Reports are showing that Apple has registered a bunch of new Macs with the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission). This leads us to believe that Apple is planning to refresh its Mac offering and that it wants to get the new devices certified so that they can launch in stores all over the world.
In addition, the getting the new Macs registered with the EEC means that Apple can sell the devices in Kazakhstan, Armenia, Belarus, Russia, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.
Apple Registers New Mac Models
The Mac models that Apple has just registered with the EEC feature the following model numbers: A1347, A1418, A1419, A1481, A1862, A1993, A2115, A2216, A1456, A1534, A1708, A1932, A1989, and A1990.
We should mention that some of the model numbers reference existing Macs that are going to receive the upcoming macOS Mojave operating system. Furthermore, four the model numbers are unique.
New 13-inch MacBook
According to multiple rumors, Apple wants to launch a brand-new 13-inch MacBook on October 30th. This Mac will be an entry-level device and the launch event will take place in New York. Not just that, but the new 13-inch MacBook is expected to be marketed as a replacement to the MacBook Air.
On the downside of things, we don’t know how much the entry-level 13-inch MacBook will be priced. Although considering that the MacBook Air is priced at $999, we believe that the new 13-inch MacBook will also sell for under $1000.
Mac Mini Refresh
Another important thing that we need to go over is the fact that Apple is expected to refresh its Mac Mini this year. Therefore, one of the model numbers mentioned before might belong to a new Mac Mini that is going to be unveiled on October 30th alongside the 13-inch MacBook.
