The dust has settled. Google just had its turn to showcase its latest innovations at Google I/O 2013. Now, it's Apple's chance to fire back.

And with WWDC 2013 just around the corner, speculations are at its highest. According to KGI securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's firepower will include updates to its MacBook Pro and MacBook Air line-up. Apple's biggest gun, however, is the move to Intel's Haswell processors.

In a report earlier today, he writes, "We expect the new MacBook, featuring an upgrade to Intel’s (US) Haswell processor, will be in the spotlight for Apple at the upcoming WWDC from June 10."

Ming-Chi Kuo prophetically adds that Apple's MacBook Pro will be slimmer and will sport a 1080p full HD camera at the front, which is expected to improve the Facetime experience. Kuo's wild prediction doesn't stop there. He further speculates that the new MacBook Air will feature dual built-in microphones that will deliver clear voice quality.

Finally, Apple's shift to SSD is also expected to rise. "We estimate the market share of  MacBook with SSD to rise from 45% in 2012 to 64% in 2013, far ahead of the industry’s 15-20%. We also expect SSD penetration to continue to trend up, with SSD eventually replacing conventional hard disk drive and optical disc drive," Kuo said.
