  • Apple event live: New iPad Pro, MacBook Air and Mac Mini expected to be launched - latest news

The latest Apple event is ongoing, and this time around the company is announcing the newest Mac products. Apple's second fall event is on its way.

The new Mac mini is geared toward professional users and costs US$799, up from US$499 of the previous model.

"All Mac portables with the Apple T2 Security Chip feature a hardware disconnect that ensures that the microphone is disabled whenever the lid is closed", said Apple in a white paper that detailed T2's security features.

The MacBook Air is a bit of an antique.

The new MacBook Air comes in Gold, Space Grey and Silver colour options.

For the most part, the MacBook Air 2018 is a better device than its three-year-old predecessor. As far as output video is concerned, there are three new formats. And that begins with the new Retina display. Improved the display with 4 million pixels.

That means there's no separate display for Touch ID right beside the fingerprint scanner slash power button, but it otherwise it works just as you'd expect.

Of course, the MacBook Air 2018 is going to be the winning machine when it features a higher-resolution display, narrower screen bezels and newer processors.

If City can finish top of the table again, we will become the first side in a decade to win back-to-back Premier League titles. Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola , has said there is a five-horse race for the Premier League title this season.

The new MacBook Air comes with Touch ID so users can instantly access the thin and lightweight laptop.

The new MacBook Air is made with 100% recycled aluminum. It is still the butterfly design. The keyboard itself has been upgraded for a better and more reliable typing experience, and the new Force Touchpad below this is 20 percent larger.

The new MacBook Air is 25% louder and two times more bass.

In addition to this, the company has also improved the audio performance of the device along with Hey Siri support. SD card is gone, much to my chagrin, but the 3.5mm headphone jack remains, and there are two USB-C / TB-3 ports on the left side. For less money, you could opt for the fantastic Surface Laptop 2, which comes equipped with a more powerful 8th-generation Intel Core i5 and premium finish for a lot less. It now supports up to 16GB of RAM that's also the faster kind clocking at 2133MHz.

The no. 1 feature customers asked for in a MacBook Air and have received in this version is a retina display, Lagrove said. Talking about the battery, Apple claims that the device will come with a similar 12-hour battery life. Both machines have 12 hours of battery life for web browsing, but the new notebook can get up to 13 hours of battery life for iTunes and playback.

The new computer has up to 64GB of Ram and up to 2 terabytes of storage. More so, Apple announced that all MacBook Air laptops are built from 100 per cent recycled aluminium, making it the greenest MacBook ever.

In terms of availability, we are not sure about the exact release date in Malaysia but at the time that this article is published, the shipping date for MacBook Air is now stated on Apple Malaysia website as between 3 to 17 December.
