When is the new 12in MacBook coming out?

Apple launched the 2015 version of the 12in MacBook at a spring event that year, and the 2016 MacBook was quietly introduced in April 2016; but things are evidently different this year. It looks like June, and WWDC 2017, is the most likely launch date.

A report from Bloomberg claims that new Apple laptops in multiple lines will be unveiled at WWDC 2017. The site based its predictions on anonymous sources referred to only as “people familiar with the matter”, who said that the 12-inch MacBook, the MacBook Pro and even the long-neglected MacBook Air could see a refresh at June’s keynote event.

A new model of the 12-inch MacBook will be announced, equipped with faster Intel processors. The MacBook Pro is also expected to get a processor bump to the Kaby Lake chipset.

But the most surprising forecast concerns the MacBook Air, a line-up which most of us had assumed was dead and buried. “The company has also considered updating the aging 13-inch MacBook Air with a new processor as sales of the laptop, Apple’s cheapest, remain surprisingly strong,” writes Bloomberg.

This fits in with dependable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s earlier predictions (as reported by MacRumors in January 2017) that a new 12in MacBook was set to go into production in early Q2 2017 – April or thereabouts, which meant a June or July launch was feasible.
