Macbook: Apple’s rumored about Macbook Air may be able to use the new USB Type C connector, MacRumors notes. The new Type C connector is reversible, which allows users to plug it in no matter which way it’s facing. The Macbook Air, which could have a 12-inch screen, is also rumored to use a different charging port that current generation Macbook Airs. Other rumors claim that the device will also be fanless and that it won’t launch until mid 2015.

Watch: The Apple Watch may have 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, reports AppleInsider. The new claims about Watch come from Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company in a letter sent to investors on Monday. In the letter, Arcuri claims that Apple will offer a 4GB and 8GB version of the Watch. He also believes that it could include a wireless combination chip similar to the one found in the iPhone 5s. However, this wouldn’t match up with what Apple has said about the phone, which means a different type of chip could be used.
