Each year, Apple brings together developers, engineers, enthusiasts and more to showcase its latest advancements in software and hardware at Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Heading into this yearâ€™s presentation, two key projects have been rumored as the centerpieces. First, fans are hoping for the reveal of the long-awaited AR/VR headset. In addition to this, rumors of a 15-inch MacBook Air popped up following last yearâ€™s WWDC and have left many in anticipation. Now, the tech giant has officially revealed the new laptop.
The largest consumer-oriented laptop from the brand, the 15-inch MacBook Air arrives as the thinnest of its kind â€” weighing in at 3.3 lbs and measuring 11.5mm thick. Its 15.3-inch Liquid Retina display comes with up to 18 hours of battery life, a billion colors and appears in four different colors â€” silver, midnight, starlight and black. Looking within its build, an M2 Chip powers the system, allowing it to process up to twelve times faster than the fastest Intel-based MacBook Air. Additional specifications include a 1080p camera, a six-speaker sound system and fanless build.
Starting at $1,299 USD, this next chapter of MacBook Airs is available for pre-order today via Apple with shipments going out next week.
In other exciting tech news, Amazon is reportedly planning to offer its Prime subscribers free cell phone service.
