Apple is set to release new MacBook models within the coming months, claims reliable KGI Securities Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Following on from recent news suggesting Macs are one of the only PC makers on an upwards trajectory, Kuo also says that Apple’s MacBooks have had “solid growth” among enterprise customers in recent months.

Unfortunately there’s little detail in his report about what specifics we can expend from the upgrades, but Kuo does note that the new, improved notebooks should be with us by June. It is likely that Apple will include Intel’s “Skylake” processors as part of the update, bringing CPU speed increases of 10-20 percent, an improved graphics chip, and longer and more efficient battery life.

Late last year, it was reported that Apple may debut new MacBook models at the 2016 WWDC event, which would coincide with the June date proposed by Kuo. The report suggested that Apple may opt to ditch the smaller size 11-inch MacBook Air, but add a 15-inch model, much as it currently offers with the MacBook Pro.
