MacBook Pro's delivery forecast may be another hint of a WWDC upgrade [atualizado: iPads Pro também]

A few weeks ago, Bloomberg stated that the keynote of Worldwide Developers Conference 2017 may be the stage for updates on MacBook lines.

From yesterday to today, Apple's own online store has given some indication that this may be true. But in the strongest indicative; I explain below.

MacBooks Pro Delivery Forecast

As shown in the screenshot above, in fact, when you are logged in to the US Apple Online Store or have placed a zip code to check product delivery forecasts, 15-inch MacBooks Pro with Touch Bar now indicate a minimum lead time that coincides with the WWDC keynote date (June 5).

However: 1. This happens only for 15 ? models (hardly 13 ? would not be updated in the event either); 2. if you are not logged in or with the cookie in store, the forecast forecast for these ?3-5 business days? models; and 3. In Brazil and in several other countries, the forecast is also normal.

Still, it is nonetheless curious and there are reports of other online stores also running low on stocks of 15 ? MBPs. You will see more units left than the 13 ? and yet, it will be updated next week still, it is worth remembering that Apple has already updated different sizes at separate times in the past.

We'll see, a few days left.

According to the reader Filipe Espsito warned in the comments, the 12.9 inch Pro iPads have a delivery time of 1-2 weeks (both in Brazil and the USA).

Interestingly, the biggest rumor involving a possible iPad upgrade covers precisely the replacement of the 9.7 ? model with a 10.5 ? model. On the other hand, it would be very strange for Apple to launch a new 10.5 ? iPad and keep the 12.9 ? the way it is (remembering that the current larger model even was released before the smaller one).
