Apple is reportedly set to stop production of its 13-inch MacBook Pro model.

Digitimes, citing Apple’s Taiwanese supply chain manufacturers, claims that the notebook will be discontinued in the second half of 2014 in order to make way for thinner Retina display-equipped models.

“The sources pointed out that Apple has been reducing its MacBook Pro prices, narrowing the price gap between the MacBook Pro and the one equipped with Retina,” Digitimes stated.

“Apple stopped producing the 15-inch MacBook Pro in 2013 and will end production of its 13-inch model in 2014.”

Apple was estimated to have sold 17.12 million Mac devices during 2013, a decline of 1.03 per cent compared to 2012.
