MacBook Air

Rumors out of Taiwan on Friday claim Apple’s anticipated 12-inch MacBook Air may be delayed into 2015 due to processor supply constraints, but release of the next-generation 11-inch and 13-inch models will be on time as partner suppliers in East Asia are receiving parts for mass production. In two separate reports, Taiwan’s Economic Daily News claims a rumored 12-inch MacBook Air may see its release date pushed back to late 2014 or early 2015, while parts for Apple’s refreshed 11- and 13-inch MacBook Air models are now being shipped to partner supplier Quanta ahead of production next month. Causing the reported delay for the 12-inch model is short supply of Intel’s latest 14-nanometer Broadwell chips, the publication said.
