There is no word on when Apple plans to come out with a MacBook Air with most of the things coming out right now nothing more than rumors. Tackled last July, the presumption is that the MacBook Air will be thinner and potentially handle 5K resolution.

With its sketchy update, a lot may fall on the MacBook Pro 201 which is expected to come out by the Fall. A lot of the features it may potentially carry are somehow similar to the speculations tied up to the MacBook Air though folks may not have to wait for the best to come.

As most know, the iPhone 7 came out recently and the latest Apple flagship may have something impressive that could link it to the MacBook Air. And that feature has to do with Apple’s A10 Fusion chip.

Faster processing on the iPhone 7?

Thanks to Daring Fireball, the iPhone 7’s performance was rendered on Geekbench and was pretty impressive. So impressive that it seems to have outdone Apple’s current products like the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

Obviously, the iPhone 7 and the MacBook Air/ MacBook Pro are entirely different commodities. There are other limitations outside the processing but the A10 chip performance does hint at something special – powerful processors possibly arming the MacBook Air or MacBook Pro.

It speaks well for Apple’s A-Series of ARM chipsets which should get longing MacBook Air or MacBook Pro fans something to look forward to. Not bad for the iPhone 7 which was being downplayed for offering minimal enhancements.

Regardless, it was always mentioned that while external features of the iPhone 7 would be scarce, the changes could come from within. Thanks to the tests, it now radiates at bigger things which may possibly start this Fall.

While the MacBook Pro 2016 is to be expected, there is no clear pathway for the MacBook Air. A coming in 2017 may be possible though Apple has yet to hint at one.
