Apple last week gave Retina MacBook Air an update, added True Tone and dropped the prize by $ 100. This week, new details have come to suggest that the new MacBook Air also has a slower SSD compared to the 2018 model. Testing shows that the 2019 MacBook Air can achieve reading speeds of 1.3 GB / s read and 1 GB / s of write performance. The equivalent 256GB SSD 2018 MacBook Air can read 2GB / s and around 0.9GB / s write speeds
