Apple MacBook Pro, MacBook Air to get new ‘Haswell’ processors in June 2013, go all-Retina?

DigiTimes reports that Apple has signaled Taiwan-based suppliers that both the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air series will see revisions in June 2013. As noted by our buyers guide, this would put the updates in line within the expected timeframes,” Arnold Kim reports for MacRumors. “DigiTimes‘ sources also reveal that the new MacBook Airs won’t have any major external design changes, but will feature a ‘new processor platform.'”

“Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects that the MacBook Pro will consolidate back into a single hardware line next year. The new MacBook line will also use Intel’s new Haswell chips which are expected between March and June 2013,” Kim reports. “[Haswell’s] added GPU performance would be helpful if Apple does standardize on Retina Displays across the entire MacBook line in 2013.”

MacDailyNews Take: Did someone say 11-inch MacBook Air with Retina display? We’ll be the first to order!


  1. I think june is too early, given that Haswell has a june release date. Maybe new Macs a couple of months latter.

    And for me the most important feature of Haswell is NOT the GPU but the energy efficiency that will make a Mac portable have a battery life of 10 to 12 hours, so I no longer have to carry during the day a battery charger. This would be a great new paradigm.
