Apple will introduce a budget MacBook

Apple's upcoming keynote is expected to be an exciting one, and we want you to participate in the polls below and let us know down in the comments on what you think should be an "inexpensive" price for the upcoming MacBook.

Global market research firm TrendForce has today released its rankings of leading notebook brands for 2Q18 in terms of notebook shipments during the period, according to which Apple has dropped to sixth place with a market share of only 6.5%. Apparently Apple originally planned to ship the new MacBook in late 2017 with a 10 nm Kaby Lake processor, but Intel's manufacturing delay into late 2019 forced the company to release the computer now with the 14 nm chip. As of now, all versions of this device are still available on the company's website.

Apple is gearing up to introduce a new 13-inch "entry-level" MacBook this September.

The current MacBook Air is still a hugely popular model, although it hasn't seen a substantial upgrade in over three years.

China optimistic about summit between Korean leaders
However, the president said inter-Korean cooperation may take off in earnest only after the North completely denuclearises. But the North Korean leadership has reason to act with urgency on the issue of an official peace treaty.

The budget MacBook was expected to see the light of day at the end of past year. In terms of graphics card, Apple will continue to use the Radeon graphics.

According to Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo who is the world's most reliable Apple's Analyst, say that there will be a $999 notebook coming this year. Both iPads are expected to have slimmer bezels, no home button, and Face ID.

It's doubtful, however, that Apple chooses to unveil a new MacBook Air at its iPhone event. Interestingly, DigiTimes also says the iPad mini 4 will remain the way it is now with no new update in tow.

Finally, the sources said that Apple is finally ready to launch its long-awaited AirPower wireless charger. Buckle up kids, this fall might be absolutely nuts if you're into new Apple goodies.
