Ahead of WWDC 2016, Apple has today announced a slight refresh to its range of MacBook notebooks, which will now feature upgraded Intel processors, better graphics performance, faster flash storage and a longer battery life according to the company.

First up is the 12-Retina MacBook, which now features a dual-core Intel Core M processor, with speeds of up to 1.3GHz and a Turbo Boost speeds of up to 3.1GHz.

It also features 1,866MHz RAM, and an Intel HD Graphics 515 GPU.

Apple says this results in 25 percent faster graphics than the previous version, with a new battery that they say will last up to 10 hours of wireless web browsing, or 11 for iTunes movie playback.

This MacBook also features the same USB Type-C input as before, alongside 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and OS C El Captian pre-installed.

It will be available from Apple’s website and stores from £1,049 for the base 1.1GHz model, which has 8GB of RAM and a 256GB flash drive, or from £1,299 for the version with a 512GB flash drive, 8GB of RAM and 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core m5 processor.

There’s also the 1.3GHz model available.

On top of all this, Apple have also released a rose gold version of the MacBook, and upgraded the MacBook Air with 8GB of RAM as standard.
