  • Apple May Announce a Redesigned and Thinner MacBook Air at WWDC 2016

    Apple has long bragged of the thinness of its MacBook Air platform, which was made to be the ultra-portable computer that was able to fit inside of a manila envelope. But with the addition of the new MacBook in Apple's lineup, Apple is intending to make some big changes to the MacBook Air platform with a refreshed lineup, which Apple is reportedly readying to unveil at WWDC 2016.

    Among the changes, as first reported by Economic Daily News, is a thinner, redesigned computer with completely redesigned innards, which are likely to take some hints from the design of the new MacBook.

    Since the new MacBook, along with the iPad Pro, are Apple's new standards for ultra-portable computers and devices, it's very likely that Apple could drop the 11-inch MacBook Air. Apple's redesigned MacBook Air models will likely only apply to the 13-inch and 15-inch models, and will include a bump in hardware specs for improved performance as you would expect.

    Apple would then launch the computer some time in the third quarter of 2016, which would coincide with the WWDC 2016 date when the machine would be announced, which will reportedly be some time in July.

      I think there's a typo in the 3rd paragraph.
      Apple only has an 11 and 13 inch option for the MacBook Air, no 15.
