Apple will launch a thinner MacBook near the end of this year or early next year, claims a report from Digitimes. This report is based on the sources from supply chain in Taiwan which suggests that production of thinner MacBook components have already begun in smaller volumes to be ready for the launch by the end of the year. As earlier shared, Cupertino will stop the production of 13-inch MacBook Pro by this year – the line hasn’t been updated since June 2012.

Dropping the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro has become quite essential for the company as it is movingtowards dropping all the non-Retina products and introducing the beautiful display in each of its products. Reports earlier had indicated Apple working on an ultra-thin 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina display which will help the company find a middle ground between 11-inch and the 13-inch models, also creating a notebook that is distinctive from its tablets.
