New MacBook Air’s T2 chip protects your mic from hackers

All-new MacBook Air takes flight

The old trackpad has been replaced with a new one with pressure sensitive and haptic feedback support. It has Apple's T2 security chip for enhanced security.

Two USB-C with Thunderbolt 3 ports are provided to enable connections to high-end peripherals like a 5K display. Every MacBook Air is now made from 100% recycled aluminum, reducing its carbon footprint by 50%. And as far as battery life is concerned, the new MacBook Air offers up to 12 hours of wireless web browsing.

The MacBook Air 2015 and its forbearers are practically timeless products.

As with the iPhone XR and XS models, the new iPad Pro will use facial-recognition technology to unlock the device and authorize app and Apple Pay purchases. On the top right side of that keyboard, you'll also find a Touch ID fingerprint reader.

The target audience may be a business person or executive who primarily need to access information, as opposed to create content, Ray Wang, principal analyst and founder of Constellation Research, told TechRepublic.

All new Macs come with macOS Mojave, the latest version of the world's most advanced desktop operating system, with new features inspired by pros but designed for everyone.

Cook talked about Steve Jobs pulling the MacBook Air out of that envelope years ago, talking about how it changed the industry across the board. The old 13-inch MacBook Air remains on sale as well, holding down the Mac notebook starting price at $999. Despite a narrow screen design it retains the front-facing HD camera. Intel's 1.6 GHz dual-core Core i5 and up to 1.5 TB of SSD storage makes this the fastest, most capacious MacBook Air to-date, and 8 GB or 16 GB of memory is healthy.

The new MacBook Air has a backlit keyboard with individual lighting behind each key, based on the third-generation Butterfly mechanism that's said to be 4 times more stable.

The new enclosure measures only 0.61 inches thick at its thickest point, making it 10% thinner than the previous MacBook Air. Weighing in at 2.75 pounds, it's also a quarter pound lighter.

Apple lifted the lid on a new MacBook Air model after years of fans crying out for an upgrade.

What is the battery size of the MacBook Air?

Here's how much it will cost in Australia and when you can get your hands on it. It starts at $1,849.

In terms of pricing, things start off with an 8GB RAM, 1.6GHz Core 15, 128GB for $1,199.

Last but not least, the MacBook Air 2018 now features dedicated speaker grills, like the MacBook Pro.
