When Apple holds its Worldwide Developers Conference next week, the event would coincide with the free delivery in the U.S. of the 15-inch MacBook Pro. The June 6-8 delivery dates are for customers who ordered the laptop on May 29. The MacBook Pro costs $2,399 and $2,799, but Apple has an offer of special financing of up to 18 months.
With the news about the sure delivery dates for the 15-inch MacBook Pro, MacRumors reports that Apple would likely announce two new MacBooks at the WWDC keynote on June 5. These are the new MacBook Pro and 12-inch MacBook which would likely receive only internal improvements and an upgrade to the Intel Kaby Lake processors, a faster chipset.
The tech website notes that the only remaining MacBook in Apple stock rooms are 13-inch MacBook Pro models. These would be delivered beginning May 30 in the U.S. and other countries. The implication of the situation is that only the 15-inch MacBook Pro will be refreshed by Apple next week. Or the Cupertino-based tech giant has a large inventory of 13-inch MacBooks.
Last week, several authorized resellers of Apple offered $200 discounts on MacBook Pro such as the 13-inch model in Space Gray color. Also discounted by $200 is the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Radeon 455 graphic, and Apple Watch Series 2 devices by $100, according to Apple Insider.
The tech website points out that reports of the delivery schedule for the 15-inch MacBook Pro are not a clear sign of a new MacBook with the Touch Bar revamp. But Apple is known for adjusting product availability just before the gadget is launched to clear up inventory and prepare for new hardware.
For Apple customers who specified in-store pickup for the 15-inch MacBook Pro, the upcoming laptop will be available beginning on June 8. The in-store schedule is not only for the U.S. but also for other major markets such as Australia, German, Italy, Spain, France, Hong Kong, Japan, and the UK.
