New MacBook Air possible as early as next week
Last March, MacRumors received an anonymous suggestion stating that Apple would announce new iPad, iMac and iPod models with three consecutive days of press releases the following week and that the information proved to be two-thirds accurate with the new iPad Air models. and iPad mini announced on Monday March 18th and an iMac update on Tuesday March 19th.
Apple announced a new product on Wednesday, but they were new AirPods, not a new iPod. Given that both products have “Pods” in their name, perhaps there was some confusion there, but it’s clear that the tipster was relatively knowledgeable.
Now, the same anonymous tipster has informed MacRumors that Apple plans to announce new MacBook Air models next week. We have yet to confirm this information, but since the tipster now has a consolidated track record, we have chosen to share this entry. The tipster has not provided any further details at this time.
A few days ago, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple plans to launch updated MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models with scissor-type keyboards in the second quarter of 2020, following in the footsteps of the 16-inch MacBook Pro. While the second quarter doesn’t start until April, an announcement next week would be only a few weeks earlier. Apple announced new or updated products in March for the past five consecutive years, so precedence exists. In terms of coverage of all bases, however, we cannot rule out the possibility that the tipster received incorrect information.
The current MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro still have butterfly keyboards that can suffer from problems
