If you have been waiting for Apple to release a redesigned MacBook Air in the next few months, then we have some bad news for you. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is reporting that Apple has delayed the launch of the new MacBook Air until later this year and the entry level MacBook will be launching in the second half of 2022.
Writing in this Power On newsletter Gurman has said that Apple is expected to delay the MacBook Air, which has been previously rumored to feature an all-new design with M2 Chip and MagSafe charging feature.
Previous rumors had suggested that MacBook Air will be launched by the end of 2021 and then later it was reported that it will get released in early 2022. Now the timeframe for its release has shifted to second half of 2022.
Ming-Chi Kuo who is a reliable analyst and remains in the news for his Apple related leaks and predictions expects that MacBook Air production will start by the end of second quarter and the product will be released in September.
Talking about the high-end MacBook Pros that includes the 14-inch and 16-inch models, Gurman says Apple will launch them in 2023 as he does not expect new models arriving in 2022. Gurman says the next generation of high-end MacBook Pros will feature M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.
However he still expects Apple to update the entry level MacBook Pro with a 13-inch display and M2 chip. This MacBook Pro is expected to have the same design as the current 13-inch model.
