No hardware debuts during WWDC 2021 keynote, says leaker

    New hardware can drop at any time when Apple is ready. They will just have a smaller event like they did for the M1 launch.  It could happen next month or this fall, etc. Remember, they are planning to update the entire Mac lineup by the end of 2022.  For many tasks right now the M1 is doing extremely well. A beefier updated version with more cores, RAM, GPU is coming.  We just have to be patient.  For me, I can breathe a sigh of relief that the most popular MBP line isn't going away just yet. Thus giving corporate more time to buy up the remaining Intel 16" models.  Most corporate and student MDM environments are not ready for Apple Silicon just yet.  There's a lot of legacy software still taking their sweet time to produce Universal Apps, etc. If they do ship 16" MBP with Apple Silicon M1X / M2 or whatever they decide to call the new SoC designs, I hope they still sell the Intel models for a bit longer.  At least a year longer.

     Occasionally, OCCASIONALLY Apple will release hardware to coincide with WWDC, but it is the exception rather than the rule. 
    One hell of an exception list

    Higher end MacBook Pro's are developer fodder.  I would be more surprised if they didn't at least hint at them today.  I really want to order one!
    Surprise, not a hint, not a word, nothing.

    It always was a stretch and felt like the next gen stuff would be later this fall. 

    But man did I want to believe I'd be fighting to place a pre-order right now  :#

    Come on folks. They can't even ship what they've already announced (iPad 12.9" 5th Gen.)  When they have the manufacturing capacity to announce new hardware, they will do so.
