mabook-pro-retina-3-640.jpgA new line of MacBook Pro computers packing in Intel's next-generation Haswell processors are tipped to be the headline hardware act at Apple's WWDC 2013 event.

That's according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities in a note (acquired by Apple Insider), whose usually pretty accurate with his predictions, also stating that a new version of Mac OS X is likely to feature alongside the new computing hardware at the Moscone Center.

Apart from a spec-bump, Kuo doesn't expect to see any design shake-ups hit the line - Retina MacBook's will still be slim and sans optical drive, while the regular MacBook Pro will hold onto the disc drive.

The Intel chip rumour makes sense; a worthy year-on-year upgrade over last year's Ivy Bridge models, with the Haswell line being revealed on June 3rd, a week ahead of WWDC 2013.

As for the rumoured MacBook Air computers with high-resolution Retina displays, Kuo suggests we shouldn't hold our breath. More likely is a first look at iOS 7, Apple's mobile operating system, which is well overdue a revamp considering the shaky launch of iOS 6. Under Jony Ive's new leadership, it could be an interesting upgrade for the iPhone/ iPad operating system.

WWDC 2013, aimed at developers working on Apple platforms, sold out in just two minutes last week, with the 5,000 person capacity event shifting all of its $1,599 tickets.
