WWDC: Apple’s Kaby Lake MacBook upgrades coming soon

Apple plans to announce upgraded Mac notebooks with Kaby Lake processors at WWDC 2017, a report claims. Regular readers will know we’ve been expecting Apple to migrate to the new chip, but Intel has only just begun shipping suitable processors, hence the delay.

What is Kaby Lake?

Kaby Lake is the seventh generation of the Core series chips. It’s a 14-nanometer processor which has been designed to deliver high quality graphics without a GPU. The smaller processor die and GPU advantages should make for battery life/performance advantages. Other enhancements within these chips include:

  • Fully integrated support for USB-C Generation 2, (G2 USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt 3 support)
  • Native HDCP 2.2 support
  • 4K video support.

We had hoped Apple would stow one of these new processors inside of the recently-introduced MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models, but this didn’t happen. It has previously been reported that Intel could only ship suitable versions of these processors starting earlier this year.
