T2 also features an always-on processor that enables "Hey Siri", which lets you make requests to Siri with just your voice for things like finding files or opening an app. To be more specific about the display, it runs at a 2560×1600 resolution, a huge step up from the previously used sub-1080p displays.
Considering this success story, its weird that Apple has neglected the MacBook Air for so many years. The MacBook Air will be available from November 7.

It has been four long years since Apple last updated the MacBook Air or Mac Mini. Look a little deeper, however, and you'll spot that this time it comes with two Thunderbolt 3 USB Type-C ports, a headphone jack and Apple's signature Retina Display - something past MacBook Air's were sorely missing.
Finally, the new Air comes in three familiar colors: space gray, gold, and silver. The trackpad is also 20% larger than previous version, and Apple says the speakers are 25% louder. The new Air's touchpad, as you may have already guessed, is massive and now features Force Touch, similar to the trackpads included in all of Apple's modern laptops.

Apple has introduced a new MacBook Air with a 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID, the latest processors and a more portable design. That "Retina" display should be a massive leap from the 1440x900 display of the past MacBook Air, which was simply outdated for a $1,000 laptop in 2018. A MacBook Air appears on the screen, and it's apparent that this is the first of Apple's updates today.
Overall, the 2018 MacBook Air brings a solid update to the company's best-selling notebook, albeit with a slightly higher price tag. This is a major upgrade, cutting down on time spent fiddling around on the old third-gen keyboard that the laptop is carrying over from previous MacBook Airs.
The system comes with a 13-hour iTunes movie playback capable battery. Even so, the FaceTime camera remains on the front, at the top of the screen. It's got 17% less volume than the previous one, is 10% thinner at 15.6mm and Apple says it's kept the weight down to 1.2kg. Storage-wise, it supports up to 1.5TB SSD that is 60 percent faster than the predecessor.
The MacBook Air will cost $1,199 to start. Well, if you're planning on upgrading your tablet, I've got bad news for you: You'll need to buy a new Apple Pencil.
