The new 12-inch Retina MacBook was seen as the Air's replacement, and Apple did kill the 11-inch model.

A report by Digitimes reveals that Apple is indeed looking to bring back the "affordable" MacBook after having focused on its premium MacBook Pro variants for the past couple of years.

According to a report published today by DigiTimes, Apple is readying a new entry level MacBook laptop for release in June. It'll be priced somewhere around the $999 price point the current Air sits at, although it may cost a bit more or less. DigiTimes says its research shows the MacBook will use a 13.3-inch 2,560 x 1,600 resolution panel-the same as the current 13.3-inch MacBook Pro. News from Asia, however, says that Apple might not reduce the price of the laptop. We can expect a new iPad Pro this year, with a new bezel design, and the home button removed in favour of Face ID. The screen will have the same 2560 x 1600 resolution as the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro and 12-inch MacBook both now start at $1,299, and Apple could really use a more affordable option in it lineup.

As for the new iPads, Apple is said to upgrade the current 9.7-inch model likely with a new processor and price it around $300 or so. As for the assembly, Quanta Computer obtains 70% of the orders and Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) 30%. The new entry-level iPad will reportedly launch in Q2 2018. The new 9.7-inch iPad is expected to arrive in the second quarter, perhaps alongside the new MacBook at WWDC.

Meanwhile, suppliers have recently begun shipping components for an upgraded iPad Pro and a new low-cost 9.7-inch iPad.
