We expect to see a lot of interesting new products from Apple this fall, primarily new iPhones and iPads. There’s been chatter about new Macs as well and a report published today claims that this October the company is going to release a 12-inch MacBook as well as a 4K desktop. Both products will apparently used as selling points for OS X Yosemite which is reportedly going to be released for the public in October as well.
This isn’t the first we have heard about the 12-inch MacBook. Today’s report claims that it will have a Retina display measuring 12-inches diagonally and that it will have a much thinner and lighter aluminum body than all existing Mac notebooks. It is not known as yet if the company will brand it as a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro, or if it will come up with a completely new brand name.
The report doesn’t include any concrete details about the 4K desktop, speculating that it may either be an iMac or a standalone monitor. Both products are due for an update though, the iMac and Apple’s standalone Cinema Display.
These refreshed models with high quality displays will tie in nicely with all of the user interface enhancements that Apple has made in OS X Yosemite. Apple may have a strong Mac lineup as it enters into the holiday quarter if this report is accurate.
