According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on the new MacBook Air. Apple is expected to release the redesigned Air later this year, according to Gurman’s monthly PowerOn email. He has previously stated that an Air upgrade may arrive in the middle of 2022.
Even though Apple has not confirmed the existence of the next Air, experts and tech insiders believe it will be released in 2022. Apple had planned to unveil an all-new Air by the end of 2021 or early 2022, but it now appears that the release date has been pushed back to the second half of 2022.
MacBook Air May Release With iPhone 14
Apple’s marketing strategy is being called into doubt as a result of the delay. Apple’s annual developer conference is viewed as a great place to introduce new products like the MacBook Air and get developers enthused about them. If Apple aims to release a new MacBook Air by the end of 2022, it would most likely only be available in October or November.
On many levels, the introduction of a new MacBook Air is fantastic. Apple’s most popular Mac, which is intended for students and typical customers, is in desperate need of an update. The next MacBook Air, according to rumors, would feature a more consistent straight, flat-edged appearance. One of the most popular MacBook Air rumors concerns the design, particularly the colors.
According to reports, the new laptop will be available in a variety of colors, similar to the M1 iMac. There will also be a notch on the screen, according to rumors. In addition to a fresh look, the next MacBook Air will have a new M2 CPU and MagSafe technology.
The rumor that the ‘Air’ brand would be dropped in favor of the basic ‘MacBook’ name is possibly the most unexpected yet. That would make a lot of sense, as it would put the MacBook’s naming pattern in line with the iPhone and iPad.
Separately, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that the next MacBook Air will be released in the second or early third quarters of 2022, implying that it would be released at the same time as the iPhone 14.
