Apple MacBook Pro to be updated with new Intel Kaby Lake processors and more RAM this year

If you were one of the few who didn’t appreciate the performance capabilities of the recently announced MacBooks, then hold on. According to popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo at KGI Securities in Taiwan, Apple will be bringing new upgrades to the MacBook lineup this year.

Since the new Intel Kaby Lake processors are official, this year could see Apple updating the MacBooks with the new chipset along with an option for 32GB of RAM on the 15-inch model.

A new 12-inch MacBook is expected to enter production in Q2 of 2017 while the new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros will begin production Q3 of 2017. There is also the mention of a new 15-inch MacBook with 32GB of RAM which will enter production in Q4. This model will most likely be aimed at high-end users

Apple announced a refreshed line of the MacBook a couple of months back with Intel’s Skylake processor, so chances of an upgrade to the new processors is quite obvious. While there is limited detail, it is safe to assume that Apple will retain the design and most of the other features.

The new MacBooks have been criticised for having poor battery life which should probably by addressed in the new upgrades.
