Apple plans to announce its new laptop lineup at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) next month, sources familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

I think it's safe to say that Apple rules the world right now. Whether its constantly upgrading to the newest iPhone year after year or getting a new MacBook for work, nearly everyone has at least one Apple device. That doesn't mean Apple products are cheap thought -- quite the opposite, in fact. Well relax, Prime Day is here to help out. If you find yourself in need of a new laptop, Amazon has plenty of MacBooks on sale as part of Prime Day.
It's long been rumored that Apple may be planning to kill off the MacBook Air, but it looks like the laptop's death may be more imminent than we thought. Apple could soon release a brand new, 13-inch laptop to replace the aging MacBook Air, according to Digitimes. Taiwanese touch screen supplier General Interface Solution is expected to receive a big order from Apple for LCD displays. Apple may use the displays to introduce a totally new 13-inch MacBook toward the end of 2018, Digitimes noted. Now that Apple's MacBook Air is ten years old, the iPhone maker may be preparing to kill off the 13-inch model entirely.

This is one of those times. The proximity to Black Friday certainly helps, but what really gets Apple deals going are new product announcements.
