13-inch MacBook Air gets 8GB RAM as standard

Apple upgraded it's new MacBook yesterday with faster Skylake processors, bigger battery, and a new rose gold color, but there's also something for those looking to buy the more versatile MacBook Air. The 13-inch model now comes with 8GB 1600MHz LPDDR3 memory as standard.

Back when the machine was updated in mid-2015, the 13-inch model always came with 4GB RAM as standard on all models, with 8GB being an option that you had to choose while purchasing from the Apple Store. Not only is 4GB too less now to be a worthwhile option, it could also not be upgraded in countries that don't have the Apple online store and of course it's not user upgradeable.

With this update, the 13-inch MacBook Air is finally in the year 2016. Unfortunately, the 11-inch model is still stuck with 4GB as standard.
