Probably the most headline-grabbing feature of the refreshed MacBook Air 13" is the use of a True Tone feature on its Retina display. With the feature now in tow, a more comfortable viewing experience is to be expected as the technology automatically adjusts the screen's color temperature. Apart from that, the 13-inch device's full specifications remain similar.
The new MacBook Air is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor with a Turbo feature. The device also features 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory and 128GB/256GB SSD storage options. For its graphics needs, the refresh relies on Intel UHD Graphics 617.
Other notable features of the new MacBook Air include Touch ID, a Force Touch trackpad, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
