Apple announces the new MacBook Air: more powerful and cheaper

Together with the new iPad Pro, Apple has also presented the new MacBook Air, with performance up to 2 times faster than the previous one, with a new keyboard and twice the storage space. 

Apple today updated the MacBook Air , the world’s most loved notebook with faster performance, with a keyboard, twice the storage space and with a new and cheaper price.

With the latest 10th generation Intel Core processors up to 1.2GHz quad-core Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz, MacBook Air offers up to two times faster performance than the previous generation. And with Intel Iris Plus graphics, MacBook Air now offers up to 80% faster graphics performance, so graphics-intensive tasks like playing and editing videos are faster than ever.

New magic keyboard

MacBook Air now features the new Magic keyboard, first introduced on the 16-inch MacBook Pro. A redesigned scissor mechanism offers 1mm of key travel for a comfortable and stable feel of the keys, while the new inverted “T” arrangement for the arrow keys makes them easier to find without taking your eyes off the monitor. MacBook Air features an extraordinary unibody wedge design made of 100% recycled aluminum and is available in three finishes: gold, silver and space gray. The 13-inch Retina display offers over 4 million pixels and millions of colors, so if customers read an email, enjoy a movie or edit their photos, the text is crystal clear and the images are more real.

Double the storage space

MacBook Air now starts with 256 GB of storage space, double that of the previous generation, so users can store even more movies, photos and files. And for those who need even more storage capacity, MacBook Air offers up to 2 TB, double the previous maximum storage capacity.

Integrated security and privacy

MacBook Air comes with Apple T2 Security Chip, the second generation silicon designed by Apple, which verifies that the software loaded during the boot process has not been tampered with and provides data encryption on the fly for everything stored on the SSD. This allows MacBook Air and any Mac with T2 chip to offer the safest boot and storage process of any notebook. T2 also protects Touch ID information, so if customers are unlocking their Mac, entering a password online or making online purchases, their information remains secure.

Additional features

  • A three-microphone array for clearer voice capture for FaceTime calls with friends and family.
  • The industry’s best Force Touch trackpad for precise cursor control and multi-touch navigation.
  • Thunderbolt 3 ports for data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector.
  • Support for an external display up to 6 KB, a novelty for MacBook Air.
  • Advanced stereo speakers for enveloping, wide stereo sound for activities like watching Apple TV + content or playing with Apple Arcade.
