Apple just gave its entry-level MacBook Pro and MacBook Air some serious upgrades along with some welcoming price cuts, according to a press release on the company’s website.

Recently, Apple showed its MacBook Pro models some love in May, so it’s nice to see them giving their entry-level options some TLC, as well.

There’s a lot to unpack here, so here is everything you need to know about Apple’s latest updates to the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air

This whole announcement centers around a back-to-school theme. And with that theme in mind, Apple is offering college-students some exclusive discounts.

  • The new MacBook Air now adds True Tone to its Retina display
  • The MacBook Air price is being brought down to $1,099, college students pay $999 for it
  • The new entry-level MacBook pro is being updated to 13-inches, features the latest 8th-generation quad-core processors, and comes equipped with Apple’s Touch Bar and Touch ID
  • The new MacBook Pro will cost $1,299, college students get it for $1,199

If you’re looking to pull the trigger on any of these in the near future, both models of the new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are available from Apple.com or in stores today.
