Apple lovers can expect to see a refreshed line of the Macbook Pro in this year's 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
Apple's WWDC will take place June 10-13 in San Francisco.
According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chu Kuo, who has in the past accurately predicted Apple's product release dates, refreshed versions of the Macbook Pro notebook series will be unveiled at the conference.
Writing in his latest research note, Kuo claimed that the tech giant may use an Intel Haswell processor to power the Macbook. However, a MacBook Air with Retina Display is not expected.
The refreshed MacBook Pros still expect to come with an optical drive and not necessary pack a Retina Display. It was previously believed that Apple will ditch regular displays and replace all notebooks with the Retina Display, but that idea has now become obsolete.
The Intel Haswell processors are expected to replace the Ivy Bridge processors that are currently packed in MacBook Pro notebooks released in 2012.
Intel is expected to launch its latest processor on June 3, just a week before WWDC starts.
A late second quarter release is expected for both the refreshed MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.
A major design change is not expected in the new generation Macbook Pro, Air notebooks.
Tickets for the annual WWDC is selling out soon for Apple developers and engineers to see what's next in iOS and OS X, and learn to take apps to the next level with over 100 sessions, lambs and events.
