Apple MacBook Air and Pro to get revisions in June 2013

New Delhi: It's not even been five months since it launched the 13-inch MacBook Pro, and it seems Apple is already working on another MacBook. According to DigiTimes, the Cupertino-based company has notified Taiwan-based suppliers that the MacBook Pro and Air series will be seeing revisions in June 2013.
DigiTime's sources have said that the next MacBook Air will feature a new processor platform, but the design will not see major changes. This may lead to Ultrabook vendors growing concerned, as thanks to the revision, Apple will likely reduce the price of the MacBook Air before the launch of the next model, which could take away demand for Ultrabooks.
The revisions for the MacBook Air and Pro may indicate that Apple could move to Intel's upcoming Haswell processors. An earlier report revealed that Haswell has been delayed till June 2013, which also puts it in the same time frame as the expected MacBook revisions.
Back in October 2012, Apple introduced the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which featured a Retina display and all-flash storage in a new design. Measuring 0.75 inches and weighing 1.6 Kg, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is 20 percent thinner, and almost 500 gm lighter than the earlier MacBook Pro.
