After much anticipation, Apple has finally set the Macbook Air 2016 release date. Fans should be excited!
In article by Ewan Spence on Forbes, he revealed that Apple has already sent out invitations to the media to join CEO Tim Cook and the rest of the team this coming October 27 at the Apple Campus, Cupertino.
Apple seems to have been playing favorites, proof of which are the annual launches of their iPhone and iPad models. While followers have long awaited the new line of Macbook Air, it seems that the long wait is over.
Macbook Air 2016 Price & Specs
Tech experts forecast specs and features of the new line but expect no major changes to the current device. According to Mobile n Apps, the current 11-inch MacBook Air sells at £749 ($899, AU$1,399) while its 13-inch counterpart price is at £849 ($999, AU$1,549). Now, sources reveal that the Macbook Air 2016 13-inch will be sold in the market for £749 while the 15-inches will have a price of £849.
Last year, experts anticipated the new Macbook Air to feature a retina display. But if the new price list is true, then we may not see this feature during the launch. The same holds true for the foreseen TouchID unique finger impression. Reports say the TouchID will be patched under Magic Mouse and the Magic Trackpad. Apple did document the patent for Magic Mouse with Force Touch tech, so the possibility of the feature making its way to the new Macbook Air is not completely impossible.
The new Macbook Air may bring with it a stylus and a touchscreen display. You may as well say goodbye to the standard USB port as Apple favors USB-C, the latest standard that does not support USB-A cables and sticks. USB-C port is smaller and more rounded than the traditional one.
