First look at next MacBook Air shows new design, colors & more

The leak: Apple’s next MacBook Air will feature an all-new design and more, according to Jon Prosser (77.6% accurate).

  • The new design is not tapered, but rather completely flat and nearly as thin as the USB-C port on the side
  • Prosser mentions that the exact sizing of the display is a guess, but the bezels on this prototype are white
  • An updated keyboard features full-size function row keys and the same Touch ID sensor as the new iMac keyboards
  • The rubber feet on the bottom of the MacBook Air have been swapped for two long rubber bars

Our take: I think this design looks phenomenal, and it seriously seems like this is as thin as they can go. We’ve seen a lot of Apple’s new base silicon designs, but I’m still most excited to see the next M-series of Pro models…
