Apple may refresh MacBook Air in 2016

According to rumors, Apple’s Macbook Air laptop will probably get a refresh in 2016. The refreshed version of the MacBook Air will apparently feature a Retina display as well as Apple’s newest Force Touch trackpad.

The MacBook Air line of Apple laptops currently includes only two models --- an 11-inch MacBook Air, and 13-inch MacBook Air. Both the models were last upgraded by Apple in March this year; bringing to the laptops the latest-generation Intel processors, along with enhanced graphics and faster storage.

However, both the MacBook Air variants -- as also the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro model -- still feature non-Retina displays, even though all the other Apple laptops are now equipped with Retina displays.

With an update of the MacBook Air seemingly on the cards next year, it is being speculated that the laptop may also, finally, get the Retina display; and possibly even the new Intel Skylake processors and Force Touch Trackpad.

Moreover, it is also being speculated that the updated 2016 MacBook Air model will likely be slimmer than its current-generation counterpart; and may also be powered by Apple’s own A10X processors. It is also being rumored that Apple may discontinue the 11-inch MacBook Air, and introduce a new 15-inch MacBook Air model.
