A few months ago, we told you that Apple plans to bring several low-cost devices to market, similar to its most powerful products like iPhone X, but with fewer features. In the case of the MacBook, the company Apple will also develop a much cheaper laptop similar to the MacBook Air, this new MacBook Air will be 13 inches, and although it will come with great features, a new rumor shows that it will not use the 10nm processors that Intel is developing.
A recent Economic Daily News report shows that the new 13-inch MacBook is equipped with an eighth-generation Intel processor, the revised motherboard will contain an Intel Kaby Lake series chipset.
Although Apple hasn’t updated its MacBook Air for some time, switching from Broadwell processors to Kaby Lake won’t result in significant cost savings.
The report also suggests that Apple’s decision to use the 14nm Kaby Lake Refresh processors is due to repeated delays in the transition to Cannon Lake chips based on a 10nm process, although they already have a release date, will not be ready until late 2019.
Grayshift ensures that it can hack into iOS 12 despite new measures.
This is a considerable time span as Apple plans to launch its computers between October and November of this year.
The Kaby Lake Refresh line includes Core i5 and Core i7 quad-core processors with clock frequencies between 1.6 GHz and 1.9 GHz and maximum turbo boost speeds between 3.4 GHz and 4.2 GHz. The 15W chipsets include built-in Intel UHD Graphics 620, with support for up to 32GB DDR4 or LPDDR3 RAM.
Apple has not yet confirmed this information, but considering that we are now on the verge of releasing MacBook Air, which is expected in October, a month after the launch of its new iPhones, AirPods, and AirPower.
