Apple announced the refreshed MacBook on Tuesday that includes a new sixth-generation Core M processor, longer battery life and even a new Rose Gold color option. But seemingly buried in the company’s release was a new update on the nearly forgotten MacBook Air, the remaining laptop in Apple’s family without a Retina display. No, it doesn’t have that yet, but Apple is now adding more RAM out of the box.
The company said all 13-inch MacBook Air models will ship with 8GB of RAM standard. That includes the entry-level $999 option that used to ship with 4GB of RAM, which means it has been effectively doubled for the same price. The 11-inch MacBook Air still starts at $899 and still offers just 4GB of RAM.
The updated models should be available from the Apple Store now.
