What’s Next for the MacBook

Updated MacBooks, set to be released in 2017, are expected to feature minor processing improvements and other minor internal upgrades with no external changes. Next-generation MacBooks will likely adopt Intel’s next-generation Kaby Lake chips, which have been available since late 2016.

The low-power Kaby Lake chips that could be used in the MacBook boast improved graphics capabilities, 12 percent faster productivity performance and 19 percent faster web performance. Users will see improved app switching and battery life improvements.

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, next-generation MacBooks could include up to 16GB RAM as a higher-end upgrade option. Current MacBooks are limited to 8GB RAM, with no 16GB option available.

According to Bloomberg, Apple plans to introduce updated MacBook models at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June. A new processor is expected, and there could be other internal upgrades, but no design changes will be implemented.

In the future, Apple notebooks could adopt OLED displays that will be brighter and more energy efficient for longer battery life. While Apple is exploring OLED displays, it is not clear when an OLED notebook might be released.
