The 2018 MacBook isn’t coming soon. Apple didn’t announce a new model in September or October. Now that November is here we’re looking further out to the 2019 MacBook.
Since announcing the 12-inch MacBook we’ve seen a new one every year like clockwork, but not in 2018. This guide covers why you should wait for the 2019 MacBook with a 12-inch screen and why you might not want to wait for a new model.
If you are planning to buy a MacBook, your options are to buy the current 2017 MacBook with a 12-inch screen, buy the 2018 MacBook Air or to wait for the 2019 MacBook to see what Apple has to offer. The good news is we have a good idea of what Apple plans to add.
That said, there is a bigger reason than normal to wait, as Apple may be bringing a budget 13-inch MacBook to the mix this year. Apple supports notebooks for a long time, so even if you buy the current model, you can expect software updates for years.
For a lot of users the 2017 MacBook is still worth buying in 2018 and the 2018 MacBook Air is a very tempting option with updated specs, a Retina Display and Touch ID.
Here are the Reasons to Wait for the 2019 MacBook;
- Wait for Better Performance
- Wait for Better Battery Life
- Wait if You Keep Your MacBook For a Long Time

2019 MacBook Rumors
So far the 2019 MacBook rumors are sparse. We have a few 2018 MacBook rumors, but now that it is November, we don’t expect a new model in 2018. Bloomberg reported that Apple was planning a 2018 MacBook release for the fall, but we don’t see these announced after October. If Apple planned to sell a 2018 MacBook, we would have expected them to preview it at the October event.
Apple is working on custom chips called co-processors that work alongside the Intel processor. Bloomberg reports that at least three models will come with updated T co-processors this year. So far the co-processors are in the MacBook Pro and the iMac Pro. At the October event Apple announced the 2018 MacBook Air with T co-processors.
At this point it is more likely that the new MacBook will be the 2019 MacBook, than a late 2018 release.
