Apple may be looking to release a 13 inch version of the new MacBook Pro in October according to one analyst. AppleInsider points towards comments made by KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo, who has suggested that Apple would be releasing a 13 inch version of the device, complete with Retina Display, in October, with production of the new device starting in September.
The analyst also suggests that the reason that Apple didn’t release the 13 inch version alongside the 15 inch version that was introduced this week at WWDC was because of heat dissipation issues and a Retina Display with low availability. The new 13 inch version could also be 1mm thinner than the current version.
While analyst comments should be treated with caution, this particular analyst seems to have some insider knowledge of the new MacBook Pro as he correctly predicted that the new MacBook Pro would initially only be released in 15 inch version and that it would be released as an entirely new Mac alongside the current MacBook Pro as an additional device rather than a replacement.
