Apple will reportedly refresh its entire MacBook lineup at WWDC

If you were one of the folks that shelled out $4,299 for the top-of-the-line model of Apple's MacBook Pro that was announced in October, you might not be pleased to hear that the company is already planning a refresh, according to a new report from Bloomberg. The new devices will use Intel's seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors, and if this is in line with rumors from earlier this year, they'll finally offer RAM configurations of greater than 16GB.

But that's not all; a refresh is also coming for the firm's 12-inch MacBook series of devices. This isn't nearly as surprising, however, since the Skylake options are now over a year old.

What is surprising is that Apple "has also considered" new models of its MacBook Air lineup. While the new devices are long overdue, many believed that the Air would eventually be phased out in favor of the 12-inch MacBook and the new, thinner MacBook Pro. With a 1440x900 display, it's the only current device from the company's product lineup that still doesn't offer Retina.

But according to the report, sales of Apple's entry-level laptop "remain surprisingly strong", for those that might be surprised that the least expensive device offered sells well.

Assuming that the report is accurate, these devices should arrive at the firm's Worldwide Developer Conference, which kicks off on June 5. If history is any indication, they'll be made available that day.
