Apple hasn’t officially announced a new 13.3-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display, but we’ve been expecting a refresh for several months now. A fresh report on Monday suggests that the company’s suppliers are already shipping the device, which has a smaller display than the current 15.4-inch model, as well as a refreshed iMac desktop computer, in mass quantities. According to DigiTimes, Apple will reportedly be ready to launch the new MacBook Pro in September or October in an effort to cater to both the tail-end of the back-to-school season and the beginning of the holidays.
Apple is expected to launch three new iMac SKUs with new displays and processors, although DigiTimes said the highest-end iMac has been delayed due to panel shortages. A specific launch date hasn’t been set for the hero iMac but shipments of the other two models increased in September, which suggests a launch may be imminent. Still, we’re not sure why Apple would refresh the lower end models without waiting for the most powerful device to be ready, so we could be waiting a bit longer until the kinks in the top-end iMac are worked out.
