MacBook Air might be replaced for good with MacBook Pro 2016. Apple is no longer selling the non-Retina 13-inch MacBook Pro and KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted that both the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Air will stop receiving upgrades, because the company is focusing on the MacBook Pro line.
Unfortunately for the MacBook Air fans, the future of this line is uncertain, as lately, Apple was busy promoting the iPad Pro and didn’t have time to start producing the Macbook Air 2016 model. And according to Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, the iPad Pro 2-in-1 convertible was designed to replace the desktop, as well, since it can be easily transformed into a laptop by adding a Smart Keyboard.
However, not all tech websites believe that Apple will no longer release the Macbook Air 2016 and they are pretty sure that its specs will include a 5K display, an OLED touch display bar, a lightning port that will replace the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack and AMD Radeon RX 400 series video cards. These are only rumors that Apple hasn’t confirmed, but if the device will be released this year, it will come alongside the iPhone 7, in September.
As for the iPhone 7, the latest rumors suggest that Apple will remove the home button, but the screen will maintain its size – 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch (phablet version). Another change will be the removal of the headphone socket, the introduction of the upcoming A10 processor which will be much faster and the maximum support internal memory will have a capacity of 256GB. In a leaked image, on the back of the phone was noticed a protruding, pill-shaped enclosure for a possible dual camera that could allow users to take SLR quality photos and 3D images. The phone might be also waterproof, as Apple will use a “compound material” that will repel water.
Every techie needs a pair of sick headphones. Neurogadget recommends these Audio Technica Professional Studio Monitor Headphones for both their quality and their cool-factor.
