Apple updates MacBook Pro, whilst quietly killing off the 12″ MacBook Air

Apple has just updated the MacBook Pro range, bringing Touch Bar, Touch ID, T2 and True Tone to all models, along with faster processors.

Apple have update the MacBook Pro range to now include a Retina TrueTone display and TouchBar across all models.

Starting from A$1,299 for the 13″ model and A$2,399 for the 15″, the laptops will also include Apple’s TouchID sensor as well as its T2 security chip.

Spec wise lower end machines such as the base 13″ model received minor bumps in SSD storage and RAM but largely remain unchanged.

In addition to bringing the MacBook Pro range into line Apple have also discontinued what was their smallest laptop, the 12″ MacBook Air.

The 12″ Air hasn’t been updated since 2017 and those wanting the smallest of form factors will have to settle for Apple’s 13″ version, which now also comes equipped with a Retina True Tone display.

Now also slightly cheaper the 13″ MacBook Air will be sold at the 12’s former price point of A$1,099 (US$999).
