Apple has recently updated its online store to indicate that 15-inch MacBook Pro placed today is now estimated for free delivery. The delivery starts on June 6 and ends up to June 9 exclusive for the United States, coinciding with its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
As noted by Engadget, the delivery estimates lend credence to a report stating Apple plans to announce new MacBook Pro and 12-inch MacBook models at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) keynote this coming June 5, 2017. These speculated notebooks are expected to receive internal improvements only, which includes an upgrade to Intel's faster Kaby Lake processors.
Meanwhile, the 13-inch MacBook Pro models remain in stock for delivery as early as this week in the United States and several other countries. It's still unclear if that's because Apple plans to refresh only the 15-inch MacBook Pro next week, or it supplies of the 13-inch models are simply more plentiful ahead of Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Kaby Lake processors are appropriate for a 13-inch MacBook Pro to appear to be readily available, so a refresh shouldn't be ruled out anyway.
On the other hand, Apple has staggered the release of the MacBook Pro in the past. Last 2015, the company released a 13-inch model in March and a 15-inch model in May. In 2012, Apple revealed the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, while a 13-inch model didn't launch until October, in the same year.
According to Tech Radar, several reports shows that the 15-inch MacBook Pro delivery estimates are similarly as long in other countries such as the United Kingdom, Spain, Singapore, Netherlands, Italy, Hong Kong, France, Germany, Australia, and Canada. Consumers will still have a longer look for the MacBook Pro's 2015 15-inch model.
Apple last refreshed the MacBook Pro in October 2016, after the notebook went 527 days without being updated. This means that only 220 days will have passed if Apple launches new MacBook Pro models on June 5, below the average timeframe of 320 days between any two MacBook Pro generations.
