WWDC: Last minute rumors
The Apple Store is down: As usual, Apple has canceled its online store in preparation for today’s keynote. The news is different – instead of “Be back now” with the Apple logo, there is a picture of WWDC called “News Development”. It says, “We’re updating the Apple Store.” Come back after the event, stream to apple.com or the Apple TV app. Remarkably, this is the first time since 2017 that Apple has closed the Apple Online Store during a WWDC keynote. HomePod and iMac Pro were unveiled this year, but were not delivered until much later.
MacBook air: Mark Gurman a Ming-Chi Kuo agrees that Apple plans to launch a redesigned MacBook Air at WWDC. However, it may not be in the different colors we expected. Gurman says rumors of a number of new colors are “probably exaggerated” and Kuo says the new notebook will come in “three standard color variants (silver, space gray, gold) and more [probably] one new color. “
Even more fuel added to the fire when B&H Photo discovered a 14-inch MacBook Air with an M2 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. However, a tweet by Shawn C. Steiner, who identifies himself as B&H Senior Manager for Web Creative Content, says B&H has previously created product listings that are “rumors based on rumors” (more on that in a moment), and that could be what’s going on here and there…
13-inch MacBook Pro: Gurman says the plan for the 13-inch MacBook Pro has been “dropped” due to lack of supply and is likely to be launched sometime in the fall. The 9to5Mac also unveiled a B&H Photo offering for a 13-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 processor, but again, it’s probably a rumor-based B&H estimate.
Mac mini tower: Another list B&H Photo, this one for Mac mini tower with 8GB RAM, 256GB storage and M1 Pro processor. A B&H representative says the record was created as an estimate for the “last event” and was never removed from the site.
M2 Mac mini: Another B&H Photo “guess” that has never been downloaded is the M2 Mac mini with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
Mac Pro: Ian Zelbo, the artist responsible for illustrating the Apple Front Page Tech concept, believes B&H has also revealed the upcoming release of the Apple Silicon Mac Pro by labeling the current model as “Item Discontinued.” (However, we were unable to confirm this. All Mac Pro models we see there appear to be available for purchase, with an expected delivery time of two to eight weeks.)
Zelbo also claims that Apple has made its introductory Mac Pro video on YouTube private, which could be another clue to the new Mac Pro.
AR headset: Although there was some hope that Apple would offer a preview of its upcoming AR headset, reports now say it is unlikely to appear at the event.
watchOS 9: MyHealthyApple recorded an FDA 501 (K) record that points to new Apple Watch features that allow users to view a history of their atrial fibrillation readings.
