Last year in March, it was expected that Apple will include Retina display in MacBook Air, but it didn’t. Instead, a brand-new MacBook line that has super-thin, super-light and high-resolution was introduced. This has left questions on our mind whether Apple will ever upgrade MacBook Air with retina display in the future.
Since Apple’s launch event is just two days away, there are no hints in the invites suggesting MacBook-related announcements. Macworld is of the opinion that Apple is trying to play down expectations on the Mac front.
Apple fans are expecting that the new MacBook Air 2015 would have Retina display during the launch at Apple’s Spring Forward event, which was held on Mar. 9 last year. It came as a surprise when it launched a Retina MacBook with a 12-inch display and USB-C port, thus introducing a new line of Apple’s MacBook laptop.
However, the Cupertino-based company did refresh the MacBook Air 2015 at the event last year. It had a new faster processor, faster flash storage and better graphics, but no retina display. Moreover, the screen and overall design also remained the same.
Rumors about MacBook Pro 2016 specs are making rounds on the internet for quite some time. The device is said to have Intel’s Skylake processor and the El Capitan operating system, notes Mobipicker. It is still not certain that MacBook Air 2016 would make its presence at the event.
According to MacWorld, Apple is planning to replace the MacBook Air with the new MacBook i.e. Retina Macbook. However, there’s still a possibility that MacBook Air 2016 could have an upgrade to the Retina display when it will be refreshed this year.
Apart from MacBook, the event on Mar. 21 will witness the launch of iPad Air 3, iPhone 5SE and Apple Watch.
