Product listings suggest a 12-inch MacBook and new MacBook Pro coming for 2018.
New MacBooks are on the way and, if rumours are to be believed, it’s likely they could be with us very soon.
Details around what we can expect from these 2018 MacBooks are somewhat slim but, thanks to listings through the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) we know five new models are on the way. Spotted by French news site Consomac, the listings show that Apple is seeking approval to sell a 2018 model of MacBook in the Armenian, Belorussian, Kazakh, Kyrgyz and Russian markets.
Configuration numbers of A1931 and A1932 suggest an update to Apple’s 12in MacBook or a new MacBook Air. Models A1988, A1989 and A1990 likely to be MacBook Pro 2018 variants. Two models are thought to be 13in models, with another being the 15in variant.
Despite the listings suggesting these will be 2018 MacBook variants, TechRadar points out that they’re all listed as running macOS 10.13, not the currently-in-beta macOS 10.14. It’s not yet known when the next iteration of macOS will launch, but it’s likely to arrive alongside these new devices so, to have not listed these new MacBooks with up-to-date macOS raises a few questions.
It’s likely that the situation arose simply because the EEC wasn’t made aware of macOS 10.14’s existence when these original listings were filed. In reality, Apple can push an update to these markets at a later date. New iPads were also mentioned in the same listing and, just like the MacBooks, they too feature an older version of iOS than the currently-in-beta iOS 12.
