MacBook Air in line for major upgrade, to be unveiled at WWDC 2016

Information circulating the Internet suggest that Apple is expected to discontinue the 11-inch MacBook Air in 2016. The Cupertino-based tech giant is expected to introduce a 15-inch MacBook Air. All the announcements are expected at WWDC 2016, which will take place in June. If such information is to be believed, Apple is also expected to improve the batteries, chassis and the cooling modules in the new MacBook Air laptops. Rumours also suggest an improved display panel for the MacBook Air lineup.

We have been hearing rumours of an improved display panel for the MacBook Air for quite some time now, but to no avail. Last year, Apple introduced the MacBook with a 12-inch Retina display and USB Type-C connectivity. One of the best features of the MacBook is the MagSafe charger, which connects magnetically and disconnects from the laptop if someone tugs it. The same is not the case with the USB-C charger on the MacBook. We hope the MagSafe charger remains on the device. 

Coming back to the 11-inch Air, the it is possible that Apple expects people that want a small device to turn to the recently-launched iPad Pro. Apple may be looking to streamline its product portfolio with the shuffle of the MacBook Air. All of Apple’s devices boast of great specifications apart from the display of the MacBook Air. So, the redesign, though not required in terms of the look and feel of the laptop, may be imminent.
