Apple could release a refreshed version of the 12-inch MacBook with a new Intel chip, according to the report.
A second version of the 12-inch MacBook with a faster Intel chip is also planned for launch.
One of the complaints about Apple's MacBook laptop is that the current processor is optimized for battery life, not for performance. A new model using a different Intel chip could make the device more attractive to a wider swath of users at the expense of battery life.
Finally, Apple may update its least expensive laptop, the MacBook Air, with a new processor as well.
For the past few years, Apple's developers conferences haven't seen the company launch new hardware. But Apple is planning to launch something this year - previous rumors have suggested a smart speaker and possibly a new iPad Pro.
Last fall, Apple launched new MacBook Pros with a touchscreen integrated into the keyboard. Although the company says that sales of the new laptops are robust, many professional users who wanted a new high-end laptop were disappointed.
