5 Enhanced Design and New Features
The Air also received many utility-oriented improvements to its somehow-even-slimmer design. The Butterfly keyboard got an upgrade that should make it more stable and durable. The speakers are 25% louder, and the trackpad is now 20% larger. Touch ID and Siri are now directly built into the laptop for easier use. There is no option for the Touch Bar. The combination of solid upgrades like Touch ID and the enhanced keyboard appear to put the 2018 MacBook Air above the 12″ MacBook.
