Report: Apple is Developing a New, Slim 12″ MacBook Air

New MacBook

A new forum post on Weiphone.com has revealed a number of details about Apple’s upcoming plans for its MacBook notebooks as well as some details about its iWatch initiative. The author of the post has posted legitimate leaks and photos of un-released MacBook hardware in the past, lending credibility to this new information. The poster writes about the upcoming MacBook Pro line as well as a new 12″ notebook that has previously been predicted, suggesting the future MacBook could be released without a fan assembly and with a redesigned trackpad. A MacRumors reader provides a summary translation of the post:

  1. MacBook Air updates are coming soon; MacBook Pro updates won’t occur until September.
  2. He discusses a new 12 inch notebook without fan assembly. It comes with a new trackpad design that doesn’t include the mechanical button, as we do on current MacBooks.
  3. An Apple watch device does exist but still in prototype stage, so its announcement won’t come anytime soon.
