Alleged Part Number List Leaks Confirming More Than a Dozen New Macs On Their Way
AppleInsider and 9to5Mac independently released a list of over a dozen new Mac Models Apple plans to announce at WWDC next week.
9to5Mac claimed they released the list, which they’ve been sitting on for weeks, after AppleInsider posted the same internal list with 27 different part numbers. Apple Insider's list of numbers appear to correlate with new Apple hardware, and 9to5Mac’s list supports the correlation. Three new Mac Pro models, four MacBook Airs, four iMacs (two 21.5” and 27”), and two MacBook Pro models make the list pictured above.
The $60 standalone kits are likely new iPod shuffle models, the $99 stand alone kit could potentially be an external Super Drive, and the $35 stand alone kit might be a USB 3.0 ethernet adapter.
The three different versions of the Mac Pro breakdown by price as the AU$2,999 entry-level Mac Pro, the AU$3,599 Server Mac Pro, and the AU$4,599 higher end Mac Pro. The extended feature set of these is unknown, but the mere fact they exist is encouraging for pro users.
The MacBook Air part numbers appear to include two different screen sizes with two different builds of each. The MacBook pro on the other hand either has two different screen sizes, or one screen size with two different builds.
If the list is real, and not a hoax, Apple will make a considerable amount of people happy next week.
