According to a Bloomberg report, Apple has been working on several new Macs. Specifically, Apple might plan to release a new entry-level laptop to replace the aging MacBook Air.
This is not the first rumor about a MacBook Air Refresh. While Apple has released a 12-inch Retina MacBook, it's nowhere near as cheap as the MacBook Air. It's also not that versatile, since it only has a single USB Type-C port.
And yet, the MacBook Air is probably the most popular laptop design from Apple in recent years. Many MacBook Air users still use their trusted device because there is currently no clear replacement in the lineup. According to Bloomberg, the updated MacBook Air could get a retina display. Further details are still unclear.
After Apple updated the MacBook Air in March 201
It does not sound like the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro (without a Touch Bar), nor the 12-inch MacBook have aroused so much customer interest as the MacBook Air.
Bloomberg also says that the Mac Mini an update is received. The history of the Mac Mini is quite similar, as the product has been neglected for years. Apple last updated the Mac Mini in October 2014 – it's been almost four years.
And the fact that Apple is still selling the Mac Mini from 2014 onwards is embarrassing. You can find tiny desktop PCs that are cheaper, smaller, and more powerful. They do not run macOS, but that's the only downside.
It is clear that laptops have taken over the computer market. Desktop computers have become a niche market. Therefore, the updated Mac Mini could focus on people who are looking for a home server and do not want to mess with a Raspberry Pi.
