| Product News

Apple introduced updated MacBook Air models on Monday during its World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco. The new ultra-light models sport what Apple called "all day battery life" and also run Intel's Haswell UTC processors.

The new 13-inch MacBook Air offers up to 12 hours battery life and over a moth of standby time, and while it doesn't gain a high resolution Retina Display, it does include 802.11ac wireless networking -- a first for Apple's product lineup. The new Wi-Fi spec means the MacBook Air can transfer data faster and network connections are more robust.

Like the previous model, the new Air includes Thunderbolt and USB connectors, a built-in camera and microphone, built-in speakers, Bluetooth, and more.

The updated MacBook Air is available now and is priced at US$999 for the 11-inch model, and the 13-inch model is $100 less at $1,099.

Apple's WWDC 2013 keynote is still underway, so be sure to check in with TMO for updated information and new announcements.
