A brand new story says the cheaper MacBook will arrive in September, and that it might not be as cheap as initially expected.
Taiwanese analytics firm TrendForce wrote in its latest market report that Apple is set to release new MacBooks this quarter as it comes out of a transition period. As of now, all versions of this device are still available on the company's website.
After a hiatus, reports that Apple will launch an affordable MacBook soon are intensifying again, with Apple expected to launch the new laptop series by Christmas. It's also highly likely the laptop will sport the third-generation "butterfly" keyboard that Apple introduced on the latest MacBook Pros. No word on if Apple will also remove the Air's beloved SD card slot. Both iPads are expected to have slimmer bezels, no home button, and Face ID.
The two new iPad Pros will come with a newly-designed 18W power adapter featuring USB Type-C interface for a faster charging experience. That could either mean Apple will continue selling the small tablet without updating it, or it will be discontinued.
In addition to the new low-cost notebook, the US-based vendor is also expected to unveil three new iPhones: one featuring a 5.8-inch OLED display, one with a 6.5-inch OLED display and one with a 6.1-inch LCD display in September.
Finally, DigiTimes also touches on the AirPower wireless charging mat that was originally unveiled previous year alongside the iPhone X. In the report, it's said the accessory will receive a "launch schedule" during Apple's upcoming September event and will be priced around $160 to $190. Buckle up kids, this fall might be absolutely nuts if you're into new Apple goodies.
