Entry level Apple MacBook launch rumoured for June

Apple-Macbook-Air

All this is speculation, of course, but we've heard previous rumors that Apple will be offering a new entry-level 13-inch MacBook, which could even potentially replace the MacBook Air. The new model is said to be priced the same as, or slightly higher, than the current MacBook Air.

Ming-Chi Kuo says the new laptop is coming this year and DigiTimes says it's coming in June.

It's also possible that Apple will introduce a new 13-inch Retina MacBook as rumored here, and will also substantially cut the price of the existing MacBook Air to keep it as a more tempting entry-level option.

This rumour is given fuel, as not only does the current MacBook sport a Retina display, but LG's display-making division has been ramping up production of a-SI panels sporting a Retina-grade resolution of 2,560x1,600.

According to this new report from DigiTimes, the new entry-level MacBook is likely to have a similar price tag to the MacBook Air, which starts to $999. And we've also heard more recently on the grapevine that Apple is planning to debut a new, cheaper 13-inch MacBook Air. The MacBook, meanwhile, has a 12-inch display with 2304 x 1440 resolution.

Apple was supposedly set to use a Chinese manufacturer to make the display for the new MacBook, however, as a result of quality issues, they are now using LG Display.

DigiTimes Research senior analyst Jim Hsiao expects shipments of the new MacBook to only reach about two thirds of Apple's expectations in 2018. As for the assembly, Quanta Computer obtains 70% of the orders and Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) 30%. Apple is expected to release the new 9.7-inch iPad in the second quarter of 2018, and the new iPad Pro in the second half of the year.
