We could see something at WWDC 2019

It’s entirely possible that a 2019 MacBook will emerge at WDDC on June 3. Apple’s keynote at this event last year did not include any hardware, but the rumored splitting of iTunes into separate apps could be supplemented with the announcement of a new MacBook.

That said, don’t hold your breath.

What new features will the next MacBook have?

Although there is little information forthcoming about the next MacBook, the rumor mill still has something to offer.

Another patent points to a new metal finish, which would make MacBooks and iPhones impervious to scratches. For daily users, this would be a very welcome cosmetic upgrade.

Expect a more powerful device
