The MacBook Air 2022 is expected to include the most significant reimagining in years, as well as more power.
We think Apple’s next MacBook Air should be the MacBook Air 2022, but we may have to wait a little longer before it occurs.
However, despite the fact that the latest MacBook Air has a lot of power, its appearance is looking a little dated compared to laptops like Dell and Asus.
This year’s MacBook Air 2022 leaks suggest a slimmer form, an upgraded Apple M2 processor and new colour options. Read on to learn more about the MacBook Air 2022, which is expected to be released in 2022.
Speculation on the release date and pricing of the MacBook Air in 2022
It has been reported that the MacBook Air 2022 will be released in the fourth quarter of that year. However, that release date has since been moved out to the end of 2020 or beginning of 2020.
The global chip scarcity, which has made it difficult to obtain the necessary components for new products ranging from computers and gaming consoles to autos, might be the cause of this alleged delay.
In terms of cost, the MacBook Air now begins at $999. For the most part, we’d anticipate Apple to maintain with this price strategy in order to remain competitive with Windows computers.
Like many Apple products, extra RAM and storage are likely to increase the cost of the gadget.
Apple’s MacBook Air 2022 design
Because the expected next-generation MacBook Air 2022 is rumoured to receive a revamp, you should wait for that model instead of the MacBook Air with M1.
One of our top priorities for the upcoming MacBook Air is thinner bezels. A notch at the top of the display for a camera, as shown on the MacBook Pro 2021 and predicted in a render by Jon Prosser, might also be the case.
Newer renderings, which are said to have come from Apple’s design team, show the MacBook Air 2022 with no bezel at all. If you don’t like the notch, this could be excellent news. In other words, it’s possible that the next MacBook Air won’t gain as much from the ultra-thin bezels found on the current MacBook Pros. This doesn’t rule out any further bezel reduction, though.
A mini-LED display, like the iPad Pro 2021 and the new MacBook Pros, is expected to improve both brightness and colour accuracy on the screen. This is, however, disputed by Ming-Chi Kuo, who points out that the laptop may come in a new form factor that does not have mini-LED.
Apple is anticipated to offer a wider range of hues than only Space Gray and Silver in the future. Colors influenced by the iMac 2021’s pastel palette include off-white and a variety of variations on that colour scheme.
Upgrades to the keyboard and trackpad are still a mystery. However, the Force Touch trackpad is one of the best on the market, and typing on MacBooks has dramatically improved since Apple switched from the Butterfly keyboard mechanism to a scissor key mechanism.
This time around, we’ve got a fresh set of MacBook Air 2022 renderings to look at, based on the latest reports. You can see the new Alpine Green colour from the iPhone 13 on a beautiful entry-level MacBook with a variety of colour options.
And the source of these photographs, ZoneofTech(opens in a new tab), is confident in their accuracy: In terms of what the next MacBook Air will look like, “I’m fairly positive I have a near 100 percent accurate picture.”
MacBook Air 2022 with MagSafe and ports
MagSafe charging was seen by many longstanding MacBook users as a distinguishing feature, one that set Apple apart from other PC manufacturers. Sadly, MagSafe was axed by Apple due to fire safety concerns and the migration to USB Type-C.
Because it’s on the new MacBook Pros, we should expect MagSafe to be on the upcoming MacBook Air, too. So far, the speculations point to its return on the next-generation Air as well.
Some of these speculations may be confirmed if Ming-Chi Kuo’s forecast of an entirely new form factor comes to fruition. However, he did not comment on the design of the future laptop, leaving us with just guesswork.
Additionally, a detailed report indicates the MacBook Air may only have USB-C connectors, while the new MacBook Pros include both an SD card reader and an HDMI port. Because USB-C allows for increased connection, this wouldn’t be a big concern, but those who need additional ports may have to accept the dongle lifestyle altogether.
Specs for the 2022 MacBook Air
With its in-house created Apple M1 processor, the latest MacBook Air sparked a lot of attention. In spite of the fact that it uses ARM technology instead of Intel technology, it nevertheless managed to produce remarkable performance.
Apple’s M2 processor is expected to be used in the MacBook Air. Rumored to be built on a 4-nanometer technology node, the Apple M2 is supposed to be more efficient than its predecessors’ M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs.
A related rumour from The Information(opens in new tab) claims that Apple is working on a 3-nanometer CPU for the MacBook Air, which is codenamed Ibiza.
Ming-Chi Kuo, on the other hand, asserts that the laptop will include an original M1 chip. That’s odd, given that the M1 Macbook Air already exists.
With 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage, the new Air is expected to have the same amount of RAM and storage as the current model. While 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage aren’t exactly out of the question for the MacBook Air 2022, we wouldn’t rule it out either.
a peek forward to the MacBook Air in 2022
If you’re a fan of the MacBook Air, it’s time to upgrade. That’s also what the speculation about the MacBook Air 2022 suggests.
The new MacBook Air might be quite appealing if it has a sharper display with thin bezels, as well as an improved CPU and MagSafe charging. Even more so because it’s expected to be significantly less expensive than the new MacBook Pros.
