It was rumored that Apple would unveil refreshed lineups of both its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops at WWDC 2013. Those rumors partly turned out to be true, with Apple announcing the Haswell ULT based 2013 MacBook Air models. They were available for shipping from the date of the announcement. Since they have gone out, users have complained about a number of issues. Most recently, a number of users are complaining that the volume on their new MacBook Airs keeps fluctuating automatically.
Another issue plaguing these new laptops is related to Wi-Fi. Users complain that the machines repeatedly and unexpectedly disconnect themselves from Wi-Fi network. Apple is already looking in to that issue and is already testing a software fix. Now there are complains of volume fluctuating on its own while watching videos, the issue persits in a number of programs such as VLC, iTunes, Chrome and QuickTime. Some users say they only notice fluctuation when volume is in middle level, not when its in low or high levels. This is probably a bug in the software, one that should be fixed through a minor update. Have you noticed any such problems with your new MacBook Air?
