Don’t expect Apple to launch new MacBooks, iMacs this year, report says

While Apple is expected to launch OS X Yosemite at a possible event in late October, you shouldn’t bank on the release of a new MacBook Air or iMac as part of the festivities, AppleInsider reports.

A super-thin MacBook Air redesign with a Retina screen was rumored to be revealed sometime by the end of this year, but this is “less certain” to occur now. In fact, the launch of a new fan-less 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina display may not occur until sometime in 2015. Digital Trends suspects that Intel’s new Core M processor, which is fan-less, could be included in a new MacBook Air.

iMacs are also expected to get revamped with Retina displays at some point, but right now, there’s “even less concrete evidence” that this will happen before the calender flips to 2015, according to the report. The same goes for the launch of a Thunderbolt Display with Retina.

Though Apple has yet to officially announce that it is holding any events next month, recent history suggests that a late October event wouldn’t be out of character for the tech giant. After all, Apple held an iPad/OS X Mavericks/MacBook showcase last October.
