MacBook Air 2022 with Apple Silicon M2: Everything we know

In short

Let's go deeper

Let's face it, we're all eagerly waiting to see the new Macbook Air M2 models.

Expectations are skyrocketing because, almost certainly, the Next generation MacBook Air, expected in 2022, will have a significant change in design.

It will be the Greatest re-design of the MacBook Air since 2010 when Apple first released both 11-inch and 13-inch versions.

Let's expect a complete redesign along the lines of the 24" iMacs and let's analyze together all the rumors heard about the update so far.


Dite Goodbye to the characteristic tapered shape, that we have come to love, of the current MacBook Air.

The Air models, as you know, are thicker at the back and then taper to a thinner design at the front, but Apple will instead choose a shape more similar to the new 14" and 16" MacBook Pros to maintain continuity in design across the laptop line.

The long-awaited MacBook Air M2 will be thinner and lighter than the current model, with design elements from both the MacBook Pro and the 24-inch iMac.

It is said that the computer will, in fact, have thin ones white frames and a matching white keyboard, with the chassis available in different shades similar to those of the iMac.


In 2021, Apple introduced the long-awaited Mini-LED display with the MacBook Pro and, according to rumors, even the MacBook Air could use this type of display in the future.

We don't know if it will have a notch (🤢) like the current MacBook Pro, but if the edges of the display are thin enough, it could happen.

However, and thankfully I would say, since a notch would be more evident on a white frame, Apple may choose not to include it.


According to leaker Dylandkt, Apple may be planning to stop using the name 'Air' for its low-end computers, using a naming similar to that of the fantastic 12-inch MacBook that, to date, is no longer in production.


The MacBook Air keyboard should be similar to that of the MacBook Pro, without the Touch Bar and with function keys.

For the Pro models, Apple completely covered the entire keyboard in black. In the case of the new Air, in the face of a design that will make a 24" iMac stand out, it could perhaps use white rather than black.


Come on now is the right time to see one 1080p camera In MacBook Air, the current 720p version is indecent.


With the ever-increasing trend of miniaturization and hyperconnectivity, it's highly unlikely that the MacBook Air will include an SD card slot or HDMI port, keeping these features reserved for Pro models to further differentiate them.

Apple Silicon M2, let's expect it.

As is obvious to expect, the “M2" processor would be under development and It will almost certainly arrive on the new MacBook Air in 2022.

Obviously, the new Apple M2 won't be as powerful as the newly introduced high-end 'M1 Pro' and 'M1 Max' chips, used in MacBook Pro models, but it will be a more efficient version of the 'less powerful' M1.

In fact, the new M2 chip could have the same number of computing cores as the current M1 (eight), but it should offer greater speed.

It could also include improved graphics, with 9 or 10 GPU cores compared to the 7 or 8 GPU cores of the current MacBook Air M1.


Let's take a look at the renders.

At first glance I Do they know about toy computers, but let's wait to touch them first hand.

Release date of the new Macbook Air M2

Apple is expected to release the new MacBook Air with M2 chip in 2022, but a specific launch date has not been set:

  • According to Business Insider, mass production will start at the end of the second quarter or at the beginning of the third quarter, with a possible launch around September
  • According to Bloomberg, the new 'MacBook Air' will instead be released in autumn.

If Apple meets the 2020 and 2021 deadlines, definitely We will have the presentation of the MacBook Air M2 in October 2022, immediately after the launch event of the iPhone 14 in September.
