It seems that the Cupertino company would be thinking of renew MacBook Air processors, in the next update. Apple has not confirmed anything officially and as always we are facing a rumor, but it is evident that they have not been a major update in the MacBook Air for a long time.
Personally, I have been saying for a long time that the firm should directly eliminate the equipment and leave the 12-inch MacBook as an entry model with a lower price, but if they also now update the processors by the Kaby Lake as this rumor says Well, I doubt that their products will be discontinued.
Kaby Lake are not the latest Intel processors
These Intel processors are not the latest processors from the company and may not go any further in MacBook Airs. These Kaby Lake arrived at Apple and the MacBooks last year 2017 so they were already late too ... The important thing about the MacBook Air is that they be updated and do not touch the price of them, but this influences as I say that they are eliminated from their catalog and therefore you have to see how they will act with the new 12-inch MacBooks due out shortly.
The rumors about this renewal may or may not be real, what is clear is that Apple would carry out this renewal directly without presentation or anything like that, so if it were real we would see the update directly on the web. We will closely follow this possible renewal of the MacBook Air processors.
