Apple Rumoured to Update Non-Retina MacBook Air in Late February
It looks like the February 24, 2015, product launch rumours just won’t die: citing sources from the reseller network, Czech website Letem Svetem Applem reports that Apple will refresh the non-Retina MacBook Air on that day.
Don’t expect an Apple keynote, as rumoured earlier, though. This product refresh will be pushed out quietly, says the Czech Apple blog. Apparently, the sources contradict earlier rumours of a 12-inch MacBook Air launch for that day, the birthday of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.
What seems to be plausible is this minor update, the sources say: we will likely see a light processor upgrade while Apple keeps the 11-inch and 13-inch designs unchanged. According to the Czech blog, Apple will likely opt for 2.2 GHz Core i7-5650U, 1.8 GHz Core i5 chip 5250U, and 2 GHz Core i7 processors.
Rumours of a 12-inch Retina MacBook Air have been around for a while now. The device is reportedly on track for launch in the second quarter of 2015, possibly alongside the Apple Watch, which is scheduled to ship in April.
