Especially, the original color display technology will automatically adjust the white dot value of the display screen according to the color temperature of the surrounding environment, making the web page and e-mail look as natural as printed matter.

Apple suspended 12-inch MacBook and the last MacBook Air

Although Apple has updated its retinal screen versions of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, Apple has officially removed 12-inch MacBook and its predecessor MacBook Air.

Its no surprise that the old MacBook Air went out of business because Apple has already cut the price of the retinal screen version of MacBook Air by $100, but the end of the 12-inch MacBook may disappoint some users, after all, its the lightest Mac computer.

However, when the 13-inch retinal screen version of MacBook Air was launched last autumn, the 12-inch MacBook did have some awkward positioning. After all, the former has lower prices, more ports, TouchID support, longer battery life and is only a little heavier than the two-pound MacBook. The 13-inch Air is slightly larger than the 12-inch MacBook, but the display is also larger.

Apple Reduces MacSSD Upgrade Price

In addition to updating MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, Apple has also cut the cost of upgrading its solid-state drives to Mac, with many upgrades falling to half the price.
