Apple has released an updated MacBook Air featuring a True Tone display, now starting at $1,099, or $999 for qualifying students, – down from its original price of $1,299.
Alongside the enhanced MacBook Air, Apple has launched a new 13-inch entry-level MacBook Pro featuring 8th-generation Intel Core quad-core processors to offer up to two times faster performance, in addition to featuring Touch Bar and Touch ID and the Apple T2 security chip.
With the arrival of the new MacBook Air, Apple has discontinued its previous generation, alongside fully discontinuing the 12-inch MacBook, leaving the portable Mac range consisting of the 13.3-inch MacBook Air, a 13-inch MacBook Pro and a 15-inch MacBook Pro.
MacBook Air features a thin and light design in three beautiful finishes, the convenience and security of Touch ID, an 8th-generation dual-core processor, immersive wide stereo sound and all-day battery life. Its stunning 13-inch Retina display now features True Tone that automatically adjusts the color temperature of the display for a more comfortable viewing experience. MacBook Air is designed to power through daily tasks, from email and web surfing, to photo editing and FaceTime calls, and at an even lower price, it’s the do-it-all notebook for consumers and students alike.
The new machines are available to order now from Apple.com, with retail stores expected to begin stocking the models later this week.
