We’ve heard several rumors that Apple is working to build a brand new MacBook Air with a Retina Display that will likely bring the screen sharpness up to par with its MacBook Pro with Retina display products. That device may feature a new design with a thinner body and slimmer bezels, some reports have suggested, and if it employs Intel’s new Broadwell processors it’s also possible Apple will move towards a fanless body.
Sadly, we won’t see such a laptop this week, according to a new report Monday.
Re/Code said it has learned from sources that Apple has no intentions to discuss a new MacBook Air with Retina Display during its press conference on Thursday. The news outlet said Apple would instead focus on OS X Yosemite, new iMacs, which may include Retina Display technology, and its new line of iPads, including a likely iPad Air 2 and a new iPad mini. Back in March a report suggested that Apple was on schedule to release its new MacBook Air with Retina Display sometime this year, though perhaps that product will instead launch sometime in 2015.
Apple’s Oct. 16 event will likely be an exciting one, even without a new laptop on deck. We hope to learn about what its new iPad and iMac devices will offer and to also hear information on when OS X Yosemite will release to the public. TechnoBuffalo will be in attendance reporting all of the news as it breaks live.
