Apple MacBook Air 2022 Characteristics
Apple held its second product launch of the fall on October 18, unveiling two new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro. The two new notebooks use the M1 Pro and M1 Max, newly developed 5nm processors, and the SoC is not only a huge leap forward from last year’s M1 chips, but they also crush all mainstream CPUs and GPUs in the market. With the previous Apple A chip performance crushing Qualcomm, M chip to Intel is also a different track of the downfall of the blow.
Besides the MacBook Pro, according to MacRumors, for the new generation of MacBook Air 2022 that Apple may release next year, there are now the latest high-precision explosions.
- Abandoning the wedge design: according to the news, Apple will abandon the wedge design on the new generation MacBook Air and adopt a rounded and thin design with the same thickness in front and back of the notebook.
- Bangscreen: the new MacBook Air will have the same bangs screen as the recently released MacBook Pro, with no Face ID and a notch area that only houses the camera and ambient light sensor and an indicator light.
- MagSafe charging port: the MagSafe charging port has returned on Apple’s just-announced MacBook Pro, and Bloomberg’s Gurman claims MagSafe will also be used on MacBook Air.
- The M2 Chip: this week, Apple introduced the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips for the new MacBook Pro, but Apple won’t be using them in the entry-level MacBook Air 2022. Gurman says Apple may introduce the M2 chip, which has the same number of computing cores as the M1 chip, but runs faster and has more graphics power.
- Multiple colors: According to Jon Prosser, Apple’s upcoming MacBook Air will come in a variety of colors, similar to the colors of the current 24-inch iMac. Prosser also shared concept renders of the MacBook Air in several colors.
Apple MacBook Air currently on sale was released in November 2020, 334 days after its release date. The average time between MacBook Air updates over the past few years has been 398 days. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously predicted that Apple would release a new version of the MacBook Air around mid-2022.
