The last major update of the MacBook dates back to 2016 with the launch of the new MacBook Pro. According to information from DigiTimes, Apple would prepare a new entry-level MacBook with a screen of 13 inch.

In October 2016 the fourth generation of MacBook Pro was released. In addition to greatly improved performance compared to previous models, the big news was the arrival of the Touch Bar. The latter is actually a touch bar providing more ergonomics in the use of the manufacturer’s laptop. In June 2017, fourth-generation devices experienced some component improvements. In addition, the 13-inch MacBook Pro has gone from 256 GB to 128 GB of storage memory, and has seen its prices drop.

Without doubt in order to make its laptop more accessible, Apple would consider a 13-inch MacBook entry level. Supplier of the brand’s LCD screens, General Interface Solution is awaiting an order to equip this new MacBook. Always according to DigiTimes, the marketing of this new device should take place this year, during the second half. Note that General Interface Solution has been supplying Apple since the last quarter of 2017 only.
