Apple revealed its latest MacBook Pros on Monday, but we have still yet to hear from the company about its MacBook Airs.
However, rumors are aplenty, and the latest set comes from reputable leaker, Dylandkt on Twitter. This includes a claim that the laptops will sport the next-generation M2 chip, which is a step up from Apple’s current M1—what the current MacBook Airs are running.
Unfortunately, though, it won’t come with the 120Hz Pro Motion display, SD card slot, or HDMI port. There also won’t be Face ID, but Mini-LED is “likely.”
Rumors of release in mid-2022 appear to be confirmed by Dylandkt, as well as the possibility of Apple introducing new color options, similar to the range available for the new iMacs. Plus, the bezels and keyboards will now be decked in an off-white shade, which has also been a consistent rumor.
Overall, its design appears to be similar to the Pros, and will indeed remove the tapered look of the device, as was previously speculated.
Interestingly, Dylandkt also notes that a “current naming candidate” within the company is simply “MacBook.” Not “MacBook Air,” as it has always been known.
Ever since the original 12-inch MacBook, which was discontinued in 2019, no other device has held this name.
The design will be similar to the new MacBook Pro while being thinner, lighter. There will be a binned option under the configuration options. Multiple external display support will be available, at least 2 displays. The color options will be similar to the iMac 24.— Dylan (@dylandkt) October 21, 2021
