In May 2019, the higher-end 13-inch model was refreshed by Apple, while the entry-level models were refreshed in July 2019, making them comparable to the more expensive choices. The updated features include new quad-core processors, an improved butterfly keyboard, True Tone support, T2 security chip, Touch ID, and Touch Bar.
