As per past history, Apple is going to launch the new line of premium iPhone next month and iOS 12 for the public. As per the recent news, the tech giant will also add a new 13-inch MacBook to replace the current MacBook Air.
The rumored MacBook will feature a 13-inch display and come powered by Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake processor. The entry-level MacBook is likely to be priced at USD 1,200, DigiTimes reported.
The entry-level 13-inch MacBook is rumored to feature a Retina display and USB-C ports. It is also expected to come with the new-generation butterfly keyboard akin to the MacBook Pros.
In addition to the new MacBook, Apple is also expected to introduce redesigned iPad Pros with slimmer bezels. The company may also start shipping the 3-in-1 AirPower wireless charger for USD 150-200. (ANI).
This new range is said to feature Intel’s 14nm Kaby Lake processor and is expected to be priced at around $1,200.
Apple is said to ship eight million units of its 13-inch affordable MacBook model in 2018. According to the report, the laptop was scheduled to launch in the fourth quarter of 2017, but it was delayed due to “Intel’s issues with its 10nm manufacturing process.”
Intel will start manufacturing its 10nm CPUs in the second half of 2019, the reason why Apple has switched to the company’s 14nm Kaby Lake processor on the new MacBook.
Apple could also launch two new iPad Pro models, one with a 12.9-inch screen and another with 11-inch display. The tablets will support fast charging thanks to the new 18W power adapter and a USB Type-C port.
The upcoming 11-inch iPad Pro will replace the existing 10.5-inch iPad Pro variant. Alongside three new iPhone models, new MacBook Air, and iPad Pros, Apple is also expected to unveil AirPods 2, Apple Watch 4, iMacs, and a Mac Mini in September.
