Apple is expected to deliver new MacBook Airs this month, but they won’t be the all-new models we’ve all been waiting for. Instead, they’ll likely be refreshed versions of the existing lineup with some welcome improvements, such as Intel’s latest Core processors.

Sketchy Rumor: Apple to unveil 12-inch Retina MacBook Air at October 16 event, future products to have 3D logos
With just one day until Apple’s second media event in as many months, a new report from Taiwan-based DigiTimes claims that the Cupertino-based company will announce a new MacBook Air with a 12-inch Retina display at its October 16 keynote tomorrow afternoon. The report adds that Apple will begin using 3D-like logos on its future products.
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has issued a new research note in which he predicts that Apple will unveil both the iPad Air 2 and iMac with Retina display at its October 16 event tomorrow. iPad Air 2 supplies could be limited, however, while the first Retina-equipped iMacs will only be available in 27-inch models that ship by the end of this year.
While Apple’s big September event has come and gone, and with it we saw the unveiling of the iPhone 6 lineup, Apple Pay and Apple Watch, there’s another event often rumored to be right around the corner.
According to DigiTimes, citing Taiwan-based supply chain sources, Apple will launch a thinner MacBook by late 2014 or early 2015. The report claims that Apple manufacturing partners have began production of components for the next-generation MacBook in small volumes as the launch of the notebook approaches.
Following a reference to a mid-2014 model Mac mini that was recently uncovered on an Apple support page for Boot Camp, and later removed, it has now been reported that a mid-2014 model 27-inch iMac was also briefly listed on the same page. Apple has yet to release a new Mac mini or 27-inch iMac this year, hinting that updates could be on the horizon.
