Entry level Apple MacBook launch rumoured for June

Apple might be releasing an entry-level MacBook and refreshing the iPad lineup

The source claims that LG Display has been tasked with making more panels with a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution - aka Retina Displays. This new MacBook Air is said to offer a lower price tag, but apart from that not much else is known.

The report explicitly refers to the product as a 13-inch MacBook, not MacBook Air.

We recently heard talk about Apple's plans to release a cheaper MacBook Air in the second quarter of 2018. The current MacBook Pro has the same 2560 x 1600-pixel resolution. The difference in price estimates seems to be based on Apple switching display sources.

Arms imports by Egypt grew by 215 per cent over the past ten years, making it now the third-largest importer in the world. India is the world's largest weapon importer with 12% over the period under review.

Digitimes claims that Apple was originally going to use a Chinese manufacturer to make displays for this new cheaper MacBook, but has ultimately made a decision to use LG Display due to quality issues from earlier test production.

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.

A non-descriptive rumor about a MacBook Air refresh surfaced earlier this month from KGI claiming its to debut in Q2.

Knifeman killed at Iran ambassador's Vienna home, police say
According to early indications he "acted within the rules", a ministry of defence spokesman said, according to the APA agency. The unnamed soldier is in his early 20s and received non-life-threatening injuries to his left upper arm, said Soros.

LG Display will begin supplying the panel in April with the new MacBook scheduled to enter mass production at the end of May or the beginning of June. Quanta Computer won 70% of the orders, and Foxconn the rest.

Apple wants to manufacture six million units this year, although analysts expect volume to reach only four million.

It also says that parts are also being produced for a new iPad Pro hardware upgrade destined to be released in the second half of 2018. Apple sold slightly more than 5 million Macs in the company's first quarter for 2018, which is down 5 percent compared to previous year.
