New MacBook Pro and Air hardware spotted ahead of WWDC 2013

Over the past few months there have been increasing rumors suggesting that a new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air will be unveiled at WWDC 2013, but we started to doubt this following what Tim Cook had said several weeks ago. However, this would not be the first time Apple has sent us a curveball to keep us on our toes.

We say this because it had been assumed that one of the upgrades would be increased WiFi speeds, and there seems to be confirmation of this, as the new MacBook Pro and Air hardware has been spotted. The hardware in question is the 802.11AC Gigabit WiFi chip and is a very likely candidate for the 2013 MacBook refresh.

What makes this news all the more interesting is how there is a possibility that these new chips could be fitted to current MacBook Air and Pro models, which would give them the same WiFi speed boost as the rumored new models.

This is certain to be a popular MacBook upgrade, as people have faster networks, and their demand for this extra speed is needed far more now considering our reliance on a wired connection is far less than it has been over the years.

Speaking of those new models, we also expect some other upgrades, such as the new Intel Haswell processor and possibly a Retina display for the MacBook Air. Having said that, some Mac users have already said this is not as important to them, and would rather the performance upgrade, along with improved battery life.

What updates would you like to see in the new 2013 MacBook Air and Pro models?

Thanks to 9to5Mac.
