Apple is not waiting for the WWDC to release its upgraded Macbook, which is great news for anyone eager to get their hands on the Rose Gold version. That’s not the only great thing about the upgrade though. The upgraded Macbook offers faster processor options, throws in an extra hour of battery life and features improved graphics performance.
The newly upgraded Macbook will also feature a 12-inch Retina display, Force Touch Trackpad, full-sized keyboard, and USB-C port just like its predecessors. The new processors are sixth-generation dual-core Intel Core M processors up to 1.3 GHz with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz. The latest Intel HD Graphics 515 is expected to deliver up to 25 percent improvement in graphics performance while the memory has jumped to a much faster 1866 MHz module compared to 1600MHz in last year’s version.
The upgraded MacBook battery life is extended to last up to 10 hours while browsing the web and 11 hours in case of continuous movie playback, which is an increase of one hour each over the previous model. The upgraded MacBook is available in silver, grey, and gold as well as Rose Gold.
