A recent leak on Reddit revealed some of Apple's hardware plans ahead of the company's big WWDC developer event.

Is Apple Launching A New Macbook Pro?

One of the leaks speaks of Apple's AR projects, codenamed "Project Mirrorshades", which are still in the early stages of testing and planned for a 2019 launch. We don't know much more beyond that.

The second leak talks about the iPhone 8, where it says that the Touch ID sensor will indeed be on the front of the device, a rumor we have been hearing for a while.

The leak then talks about the Siri Speaker, which we're expecting to see unveiled at WWDC next week. The source says it looks like a smaller Mac Pro, and won't come with a camera and screen.

Finally, the leak also said  that Apple's iMac and MacBook Pro lines would be getting some spec bumps during the course of 2017, but planned improvements to the design of both ranges won't happen until 2018, so adjust your buying plans accordingly. Also expect e-ink keyboards.

Sure these are all leaks, so don't take any of this seriously yet. WWDC is just around the corner, where we can confirm all of these leaks.
