Hey everyone,

We received a tip from a website that said that the French manuals of the new MacBook Airs that were released this week contain references to a Thunderbolt 2 port. As it currently stands, the newer MacBook Airs do not have such a port, and I wanted to see if anyone who picked one up in the U.S. or other countries have the same reference in their booklet.

This obviously could be a typo, but if anyone else sees this in their manual and picked up their MacBook Air yesterday, let us know in the thread.

This manual contains no Thunderbolt 2 reference.

The manual has been updated. Earlier the manual on that link stated "Thunderbolt 2".

Additionally, the current copy was created on May 1 according to its metadata - a day after the file was originally posted online.

Manuals in other languages have yet to be updated.

My guess is Thunderbolt 2 inclusion was canned at the last minute and referenced in the manuals by mistake.

I can confirm it was there before, unfortunately I didn't save a copy of the file.

Just received my 2013 Macbook Air (refurb) and the quickstart guide shows Thunderbolt 2.

Lol this makes me a bit disappointed if this was indeed a last minute decision to ditch TB2 for the 2014 Airs. But probably because the i7 models didn't have new Intel processors, it was a safe move.
