Part Number List Hints That Apple Could Refresh Almost All Of Its Mac Lineup At WWDC

Part Number List Hints That Apple Could Refresh Almost All Of Its Mac Lineup At WWDC

A leaked list with part numbers strongly suggests that Apple may be planning to refresh its entire Mac range at WWDC, as well as various accessories, Apple Insider reports. 27 part numbers are listed, out of which 14 appear to be Macs and 13 ‘standalone kits’ (presumably accessories).

It remains very unclear what each number represents, however according to the source who produced the photo (and 9to5Mac), ‘K5BPLUS’ represents the Mac Pro, something which has been strongly rumored to be getting an update at WWDC and is also being pulled from the shelves of Apple Stores.

As for all the other model numbers, they remain complete unknowns, however they are clearly ranked in some fashion (‘better’ and ‘best’). I reckon that the third one down ‘D2.BEST’ has got to be a top of the range Macbook Pro (if K5BPLUS is indeed a Mac Pro), as it’s the only device that could possibly come near a price point starting with a 3 (for 3,000) in Australian dollars.

That very machine has been rumored to feature a Retina Display and be ultra thin, but an apparent spec sheet for the 13 inch model later emerged seemingly dismissing those rumors. However another supposed spec sheet for the 15 inch model has just emerged today showing a Retina display and USB 3.0 ports among other things, so it could be that Apple are planning very different screen and hardware specs for the different models, as is currently the case.

All will be revealed at WWDC in five days time though, so sit tight and you should get an answer pretty quickly.

Update: 9to5Mac has now posted a clearer version of the part list, revealing 14 new Mac models, as well as updates to accessories such as the AirPort Express. Bring it on, WWDC! We’re ready!

The site has also provided additional insight into what many of the “standalone kits” may represent:

  • Standalone kits are probably iPod shuffles as the PD code represents personalization (which is engraving)
  • K5BPLUS BETTER = Entry Mac Pro
  • K5BPLUS ULTIMATE = Server Mac Pro
  • and K5BPLUS BEST = Higher End Mac Pro
  • $12.00 accessory most likely ipod shuffle connector
  • $99 MD564ZM/A would be a super drive
  • The $35 adapter would be a USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapter
