According to EMS One, the production of the new MacBoooks may begin in the second quarter.
The launch on the market will follow in the third quarter.
The report also states that the future 9.7-inch iPad will use the GF2 technology, the same used in the iPad mini.
This will allow Apple to reduce the thickness of the tablet.
Suppliers for the fifth-generation tablet include Nitto Denko, TPK, and Japan Display Inc., with assembly provided by Foxconn.
