Apple iPad Pro is rumored to be a hybrid device, combining the features of a laptop and a tablet into one, which is said to be in a head on competition with Microsoft Surface Pro 4 that is considered as a hybrid device as well.

MacBook Air 2016 was initially rumored to be released in the month of October; however, since Apple wants to market its tablet device with full force, releasing a laptop in the same year will only jeopardize its sales.

It is also rumored that the release date of MacBook Air 2016 is now pushed to March 2016. The previous model of MacBook was released in April this year, without making a lasting impression in its sales.

As for the specs, MacBook Air 2016 is expected to sport an 11-inch display and run on an Intel Sky Lake processor. It is also rumored to be equipped with an excellent battery life and feature the force touch technology.

It will also sport a much thinner design. It is also rumored to be equipped with a retina display screen and a USB Type C connector. Additionally, the device will also sport a 178 degree view which will enable the screen to put a richer output in front of the users.
