The new generation Macbook Air will go on sale not earlier than the second half of this year, according to sources familiar with the situation. Previously, the production of the Ultrabook was planned to start in the summer.
The delay is associated with a shortage of a number of key components, such as processors. It is not clear when Apple will introduce Macbook Air 2018: in the summer on WWDC or in the fall. In recent years, the company presents its novelties long before their release – so it was with Apple Watch and HomePod.
The notebook will retain the ultra-slim body and will receive a Retina display. The price starts at $ 799-899. Thus, it will be more affordable than a 12-inch Macbook, if Apple does not reconsider the positioning of its devices.
