Forget waiting until the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. The next-generation MacBook Air could launch as early as next week, according to MacGeneration. The French site says the new models will include speed upgrades and new storage options. The current MacBook Air launched in June 2013 at WWDC and comes in two sizes: 11-inch and 13-inch. Each model features a 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor and are available with 128GB or 256GB in flash memory. Recent rumors have suggested that Apple is working on a 12-inch MacBook Air with Retina display. This model is not expected to launch next week. The MacBook Air is one of six Apple products we recently said were itching for an update. The others are the Apple TV, Mac mini, iPod nano, iPod classic, and Apple displays. This year's WWDC kicks off on Monday, June 2 in San Francisco, Calif. In addition to the unveiling of new Macs, Apple could use the event to unveil iOS 8 and a successor to OS X Mavericks.
