Apple may launch low-cost MacBook series in 2024: Report
The iPhone maker is planning to release a new type of product that's different from their current MacBook Air and Pro laptops. This new product will still have a metal exterior but will be made from cheaper materials.
A low-cost MacBook series is apparently being developed by Cupertino-based tech giant Apple to compete with Chromebook models in the educational market. The second half of 2024 may see the introduction of this budget-friendly MacBook line.
The manufacturer of the iPhone is preparing to introduce a brand-new product that will differ from their present MacBook Air and Pro computers. Although it will be composed of less expensive components, this new product will nonetheless have a metal exterior. According to industry insiders consulted by DigiTimes, this change is anticipated to lower the cost of the internal parts.
According to the reports, key Apple suppliers including Quanta Computer and Foxconn have not indicated that a new MacBook series will be released in the first half of next year.
Reports further said more than 13.9 million Chromebooks were shipped in 2019, rising to more than 30.4 million in 2020 and 33.5 million in 2021, demonstrating the appeal of Google's inexpensive laptops in the education sector, particularly during and around the worldwide pandemic.
The firm is still selling more Chromebooks than it did before to COVID, despite the fact that sales have slowed down a little after the epidemic ended. In recent years, several schools have opted for Chromebooks instead of Apple iPads.
The iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max/Ultra are among the four new iPhones that Apple is likely to introduce at its 'Wonderlust' event next week on September 12. All of the most recent iPhones will include a USB-C connector and the Dynamic Island function, according to leaks.
Additionally, according to some reports, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max would include extra features including a titanium frame, a programmable Action button, an A17 Bionic CPU, Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, and more. The elegant titanium frame of the next iPhone 15 Pro models could be lighter than the previous stainless steel frame.
