Apple M2 MacBook Air postponed to H2, 2022

The launch of Apple’s redesigned MacBook Air has been delayed for some time. According to a recent report, the launch has been delayed until possibly H2 this year. However, with the upgraded hardware, it seems worth the wait.

We already know from Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter about the delayed launch, and analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has briefed on mass production that would begin in the third quarter of this year. As for the launch predictions, both analysts have similar views, but they seem to disagree on the new hardware specs.

According to Kuo’s latest predictions, although Apple plans to redesign the new MacBook Air, it would use the same M1 chipset as the current-generation MacBook Air. If this prediction is correct, it doesn’t seem likely that many customers would want to buy the redesigned version. The existing version already offers a better deal for those looking for an upgrade in terms of better performance and longer battery life.

Gurman’s predictions go in a very different direction. He hopes for faster performance with the help of an upgrade to the M2 chip. In addition, Apple has a 10-core GPU on board. It seems likely that the new MacBook Air will feature some new colors and include a MagSafe connector, along with a ThunderBolt 4 port on each of the sides. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and wait for the redesigned MacBook Air to be unveiled.
