Production of Apple’s 5nm-based A14X SoC that will be found inside the company’s upcoming Macs and new iPad Pro models will enter into mass production in the fourth quarter of this year.
Rumors surrounding the 16-inch MacBook Pro are picking up steam. The latest one from DigiTimes claims that Apple will launch the new 16-inch MacBook Pro in September — a claim which was also made by an IHS Markit analyst last month.
Apple’s switch to USB-C means its beloved MagSafe connector probably won’t feature on its next-generation MacBooks, but that doesn’t mean it will die out completely. One reliable analyst claims Apple could introduce a “MagSafe-life” USB-C adapter with the new MacBook Pro.
Apple has reportedly teamed up with an Australian startup to bring E Ink keyboards to its 2018 MacBook lineup. The new keyboards will have the ability to display any alphabet, plus special characters and emoji, according to sources familiar with the plans.
A few days back, Bloomberg reiterated rumors that Apple was planning the first significant overhaul of the MacBook Pro in four years.
Apple overhauled almost everything for its brand new MacBook — including its connectivity options. Gone are the USB ports and MagSafe connector that has long been a trademark of Apple notebooks, and in comes USB-C, a brand new, do-it-all standard that John Gruber claims Apple invented.
Finding accessories that support different pieces of technology isn’t always easy, and that has been especially the case with previous generation Macs.
Alongside its report detailing Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro on Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal also shared some interesting details about the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air — which has already entered mass production, according to sources.
Apple has kept to its yearly refresh cycle for quite some time when it comes to most of its products, which means it’s about time for the MacBook Air lineup to get a refresh.
Apple is expected to deliver new MacBook Airs this month, but they won’t be the all-new models we’ve all been waiting for. Instead, they’ll likely be refreshed versions of the existing lineup with some welcome improvements, such as Intel’s latest Core processors.
