Apple is sending surveys to select owners of various model Macs, including the iMac, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and even the now-discontinued 12-inch MacBook. The Cupertino firm is asking them about their opinion on screen size, feature sets, and much more.
As reported by MacRumors, Apple routinely sends out surveys to customers and just last week surveyed current users of its iPad mini.
Apple announced the 12-inch MacBook in 2015 as a super-light and thin laptop aimed at customers needing an ultra-portable notebook. The 12-inch MacBook featured a fanless design, an Intel processor and was the first Mac to feature the butterfly keyboard. The laptop started at $1299.
The survey sent out to select customers of the 12-inch MacBook was rather generic. It consisted of simple questions asking customers for their opinion on the laptop’s size, features, and what they would change about it.
Apple discontinued the MacBook in 2019 after the company launched a redesigned MacBook Air with Retina Display. Given that Apple discontinued the MacBook, it is unlikely to be brought back, unless it is in a revamped version.
The survey indicates that Apple is feeling out customers to determine if a market still exists for a Mac laptop that is ultra-thin and extremely portable.
Apple’s surveys to other Mac owners reportedly include similar questions, as MacBook Pro owners are being quizzed about ports, screen size, and other features of the laptop.
