If the MacBook Air 2022 is revealed at the WWDC 2022 conference this afternoon, as reported, we can be expecting “the biggest revamp to the device in over a decade.”
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman (opens in new tab), who has written about the features being rumored for the new MacBook Air, Apple’s entry-level laptop. The writer claims that we’ll be seeing Apple unveil its MacBook Air, a new design that’s based on the flat-sided MacBook Pro (2021) and will be available in a range of colors that include silver, space gray, and gold like the present MacBook Air, but also a dark blue version.
The display on the Air will stay 13 inches but could be equipped with a notch that houses the webcam instead of a bulky top bezel. This is a feature taken from the MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro will feature only two USB-C ports available for connectivity and charging; however, charging will be handled via the MagSafe connector, just like MacBook Pro. MacBook Pro.
Apple’s MacBook Air could be tricky to find in less rosy news. Gurman has said he’s expecting “shortages or a non-immediate release date” for the laptop if it does get announced later in the day. The ongoing lockdowns in China have affected the Apple Mac availability for several months; however, Apple has been working to make up for the production gap.
Its MacBook Air seems to be the most likely option. However, we’re also curious whether Apple will unveil additional Macs powered by its next-generation Apple M2 processors, such as the brand new Mac mini or MacBook Pro 2022 and the two other Mac models that introduced us to the Apple M1 processor in 2020.
