The laptop also features Touch ID — a fingerprint sensor built right into the keyboard, which allows you to instantly unlock your MacBook Air, authenticate your identity, and make fast, simple and secure purchases using Apple Pay, as per the company. It also comes with the Apple T2 Security Chip, which features an SSD controller with on-the-fly data encryption for everything stored on the SSD.
The MacBook Air also features the third-generation Apple-designed keyboard. It also includes Force Touch trackpad, which delivers pressure-sensing capabilities and haptic feedback, and is 20 per cent larger than on the previous generation MacBook Ai.
Starting at $1,199, the new MacBook Air comes in three colour variants — Gold, Space Gray and Silver.
The MacBook Air now comes with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which allow you to charge your notebook, quickly transfer data via USB and Thunderbolt, output video in three formats and connect to a whole host of devices.
The laptop is claimed to deliver up to 12 hours of battery life during wireless web use and up to 13 hours of iTunes movie playback.
