Apple Delays New MacBook Air For MacBook Pro Overhaul – iTech Post
Members of the media look at a display of the new Mac Book Air during an Apple special event at the company’s headquarters on October 20, 2010 in Cupertino, California.
Apple has reportedly delayed the release of the new MacBook Air. A number of speculators are blaming the upcoming and overhauled MacBook Pro as the reason for the delay.
The MacBook Air gained a lot of followers due to its dependability and low price as opposed to the MacBook Pro, according to the Vine Report. However, there are rumors circulating around that Apple may have decided to get rid of the MacBook Air lines and focus instead on marketing the MacBook Pro.
Apple’s continued silence on any upcoming MacBook Air has only made the cancellation rumors louder. Some observers, however, claimed that the Cupertino-based company has merely delayed the release of the Air due to the reportedly overhauled MacBook Pro set to be release in the latter part of 2017. Still, there are rumors that Apple is still undecided in releasing a new MacBook Air that will probably have the same specs and features as the overhauled MacBook Pro.
Many of Apple’s product line are in dire need of an upgrade including the MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air. Last year’s MacBook Pro only had some minor updates which were not enough to impress its usual customer base. The continuing dismal sales reports have finally convinced Apple to do something about it. It seems the tech giant is streamlining its products.
There are rumors that the new MacBook Pro will have thinner look than its older counterpart, according to Fortune. It will also be equipped with latest and most powerful graphics in Apple’s arsenal. The graphic card,however, is rumored to be coming from AMD. The standard function keys will be removed and a touch screen placed on top of the keyboard will take its place. The upcoming Pro will also come out with the new USB-C ports.
Industry observers believed that a new overhauled MacBook Pro will possibly be released after the new iPhone 7 has been announced to the public.
