TrendForce reports Apple will release a new MacBook Air at the end of the third quarter.
There are many rumors about Apple releasing a new budget MacBook this year. Some say it won't be a MacBook Air, others say it will be.
Now, Taiwanese research firm TrendForce reports Apple will release a new MacBook Air model at the end of this quarter, which will be in September or October. TrendForce also predicted the release of new MacBook Pro models at the start of the quarter, which was in July. It's unclear whether the new MacBook Air will be instead of the rumored budget MacBook for students, or if it will be an extra notebook, alongside the cheaper MacBook.
The budget MacBook, which Apple is also expected to release this year, will be very popular among students because of its lower price, without compromising on the specifications. The MacBook Air turned out to be very popular among students in the past as well, and is also rumored to get cheaper, so I personally don't think Apple will release both the budget MacBook and a new MacBook Air.
