As it stands Apple has MacBook Air laptops that come in 11-inch or 13-inch sizes, both of which are extremely portable, but we guess for those who would prefer a happy middle, like a 12-inch MacBook Air, you might have heard the rumors that such a computer could be in the works. Well according to new reports, the laptops are expected to enter into mass production come Q1 2015.
Following a pilot production at the end of 2014, Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook Air is expected to enter mass production in the first quarter of 2015, according to sources from the upstream supply chain. And with the Apple Watch also beginning production at about the same time, Apple’s supply chain players have started accelerating their supplies of related components. Apple’s new MacBook Air features Intel’s Broadwell processors and a new chassis design to reduce the device’s overall thickness and weight, but the start of mass production has been hampered by low yield rates, the sources said. As the yield issue is gradually being resolved, mass production is expected to come in the first quarter of 2015, the sources explained.
