Taiwanese website DigiTimes is reporting that Apple has plans to refresh its MacBook Air with USB-C ports. However, the report does not give a timeframe in which Apple will launch the new machine.
Currently, Apple has decided to adopt the USB Type-C interface for its MacBook Air, while Asustek Computer and Hewlett-Packard (HP) are upgrading one of their notebooks’ regular USB port to the Type-C. Lenovo, Acer and Dell are still evaluating the option.
Previously DigiTimes reported that Apple will be unveiling new “ultra-thin” 13 and 15-inch MacBooks at the end of the second quarter, which ended in late June.
The report stated that the new MacBooks would “share a design similar to the 12-inch MacBook” and be “thinner than [the] MacBook Air.”
DigiTimes has a rather spotty track record to say the least. Though, aside from the 2016 12-inch MacBook, Apple’s Mac lineup has yet to see any updates. Especially Apple’s “Pro” Mac lineup (MacBook Pro and Mac Pro), which have yet to see notable updates in years.
