Apple will release a new MacBook design later this year, according to a Bloomberg report. And Apple may make the announcement at its big event scheduled for October 30.
What Apple will call this new laptop is still a mystery. Bloomberg says it could be called the MacBook Air or simply the new MacBook, but considering how this notebook will reportedly replace the MacBook Air in Apple's lineup, we'll refer to this new computer as the new MacBook Air for now.
The current MacBook Air has gotten plenty of internal upgrades over the years, but consumers have been looking at the same form factor since 2011. Still, at $999, it's currently the most affordable Mac laptop you can buy.
But all of that could change very soon.
Here's what we're expecting from the new MacBook Air that will reportedly be announced this month:
Expect a 13-inch display, like the current MacBook Air.
Apple retired the 11-inch MacBook Air in 2016.
The new MacBook Air will reportedly include a higher-resolution Retina display. The MacBook Air is currently the only Apple-made laptop without a Retina display.
The Bloomberg report says the new MacBook Air will have thinner bezels, or borders around the display. You could probably expect something similar to the Huawei MateBook X Pro, another laptop with razor-thin bezels.
