MacBook Retina Arriving Before Air & Pro In June?

Word has been going around that there may be a new version of the MacBook Retina arriving before the Air and the Pro versions, which is said to be arriving in June.

Apple may decide that they want to send out the MacBook Retina silently into stores online and so all focus is going to be on the announcements that come out at the WWDC along with products and events in March.

A refresh of Skylake may also be pushed out and there are some who said that this will more than likely happen. We have also heard that the Pro will be revealed at the WWDC and that it may arrive in the 13 and 15 inch.

But what are your thoughts? Is there going to be a new MacBook Air Retina and will it come out before the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro?
