Apple is expected to add brand new iPad and MacBook Pro models to its lineup, reports have claimed over the past few months. "As a comparison, the previous entry-level 13" MacBook Pro without a TouchBar was running on a 2.3GHz dual-core 7th gen Intel Core i5 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz).

There's no price cut for the MacBook Pro, with prices still starting from £1,299 for the entry-level model with a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and 128GB of SSD storage. The advancements of display technology, however, would now allow Apple to pack a larger screen in a body that shouldn't be significantly larger than that of the 15-inch MacBook Pro. The first is obsolete, and the second struggled to find a place in a lineup where the new MacBook Air has more ports, more power, while also costing less.

The MacBook Pros have a TouchBar, the Air doesn't.

Both the updated devices are available today through apple.com, the Apple Store app and in select Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Resellers later this week.

The Rs. 1,19,900 price tag is the same as the outgoing non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Finally, Apples Back To School promo starts today.

The new MacBook Air, on the other hand, is unchanged except for the addition of True Tone support.

The biggest improvements, however, are to the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Ironically, the device that pushed the design ethos of the Air line even further - being the thinnest, lightest laptop Apple made - has been rendered irrelevant by Apple now that the Air line has been revitalized.

If you're interested in purchasing a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro for school, not only are education discounts available, but Apple's Back to School promotion is also offering free accessories with qualifying purchases, such as a pair of Beats Studio 3 Wireless headphones.

The 12-inch MacBook seems to have been discontinued as well, as the model is no longer listed on Apple's website.
