A new report from the China Times is suggesting that we may see Haswell-based Apple MacBook Pros arriving in stores and online in October. The report claims that supply chain sources said the production has been moving forward at a steady pace and everything is on schedule for the devices to arrive in the fall.
The update to Haswell will not offer much in terms of a performance gain, but users will see a massive increase in battery life over the previous generations of MacBook Pro. These rumors seem to confirm an earlier report from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities who said that:
Retina MacBook Pro to be slimmer slightly, along with a camera upgrade. We expect the 13" Retina MacBook Pro will have a slightly slimmer form factor for increasing its portability. Also, we think the camera spec will be upgraded from HD to full HD. This will improve Facetime and video conference quality in the high resolution Retina display.
