MacBook Air 2018 Coming On October 30? Delayed Apple Order Hints
One of the highly anticipated tech gadgets this year is the low-cost 13-inch MacBook Air 2018 which is presumably similar to the currently available MacBook Air (MBA). According to reports, it will come with thinner bezels, Touch ID and Retina display.
As we (73Buzz) mentioned in our previous articles, there have been conflicting theories made by other reports (some being vague about it) which made us unable to tell with full accuracy whether the said laptop will sit alongside the 12-inch MacBook and 13-inch MacBook Air, replace one of them, or replace both of them. In addition to that, there have also been a number of rumors regarding Apple’s 2018 MacBooks just this year alone. So it’s really hard to pin all of them down and differentiate each one.
So, what new information we have this around regarding the upcoming 13-inch MacBook Air 2018?
The Delayed Apple Order
According to a report, a K-12 education customer recently placed an order for a MacBook Air (the currently available model), iPad and Apple Pencil. What happened next was that the iPad and Apple Pencil were shipped, but the MBA was delayed and it will be shipped on October 30.
Note: The currently available model of the MacBook Air starts at $999. The MBA that the K-12 customer ordered was a 256GB model which costs $1199 (though schools pay less).
Speaking of October 30, the Cupertino-based tech company will be hosting its “There’s more in the making” event which will be held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Howard Gilman Opera House – 10:00 am EDT. And on the event, the low-cost 13-inch MacBook is expected to be launched. Aside from that, is the 2018 iPad Pro (aka iPad Pro 3).
