Last year, Apple finally refreshed its MacBook Air lineup after months of leaks and rumors. The new MacBook Air gets a significant upgrade over its predecessors with modern hardware and improved design. One of the biggest changes coming to the new MacBook Air is a Retina display. In reality, this is something we have been demanding for years. The adoption of Retina display puts the Air in line with its Pro siblings on the market. Indeed, the MacBook Air sports a 13.3-inch Retina display, allowing for a higher pixel density and brighter details.
The new MacBook Air also comes with Touch ID for faster unlocking and a Force Touch trackpad. Under the hood, the new laptop is powered by a faster processor, allowing for a much-improved performance. Plus, the new laptop has the latest-gen butterfly keyboard and a couple of USB-C ports. The release of the new Air mainly targets people who are in the market for a thin, slim, and powerful laptop. However, it has its own problems that may ruin your experience.
There have been reports of a logic board problem that might cause power issues on the latest MacBook Air. Apple acknowledged the issue and finally addressed them. Indeed, the Cupertino firm is now launching a free repair for a small number of 2018 MacBook Air models that are affected by the power issues. Apple says that users can bring their affected laptops to the local Apple Store and get a fix for free.
This is not the first time Apple is launching a repair program for its Mac computers. Last month, the Cupertino firm launched a repair program for MacBook models with butterfly keyboard issues. Apple says that the free program will last up to 4 years from your original purchase date. Apple claims that the company will be emailing impacted customers to let them know about the free repair program. However, Apple did not specify which model is now suffering from the problem.
