Crucially however, the rumoured MacBook is set to have a price closer to that of the current generation of 13-inch MacBook Airs.

Apple is preparing to release a new entry-level MacBook at the end of the second quarter with a price tag expected to be about the same level as that of the existing MacBook Air or slightly higher, according to Digitimes Research.

Perhaps when the new accessibly priced MacBook reaches the market in June it will sport one of Apple's new patented keyboard designs.

Whilst it seems like it will be cheaper than the current 12-inch MacBook which costs $1299, Digitimes is not very precise when it comes to pricing.

The highlights are the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 , with the phones expected to get Oreo on March 19 and 28, respectively. The report reveals that the internal construction of Galaxy S9 + is remarkably similar to the Galaxy S8+.

A report by Digitimes reveals that Apple is indeed looking to bring back the "affordable" MacBook after having focused on its premium MacBook Pro variants for the past couple of years. KGI reported last week that Apple would make a cheaper 13-inch MacBook Air this year too.

The new MacBook will reportedly enter mass production at the end of May or the beginning of June for a June launch, at which time it will face fierce competition from the likes of the Dell XPS 13 ($999) and HP Envy 13t ($899). Said panel, by the way, should come from LG Display, even though Apple may have initially struck a supply deal with an unspecified "China-based maker".

The soldier sustained cuts to his right arm but was protected from more serious injuries by his stab-proof jacket. Police said the guard, a 23-year-old Austrian soldier, first tried to deter the assailant with pepper spray.

70% of the orders will be handled by Quanta and 30% by Foxconn and Apple is likely to ship between four and six million units in 2018.

Finally, the same Digitimes says that Apple is also going to release a new "inexpensive" 9.7-inch iPad, which will be a refreshed version of the current model. 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.
