New leak says MacBook Air due biggest-ever upgrade in 2022
What you need to know
- Another report says Apple has big things planned for the 2022 MacBook Air.
- Mark Gurman says a big design change and an M2 chip are on the way.
- He also pointed to a new larger iMac, Mac mini, and more.
Bloomberg' Mark Gurman says that a new MacBook Air (2022) will feature the biggest design change since 2010 and a new M2 Apple silicon chip.
In his latest Power On newsletter Gurman says that Apple is done with events for 2021 following the iPhone 13 event in September and Monday's event, which saw the release of the new MacBook Pro (2021) and the M1 Pro and M1 Max Apple silicon chips, as well as AirPods 3.
Gurman says a new MacBook Air is coming in around six to eight months and will feature the M2 Apple silicon chip. This should be the next generation after the M1, rather than a beefier version of the current chip.
He also pointed to a new larger iMac, a new Mac mini, and even a new iPhone SE, as well as a new iPad Pro on the way next year.
A report this week claimed again that next year's MacBook Air would replace the MacBook Air with M1 with a new mini-LED display, and a 1080p webcam. From Friday:
Until then, Apple's new MacBook Pro (2021) is the best MacBook the company has to offer.
Powerful computing for all
The newest and best
The 14-inch MacBook Pro (2021) comes with an M1 Pro or M1 Max SoC that's fast, secure, and available with the most memory and storage options. Did we mention that incredible display and that it comes with MagSafe?!
