Apple held its 2022 “Peek Performance” Event. yesterday when the tech giant introduced lots of amazing new products, such as the 2022 iPhone SE 5G, which uses the iPhone 13 chip, Apple Bionic A15. However, following the presentation of the debut of the Mac Studio, noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed some insight on the MacBook Air, another Mac product that we’re expecting to see revised later in the year.
According to Kuo, the 2022 MacBook Air will feature an all-new form factor design and additional colour possibilities. Previous speculations have stated the next MacBook Air would not feature a tapered design, with Apple instead selecting a more MacBook Pro-style aesthetic.
It is projected to be smaller and lighter, and it might come in colour choices comparable to the 24-inch iMac’s colour options, such as blue, green, pink, silver, yellow, orange, and purple. It is also believed to sport off-white bezels and a matching off-white keyboard rather than black.
Apple MacBook Air to Feature M1 Chip
Kuo thinks the MacBook Air will contain an M1 processor, which is not in line with any of the reports that we’ve heard about the laptop so far.
Everything we’ve heard before regarding the Apple MacBook Air implies that the computer would employ an upgraded M2 processor with an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU, and there have even been traces of such a chip in macOS Monterey. It is not clear whether this is an error on Kuo’s side, or if he is anticipating Apple to remain with an older processor for the refurbished laptop.
As predicted, the MacBook Air will not contain a mini-LED display, with Apple keeping that technology for its higher-end MacBook Pro models.
Kuo thinks that we may anticipate mass production to commence on the MacBook Air late in the second quarter of 2022 or in the third quarter of the year.
