‚Entry-Level‘ 13-inch MacBook, Redesigned iPad Pros With Faster 18W USB-C Charger Coming in September, But no New iPad Mini

Apple will launch its much-rumored „entry-level“ MacBook in September, according to a report by DigiTimes outlining Apple’s upcoming product launches. The website says the new MacBook will be priced at $1200, according to industry sources, and will be powered by 14-nanometer Kaby Lake CPU architecture, following delays to Intel’s 10-nm rollout.

Earlier this year, DigiTimes said that Apple will release the first MacBook Air with a Retina display in the second half of 2018, and claimed that it will be a 13-inch model in a separate report. It also recently said Quanta will assemble new „inexpensive notebooks“ for Apple in the fourth [...]

Throttling in New i9 MacBook Pros Appears to be Due to Power Delivery Chip

A user posting on reddit and in the MacRumors forums has given a detailed account of their findings and attempts to circumvent the throttling previously discovered on the new MacBook Pro 15″ models featuring the six-core i9 Intel CPUs.

The user goes on to explain that one of the internal power limits set for the device may not be appropriate for the power draw of the CPU and identical to previous MacBook Pro models, causing the power delivery chip (known as a voltage regulation module, or VRM) to report an over power condition that forces the clock of the CPU down to scale back power. This sets up the same conditions to allow throttling to occur once again.

2018 MacBook Pros Have New ‚Titan Ridge‘ Thunderbolt 3 Controller, But DisplayPort 1.4 Isn’t Truly Supported

Earlier this week, the repair experts at iFixit opened up the 2018 MacBook Pro, uncovering Intel’s new JHL7540 Thunderbolt 3 controller, introduced earlier this year as part of its „Titan Ridge“ family.

While the specifications for the JHL7540 lists compatibility with DisplayPort 1.4 on Intel’s product database, it’s not as clear-cut as it sounds, as support also relies on graphics, which vary by MacBook Pro model.

MacRumors reached out to Apple for clarification. Here’s what we learned:

The new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models support DisplayPort at High-Bit Rate 3 (HBR3), a signal standard of both DisplayPort 1.3 [...]

2018 MacBook Pro’s ‚Quieter‘ Keyboard Compared to Previous MacBook Pro Keyboard

Apple’s new 2018 MacBook Pro models feature a third-generation butterfly keyboard, which Apple says has been improved for a „quieter typing experience.“

The difference in sound between the quieter 2018 MacBook Pro keyboard and the older butterfly keyboard in an earlier version of the MacBook Pro has been demoed in video by TechCrunch, with the difference in sound clearly audible.

The sound coming from the 2018 MacBook Pro keyboard is noticeably muffled compared to the sound coming from the previous-generation MacBook Pro, which, as TechCrunch points out, sounds much more like a typewriter.

Multiple hands-on experiences with the 2018 [...]
