Tim Cook is going to disappoint a bunch of Apple fans.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are set to take the stage at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium tomorrow, but what Apple fanboys really want today is some new MacBooks.

Cult of Mac polled more than 2,000 readers and found that while 31 percent are most excited about the iPhone 7 Plus with its dual-lens camera, another 31 percent are still eagerly awaiting the arrival of new MacBook Pros.

The smaller iPhone 7 is looking to be a lot less popular than its bigger sibling, pulling in only 21 percent of votes while the Apple Watch 2 came in last with 17 percent.

New MacBook Pros aren’t expected to make an appearance at Apple’s iPhone 7 keynote that may also include new wireless AirPods, Beats headphones, the Apple Watch 2 and iOS 10.
