Although Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) has only been scheduled for June, speculation is already circulating about what the tech giant will showcase at the event. We may have just gotten a glimpse at what will be on the menu, in a tempting bit of good news.

In his newest Power On email, journalist Mark Gurman provides the hint. According to the source, Apple might unveil two new Macs at WWDC, with more to follow later this year or in 2023.

The WWDC date, on the other hand, is a little deviation from Gurman's earlier position, which was that the MacBook Air will be available in time for the holidays. Other sources, such as respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, disagreed, predicting the laptop will be released in the late summer or early fall.

Other WWDC prospects, according to Gurman's newsletter, are the Mac Mini, the 24-inch iMac, and the 13-inch MacBook Pro. All three gadgets have been strongly rumored for this year, with the first appearing to be the most plausible, given that the Mac Mini series hasn't been updated since 2020.

According to Gurman, the 2020 WWDC would be an appropriate moment to debut new Macs because it was at this event in 2020 that Apple first declared that its laptops will begin to shift away from Intel CPUs and toward its own chips. WWDC is also a developer-focused event, and showcasing new Macs would provide attendees a glimpse into future software development possibilities.

Surprisingly, Apple's Power On email reminds us that the new Mac Pro and iMac Pro models are still in the works. Despite Apple previously claiming that the 27-inch iMac was "end of life," Gurman appears to be optimistic that the firm would offer an upgraded version of its bigger all-in-one desktop.

Gurman's views are in line with those of other well-known Apple experts like Kuo and Ross Young, who feel the bigger iMac is ready for a revamp as well (although perhaps not until 2023). That may provide some comfort to those looking for an upgrade to the bigger iMac in the near future.
