Air, its most affordable notebook.

Meanwhile, according to Redmond Pie, a new MacBook Pro will sport Intel's Kaby Lake processor, an upgrade over the current Skylake-based models. The MacBook will also get a faster CPU but doesn't specify what Intel part will be used.

It perhaps to the surprise of Mac users, Apple may introduce a 13-inch MacBook Air with a faster processor as the MacBook Air sales remain strong. These all also happened despite the fact that Apple killed the 11-inch MacBook Air last October.

MacBook Additional Update Details

Mac World reported that the new laptops won't have any design changes as the updates are speed bumps. However, the update is important to help reinforce the idea that Apple is committed to the Mac, even if Mac sales make up only 11 percent of the company's revenue.

In April, Apple met with select members of the media to discuss the company's Mac commitment and a revamp of the Mac Pro. WWDC also tends to focus on Apple's operating systems.

Fans can expect to see major updates to iOS and Mac OS during the WWDC keynote on June 5. There's also been speculation that Apple could release a Siri Speaker to compete with the Amazon Echo and the Google Home.
