New 13-inch Retina MacBook, cheap iPad rumors in 2018

By Alan Ng - Mar 12, 2018

We have yet more rumors to share now on Apple’s plans to introduce several ‘cheaper’ models onto the market as early as Summer 2018.

The last we spoke of this, analysts predicted that Apple would be releasing a ‘cheaper’ 13-inch MacBook Air, but now Digitimes has offered more insight into this which could be even better news for fans.

The publication has gone on record to say that in June, Apple will release a 13-inch Retina MacBook which is likely to be the previously mentioned 13-inch affordable MacBook Air.

If true this new model will be coming with a 2560 x 1600 resolution, giving it the same display quality as a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a significant bump up in quality from the current 13-inch MacBook Air which comes with a 1440 x 900 resolution.

On top of this, Digitimes also say a cheaper iPad is coming as well which is the first time we have heard of such rumors. We know that Apple has plans to introduce an iPad Pro with Face ID, but an entry level 9.7-inch iPad would be a big hit as well should it happen.

Are you happy about this and would consider buying a cheaper Retina quality MacBook and cheaper 9.7-inch iPad?
