Tomorrow is the start of Apples worldwide developer conference. Traditionally the event starts with a keynote speech full of announcements.
Here is my Wishlist!
New MacBook Pros.
First and foremost, the time is ripe for new MacBook Pros. They have been rumoured for a while. At a minimum I’d be looking for updated internals (skylake, thunderbolt 3) but really a hardware design refresh is also due.
The rumoured designs with the OLED touchscreen above the keyboard sounds great to me.
USB-C only would be a bug bare, but if there are 4 of them as rumoured that won’t be too much of an issue.
Retina Thunderbolt Display.
I’m going to be sticking with my iMac for now, but I would love to see a 4K or 5k external display from Apple. This would mean that in 12-18 months when I might be looking for one I can get a bargain in the refurb store.
I don’t think we will see the return of the quad core Mac mini. So please could we have something innovative on size. Perhaps a core m powered Mac Stick or even something Apple TV sized.
I’d even be curious for an ARM Mac Mini for use as a home server. Perhaps running a variety of iOS.
New software is cool and renaming Mac OS X to macOS would be neat but I care far more about hardware. Almost the entire Mac range is looking dated so it’s time for a refresh. Here’s hoping.
By this time tomorrow we should know what Apple has planned.
