Experts yet do not presume to suggest what sales expects from Apple, but judging by how reluctantly bought the current MacBook and MacBook Pro due to high prices, new cheap MacBook have become a sensation.

According to Digitimes, Apple had meant to release the new machines earlier in the year with 10m Intel CPU architecture; however, due to the continued delay of Intel's 10nm rollout Apple had been forced to adapt its plans and adopt 14nm Kaby Lake chips instead.

Sadly, the same report has informed us that the iPad mini is not going to be refreshed and Apple will continue to sell the model that it previously introduced.

Word on the street is that Apple is planning on launching a refreshed MacBook Air before the end of 2018. Apple touts it as a way to charge your iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch simultaneously. No word on if Apple will also remove the Air's beloved SD card slot.

Aside from the MacBook rumor, DigiTimes also says Apple might announce two new iPad Pros. One model will be a straight update to the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, while the other will be an 11-inch tablet to replace the 10.5-inch iPad Pro. They'll both sport slim bezels and come with Face ID technology.

In addition to the new low-cost notebook, the US-based vendor is also expected to unveil three new iPhones: one featuring a 5.8-inch OLED display, one with a 6.5-inch OLED display and one with a 6.1-inch LCD display in September.

Finally, Apple's September iPhone event could be wherein we get the launch schedule for the AirPower wireless charging pad. We've seen Apple widely adopt USB-C in its laptops and desktops, and with iPad Pro line being more tangential to those devices, we could totally see USB-C being used here. Buckle up kids, this fall might be absolutely nuts if you're into new Apple goodies.
