In a research note obtained by AppleInsider, Kuo predicts that Apple will start manufacturing an updated 15-inch MacBook Pro in the fourth quarter of 2017. The new MacBook will allegedly adopt desktop RAM due to restrictions of current memory system designs. As we noted earlier, Intel's H-Series processors do not support LPDDR4.
Kuo also predicts an update for the 12-inch MacBook that will enter mass production in the second quarter of 2017. It's believed that the notebook will retain the same design but get 16GB of RAM and a new processor.
New 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with upgraded processors are expected to enter mass production in the third quarter of 2017.
