Rumor: Retina Display MacBook Air Coming in New Colors Next Year
Now that we officially know more about the iPhone 6, the iPhone 6 Plus and the Apple Watch, it’s only natural for the Apple rumor mill to shift gears and start predicting what’s next for other products.
To start, it looks like the MacBook Air laptop may be getting a big upgrade by mid-2015.
According to tech site Cult of Mac, which spotted the report first via A Tech Website, Apple will launch a 12-inch MacBook Air with retina display in three colors: slate gray, silver and gold. The move would be the first time MacBooks are available in colors other than aluminum gray.
Since Apple is giving customers more customization options with the Apple Watch, and options with size when it comes to the iPhones, the move wouldn’t come as a complete surprise. However, it’s important to take this rumor with a grain of salt; A Tech Website doesn’t have much of a track record for reliable leaks.
Right now, the MacBook Air is available in 11 inches for $899 and 13 inches for $999.
The news comes as the iPhone 6 Plus sold out online just hours after it was made available for preorder on Friday morning. Apple customers will have to wait up to four weeks for their orders to ship.
