Features and new design

The new MacBook Air M2 presents the most significant change to the design of the MacBook Air line in the last 10 years, with a uniformly flat chassis, larger display and - finally - thinner screen frames.
Like MacBook Pro From 14” and 16” in 2021, the front camera is now housed inside an - iconic but vomiting - notch on the display.
The Apple Silicon M2 chip improves CPU and GPU performance, making the new MacBook Air M2 about 20% more performing than the already fast MacBook Air M1.

The redesigned chassis, of course, is inspired by the design of the MacBook Pro 2021, with a square appearance with rounded edges, leaving behind the classic cone design of MacBook Air and measuring just 11.3 millimeters.

The New MacBook Air is available in a choice of four finishes:

  • Silver
  • Space Grey
  • Galaxy
  • Mezzanotte

Magsafe and USB-C charging

After years of absence, finally, MagSafe is back as a charging option default and every MacBook Air M2 is equipped with a MagSafe 3 cable matching the chassis finish.

Can you charge the Macbook Air M2 with a USB-C cable?

Yes, you can still recharge the MacBook Air M2 via the USB-C ports if you prefer it over charging with Magsafe.

Speaking of charging options, Apple also sells new adapters from dual-port USB-C power supply.
