The Internet is abuzz with speculation Apple has plans of launching a new MacBook Air model at the WWDC 2016 event. A new report, however, has indicated there’s no truth to this report.

There is a huge chance Apple is going to decide to discontinue its MacBook Air laptop series, said Latinos Post. Instead of developing a new MacBook Air 2016, Apple intends to focus on developing its MacBook Pro devices, instead. Consumers are way past MacBook Airs, believes Jan Dawson of Jackdaw Research.

"They kept the MacBook Air around just as they do with older iPhones," Dawson said, according to Gospel Herald. "But, the MacBook is now in the same position as the newest iPhone. That makes me wonder if the Air will go away over time."

Dawson's statements seemed to ring true this November when Apple failed to comply with its promise. Apple initially said the MacBook Air 2016 will be unveiled in November. No such launch occurred. Despite the online hype, the device failed to show up in any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deal.

Amidst reports Apple might stop making MacBook Air models are reports the company is going to give the device a much thinner body, according to Economic Daily News, an online publication from Taiwan. It’s assumed the device will finally be unveiled alongside the new MacBook Pro sometime in the third quarter of 2016.

Since the mysterious MacBook Air is reportedly going to be thinner, consumers are expecting it to much lighter, too, especially when compared to its predecessors. Laptop users will also have two screen size options to choose from: 13-inch and 15-inch.

Having a smaller body won’t be a problem for Apple. After all, it’s widely being reported the Cupertino-based tech company is working closely with its suppliers to develop new, small components that fit easily under the laptop's hood.
