According to 9to5Mac, Apple is going to update “at least four” out of company’s five Mac lines at Worldwide Developer Conference on June 11. Apple’s current Mac families are MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro and Mac mini. The most likely candidate for an update is the MacBook Pro that has been reported by multiple sources to be adopting a slimmer form factor with the upgrade.
RBC’s analyst Amit Daryanani issued predictions that Apple would revamp its MacBook portables later this quarter and release a new iPhone in September or October, echoing expectations for Apple's near-term plans.
The iPhone is the company's "flagship product". 43 percent of Apple's revenue in fiscal 2011 came to iPhone. Apple's apparent two-year design cycle could cause "increased seasonality" as consumers catch on to it and hold off on purchases. That explains just 21 percent growth in iPhone shipments year over year in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to 91 percent growth in Q4 2010.
DigiTimes reports that demand for Apple's redesigned line of 2012 MacBooks is so strong that Apple’s component suppliers are facing a labor shortage as they racing to produce enough parts to supply the Mac maker's production lines.
"Component manufacturing plants in eastern China have been suffering from labor shortages for a long time, and although May and June are the IT industry's traditional slow season when shortage issues are usually not as significant, the strong orders from Apple's new MacBook are leaving many upstream makers unable to satisfy demand."
