In July 2019, Apple updated the MacBook Air that was originally redesigned in October 2018. Even though there were no major updates to the MacBook Air, the enhancement led to a new butterfly keyboard which utilizes the same updated materials like the 2019 MacBook Pro, some small SSD changes, an improved display with True Tone, and a lower price tag. The MacBook Air has a T2 chip as well as fingerprint sensor for the Touch ID that can be used instead of entering password. This T2 chip is built for enhanced security on the MacBook Air by ensuring a secure boot process through Secure Enclave, and fast data encryption with an SSD controller.
