MacBook Air, MacBook Pro could get refreshed later this month

Apple is reportedly planning to update its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines later this month. Both lines will reportedly feature support for USB-C and Thunderbolt 3, while dropping the MagSafe power connector that's been prevalent on laptops since the first MacBook Pro.

From Mac Otakara:

According to information from a reliable Chinese supplier, Apple is planning to announce the new MacBook Air within this month, and to begin shipping out to retailers in August.

While these new laptops might indeed be announced this month, it seems unlikely that they'll be at WWDC 2016 next week, as that's slated to be a software-focused event.
