Rumor: Apple will announce new MacBooks at WWDC

The latest rumors suggest that Apple will announce three new notebooks at this year's Apple WWDC conference. WWDC is an annual event that Apple uses to showcase its new technologies to software developers. Thousands of Apple developers, many who use MacBooks, come to WWDC, so it makes sense to announce new notebooks at the event. 

That being said, the last time Apple announced new hardware at WWDC was back in 2013. According to the reports, it is said that Apple will announce new MacBook Pro notebooks with Intel's latest Kaby Lake processors. There will also be new 12-inch MacBook with Kaby Lake processors.

And finally, Apple will be updating the MacBook Air, presumably also with Kaby Lake processors, as sales continue to remain "surprisingly strong".

These new updates will help Apple keep pace with its competitors in the notebook market.  Apart from new MacBooks, other rumors also say that Apple might announce a new iPad and a Siri Speaker that would rival Amazon's new Echo Show.
