In 2015, the existing MacBook Air models that were launched. They have come with fifth-generation, Core i7 processor, and dual-core Intel Core i5. We can easily assume that the Apple is not waiting for Intel’s Cannon Lake chips. They may debut the Intel’s Cannon Lake chips in late 2019 with a 10 nm design and opting for the traditional 14nm chips.
The Economic Daily News reports,
The Apple’s new MacBook Air models will include the Kaby Lake Refresh processors which were released in the second half of last year, these eighth-generation chips come in quad-core Core i5 and Core i7 variants that are clocked between 1.6GHz and 1.9GHz with Turbo Boost speeds between 3.4GHz and 4.2GHz. ‘This is significantly higher than the fifth-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors that are powering the current MacBook Air models with dual-core processing’, according to their report.
The Apple expected to launch the new MacBook Air lineup at WWDC 2018 this year. But for some delayed upgrade they bringing the new experience in the second half of the year.
Now, it is totally uncleared to us that when the Kaby Lake Refresh-powered MacBook Air lineup will launch, the company say nothing about it. But if we believe the latest report, it will launch in later this year. According to a report, it is expected, Apple will launch the new MacBook Air models with a starting price of $899, which is roughly Rs. 61,700 or even as low as $799 which is roughly Rs. 54,800.
In August, last year the Kaby Lake Refresh chips were launched. The Intel is planning for that they launch its faster Whiskey Lake processors in the second half of this year to upgrade the experience on desktops and notebooks, it is also heard from some report that, Apple is not favoring the next Intel chips for its next-gen MacBook Air models. The reason for it may be the Apple wants to maintain the prices of the new models that will be cheaper than the standard MacBook family that received the new MacBook Pro models recently.
