Apple may be announcing new MacBook Air models as soon as next week, says an anonymous tipster to MacRumors. No further details were provided, but the source of the leaked information allegedly has proven reliable in the past.

The 2020 MacBook Air is expected to debut with a revamped scissor keyboard similar to the new Magic Keyboard on the 16-inch Macbook Pro. All current MacBook air models have Apple’s butterfly keyboard that can malfunction after prolonged use.

The problem was so severe that Apple instituted a free repair program in 2018 and expanded it in 2019 to include all butterfly keyboards even those on its 2019 models.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently predicted that Apple would launch an updated MacBook Air in the second quarter of 2020 alongside other products.

Apple also was expected to debut the iPhone SE2/9, AirTags, and refreshed iPad Pro and MacBook Pro models.

These products were assumed to be announced during a March press event, but Apple reportedly canceled those plans because of the coronavirus. Now, Apple may unveil its new product lineups via a series of carefully timed press releases, possibly starting next week with the MacBook Air.
