Update: Pike’s Universum has done some more digging and discovered which processors Apple plans to use in its 12-inch MacBooks this year:
- Intel® Core™ m3-6Y30 Processor (4M Cache, up to 2.20 GHz)
- Intel® Core™ m5-6Y54 Processor (4M Cache, up to 2.70 GHz)
- Intel® Core™ m7-6Y75 Processor (4M Cache, up to 3.10 GHz)
Earlier this week Apple introduced a new 4-inch iPhone SE, a smaller iPad Pro, and all new Apple Watch bands at its ‘Let us loop you in’ March event. Just as we expected, news about any update in the MacBook line wasn’t announced. But thanks to a tipster, we’re now discovering references to an ‘early 2016’ 12-inch MacBook with Retina display, which is presumably a follow up to the first generation hardware released last April.
