Apple fans are very anxious to see what next year will bring for their favourite MacBook – the 12-inch variant. Unfortunately for them, the Cupertino-based company didn’t make any announcement about the new device’s improvements.
However, recent leaks and rumours made their way through the community and help us find out more about Apples 12-inch MacBook. The mentioned MacBook was brought into discussion during an event organized by the developing company in New York on October 30th.
These are the speculations around the 12-inch MacBook
Some voices say that in 2019 we should expect to see updated versions of previous Apple devices (for example, MacBook Air, Mini Mac and iPad Pro). On the other hand, the company doesn’t mention anything about an update for the 12-inch MacBook.
Since the last upgrade for this piece of equipment was released a year ago, we can conclude that the next patch will arrive in the first part of 2019. February or March is considered to be the most suitable period.
The 12-inch MacBook will arrive with modern specs:
- It will have the 8th generation Kaby Lake chipsets which are famous for speeding up every task and enhancing the video streaming quality;
- In what graphics is concerned, the new MacBook might be released with Gen11 integrated graphics. This is Intel’s new creation, so it boosts to support 4K video streaming and content under 8K format;
- The MacBook will offer 16GB RAM. The storage capacity can be enlarged thanks to USB ports (in this case, we are talking about Type-C or Thunderbolt 3),
- Connectivity is super-fast – up to 40Gbps;
- MacBook will come with slimmer bezels and a larger display (possibly OLED for a higher accuracy of colours). This measure is suitable with an updated keyboard.
