Apple 'Low-Cost' 13-inch MacBook To Feature Touch ID And Replace The 12-inch MacBook

2:11 PM

Throughout the year, we’ve heard many rumors, speculations, and leaks regarding Apple’s laptops. One of those laptops is a “low-cost” 13-inch MacBook that’s expected to come in the second half of 2018. This time around, the said laptop is reportedly to feature Touch ID and could possibly replace the current 12-inch MacBooks.

The Prediction

According to reports, well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that a “low-cost” 13-inch MacBook Air 2018 is coming by the end of the year and that there’s a possibility that it will replace the position of the current 12-inch MacBook. For those who are expecting for a Touch Bar, sorry but it won’t be getting that. Instead, it will be coming with a Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

Speaking about replacement, there have been conflicting theories about this. Well, to make it simple, no one can tell with full accuracy if the said laptop will sit alongside the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Air, replace one of them, or replace both of them. For this, only the Cupertino-based tech company could answer this mystery.

Ultrathin Model Coming?

A few days ago, a report was made regarding laptops and mentions about new laptops coming from Acer, Asustek, Lenovo, Dell, and Apple. With Apple, the report casually mentions that a new ultrathin MacBook is expected to be unveiled soon.

The Big September Event

Speaking of unveils, tomorrow will be the much-awaited unveiling event of the iPhone and Apple Watches. In fact, the Cupertino company has already sent out invites for the said event on Twitter which is scheduled to be held at 10:00 AM PDT.

Aside from the iPhone and smartwatch, the 2018 MacBook packed with the latest Kaby Lake or Amber Lake chips is also expected to be unveiled or introduced during the event. However, if this doesn’t happen, it could come in October instead.

Are you looking forward to the device? Also, will you be attending the event? We would like to hear your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below.
