Amidst the rumbling rumors of upcoming iPhones, rumors have also surfaced of some new hardware that may be announced at Worldwide Developers Conference 2017.
Although unusual as we are dealing with a software-only event, some clues have been left here and there. Now, fasten your seat belts that this new clue is basically "proof" that, yes, we'll see new hardware in five days at WWDC.
The french site Consomac discovered some records in Russian (Google Translate), completed for the Eurasian Economic Commission, which possibly reveal new Macs and iPads to be presented this Monday (June 5th). The document was translated by 9to5Mac:
From top to bottom, you can see four new iPad models (“‘ Apple 'brand tablet PC ”), identified as A1670, A1671, A1701 and A1709. The first two may refer to models with Wi-Fi and the other two with Wi-Fi + Cellular (3G / 4G). Following the rumors, these may be the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro (and maybe even 12.9 ″).
The big "news" of this record is the indication of a wireless keyboard (A1843), so we will probably also see the announcement of a new model of the Magic keyboard, which was last updated in 2015. It is said that Apple has already incorporated a Touch Bar (with Touch ID) in it, such as that of MacBooks Pro.
Finally, the document shows five mac models (“Personal computers trademark‘ Apple '”), identified with the numbers A1289, A1347, A1418, A1419 and A1481. When it comes to codes only, we cannot know exactly which models would be updated or released. However, if the rumors are correct, they may be new models of the 12 ″ MacBook and updates to the MacBooks Pro and even the 13 ″ MacBook Air.
Remember that if this document shows exactly what we'll see there, we can say “goodbye” to such a device with integrated Siri, as we have seen in some recent rumors. Still, if he's in Ma's plans, we may see him at another time, another special event, or he might even be announced at WWDC, but not immediately available for purchase.
The same kind of records we saw when the new MacBooks Pro, iPhones 7/7 Plus and AirPods were announced. So this is "proof" that something new in terms of hardware is coming, even if it is not announced on the stage of this WWDC.
