BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Black Friday may be over, but that doesn’t mean you managed to grab everything you wanted or needed. If you’re in the market for a laptop, you might want to wait until next year, for Apple to release new Macbook Air in summer of 2016.
Apple is a strange company. They continue to release the most expensive products on the market, but still manage to gain huge public favor. Whether the reason is their products’ undoubtedly high quality, or just the brand’s name, is still a mystery to some.
Coincidentally, so is the release date of their newly announced Macbook Air. The corporate giant announced that the product would come out next year, but they kind of just stopped there. No actual release date or specs have been revealed, but, as they are known to do, people are speculating.
Most of the rumors regarding the highly anticipated product seem to point to a release date around June 2016. But, as others rumors seem to claim, it could be in the spring.
Apple fans are waiting on the edges of their seats to see what 2016 will bring to their favorite laptop model. The Macbook Air is seen as one of the most reliable pieces of technology out there, users in ownership of the laptop having to take their product into service during the first three years in only 7% of the cases.
One of the most exciting things about the new model is the fact that the Macbook Air did not suffer any design changes since its initial launch 8 years ago. Fans are expecting the new model to come out with a completely new design.
It’s very likely that the new model will have a 13 or 15 inch display, and that the old, 11 inch models will be discontinued. Not only that, but Apple will probably switch to a Retina display, already standard in most Apple devices.
It is also very likely that Apple will be adding their Touch ID and Force Touch technologies to the new model, both as security features and fun gimmicks.
Also very likely, if not quite confirmed yet, is the fact that the company will be providing its new laptops with the latest Intel Skylake processors, a new type of batteries, a number of USB Type-C ports, and cooling modules.
We’ll just have to wait until Apple deems to tell its fans more about this new product, but until then you can rest assured that if you already own a Macbook Air, it shouldn’t really encounter any issues until the new one is launched.
