WWDC: Last Minute Rumors
Apple Store Offline: As usual, Apple has taken its online store offline in preparation for today’s keynote. The message is different: instead of “Be right back,” with an Apple logo, there’s a WWDC image titled “Developing News.” Underneath it reads: “We are updating the Apple Store. Please come back after the event and stream on apple.com or in the Apple TV app. Notably, this marks the first time since 2017, when Apple opened the Apple online store. at a WWDC keynote that year, the HomePod and iMac Pro were unveiled, but they didn’t ship until much later.
MacBook Air: Mark Gurman and Ming Chi Kuo’ agree that Apple plans to launch a redesigned MacBook Air at WWDC. However, it may not come in the variety of colors we expected. Gurman says rumors of a range of new colors are “probably exaggerated” and Kuo says the new laptop will come in “three standard colors (silver, space gray, gold), plus [probably] a new color.”
To add fuel to the rumor, a listing for a 14-inch MacBook Air with an M2 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage was discovered at B&H Photo. However, a tweet by Shawn C. Steiner, who identifies as a B&H Senior Manager of Web Creative Content, says B&H has previously made product listings that are “guess based on rumours” (more on that later), and that could be what’s going on here is and with the…
13-inch MacBook Pro: gurman says the schedule for the 13-inch MacBook Pro has been “thrown off” due to inventory shortages and is likely to launch sometime in the fall. 9to5Mac too discovered a listing at B&H Photo for a 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 processor, but again, this is probably B&H’s guess based on rumours.
Mac mini tower: Another B&H photo frame, this one for one Mac mini tower with 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of storage and an M1 Pro processor. A B&H representative says this listing was created as a guess for “the latest event” and was never removed from the site.
M2 Mac mini: Another “guess” list from B&H Photo that was never deleted, this one is one M2 Mac mini with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
Mac pro: Ian Zelbo, the artist responsible for Front Page Tech’s Apple concept artwork, thinks B&H also gave away the impending release of an Apple Silicon Mac Pro by labeling the current model as “Item Discontinued”. (However, we have not been able to confirm this. Everything models of Mac Pro which we can see there appearing as available for purchase, with expected delivery ranging from two to eight weeks.)
Zelbo also claims that Apple has set its Mac Pro intro video on YouTube to private, which could be a further indication of a new Mac Pro†
AR headset: While there was some hope that Apple would offer a preview of its upcoming AR headset, reports now say: he is unlikely to show up at the event.
