The rumor: Apple may be updating the new MacBook Air with fresh colors, according to Jon Prosser (77.6% accurate).
- Prosser’s source, who hasn’t been wrong yet, claims to have seen a blue MacBook Air prototype recently…sparking parallels to the revamped colors on the new iMac
- Apple could be updating the MacBook Air with a thinner and lighter design as soon as sometime later this year
Our take: This is wonderful news and it lines up with a more general strategy that I see Apple deploying with fun colors for their lower-end products and serious shades for their higher-end offerings. People love colors and most people aren’t buying Pro Apple products.
