Pocketnow Daily: Everything Apple SILENTLY CHANGED Today (video)

Don’t wait for Prime Day, Amazon is taking up to $250 off the latest iPad Pros

Apple 2019 Back to School: Get free Beats headphones with iPad Air, iPad Pro, or Mac purchase

Deals. Amazon is currently taking $250 off both models of the latest iPad Pros. Apple also already kicked off their back to school deals where thy are giving students free Beats with eligible products, Macbook Air and Macbook Pro prices are also down up to $200 for students.

Even with the whole Huawei debacle, which has affected brands like Honor, Trusted sources claim that Honor is already working on the 8X’s sequel and we might actually see it around July 23rd. It looks like it will follow the same strategy as the 8X and be priced at around $250, it will also bring the brand new 7nm octa-core Kirin 810 that is designed to compete with the Snapdragon 730, which is interesting as this is not necessarily a budget processor.

Story of the day:

New MacBook Air and Base 13-Inch MacBook Pro Have Same Keyboard as Higher-End 2019 MacBook Pros

Apple releases 2019 Retina MacBook Air with True Tone display, lowers price to $1099 — $999 for students

Apple significantly lowers Mac SSD upgrade pricing, 1 TB MacBook Air now available

A lot of changes went down at Apple last night with their Back to School refreshes, so bare with us.
○ First off, the 12-inch MacBook has been discontinued, or at least we don’t even see it on Apple’s website any more. Long live the new MacBook that I’m now happy I didn’t buy a couple of weeks ago.
○ The entry level is now only the MacBook Air, and it actually got some upgrades, like a TrueTone display and better starting price of $1099, in addition to a new higher tier model that goes up to 1TB of storage.
○ And then there are the changes to the MacBook Pro, where the non-touch bar variant is now dead, or sort of dead. See, all models now have a Touch Bar, but now and replaced with an entry level touchbar variant at $1299.
○ Probably the most interesting change is upgrades, as Cupertino is dropping the price on those across the board. To give you an idea, in the past if you wanted a 4TB SSD on a MacBook Pro, that was a $2800 premium. Yeah, that got cut in half.
○ Oh and no, you won’t be getting the new rumored scissor keyboard switches just yet.. You’ll be stuck with the improved butterfly mechanism, but Apple has even confirmed that if you have any issues, replacements are free.
And yes I wish I could give you discounted prices for iPhones but no, those retain the same
