Apple is still keeping their MacBook Air 2016 release date under wraps.

A lot of enthusiasts are wondering whether or not Apple will reveal the release date of their MacBook Air 2016 soon. After all, it seems that the current MacBook Pro and Air are already being sold at a huge discount. The 13-inch MacBook Air is now priced at $500 less and the MacBook Pro is selling at a 20% discounted price.

According to Yibada, the lowest price ever for the laptop is a MacBook Air deal from B&H, and it could be possible that the units sold will be upgraded to the latest macOS Sierra. The package consists of the laptop having a 1.6GHz Core i5 processing chip as well as 4 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD.

It is not exactly top-tier specs when compared to a common 2016 standard, but it is definitely a good deal due to the fact that the cash damage will only amount to $750 when complemented with three years' worth of Apple Care Protection.

With this, it is expected that potential buyers can  save at least $500 for this deal, but for those who really want to get the most out of it, they can always add $80 more to give more disk space for the laptop. Buyers willing to shell out more cash can bring home a laptop with a 256 GB SSD instead.

Also, to compensate for its specs, the deal offers extended battery life. The same report says that it is enough to ensure more productivity than what was originally intended for the device.


Meanwhile, Game N Guide reports that the MacBook Air 2016 is yet to be confirmed as sources reveal that the current focus of Apple is on the iPhone 7 and Apple Watch launch. The devices were announced at the Apple event earlier this month.

Regardless, avid technophiles are advised to stay tuned for more updates as it is not uncommon for Apple to suddenly just announce the release of their upcoming products without prior notice.
