Apple’s 271 Release: The Cheap iPhone SE and the New MacBook Air




We present to your attention the next issue of the news program Apple News. Today we will talk about the new MacBook Air, cheap iPhone SE and much more!

1. Less than a month before the planned presentation, Apple registered a new Apple Watch in the Eurasian Economic Commission. This follows from the materials of the official website of the regulator.

2. The retail price of the iPhone SE on the Russian market dropped to 15 thousand rubles, making the cheapest iPhone even cheaper. For this money, consumers are offered a “restored” version with a memory capacity of 16 GB.

3. On the night of August 23-24, Apple unexpectedly released a tenth beta version of iOS 12. The 47MB update is already available for download by air to owners of compatible devices that have a developer account.

4. Presentation of the new iPhone will almost certainly take place on September 12th. The journalists of the German edition of Macerkopf were told by representatives of local telecom operators. They also confirmed the date of the beginning of the acceptance of pre-orders, which will start in two days, on September 14.

The practice has developed in such a way that under Tim Cook all the new iPhone was presented on Tuesday or Wednesday, which fell on 7, 9, 10 or 12 September. This year, September 7 falls on Friday, the 9th on Sunday, the 10th on Monday, which Apple tries to avoid as a fire, and the 11th for obvious reasons is not taken into account at all.

From this we can make a logical conclusion that Apple simply does not have any other options, except how to hold a presentation on September 12. The same version is followed by a number of industry sources that have authority in such matters.

5. The unknown iPhone based on the A10 processor, found in Xcode, is almost certainly not the iPhone 9, as originally thought. This statement was made by the developer Stephen Troton-Smith, who drew attention to the characteristics of the display of the future smartphone, typical for models with a 16: 9 aspect ratio.

According to Troton-Smith, most likely, Xcode “lit up” the updated version of the iPhone 7, which will be the most affordable solution in the Apple lineup. At least, the fact that the “seven” is in front of us, indicates the ratio of the sides of the display and its resolution.

Earlier it became known that this year Apple again plans to introduce three models of the iPhone. One of them – the base one – will differ from the more advanced versions of the LCD panel instead of the OLED, aluminum edging instead of the iron one, and also a single rather than a dual module of the main camera.

6. For months, rumors have been circulating that Apple may release an updated MacBook Air this year, which will receive the Retina screen. It is expected that the new laptop will be the most inexpensive in the company’s line-up, and Apple seems to have found how to achieve it.

According to the publication DigiTimes, from the end of last year, Apple issued certification to two Chinese companies – Shenzhen Everwin Precision Technology and AAC Technologies, which will supply components for the MacBook this year. New suppliers were cheaper than Taiwanese, so it is expected that such a partnership will have a positive impact on reducing the cost of the MacBook.

Analysts agree that on average this will reduce the price of the MacBook by 50-100 dollars. If Apple manages to make a price tag for the new MacBook Air Retina at $ 999, it will be a serious bid in the notebook market.
