According to Mark Gurman, Apple will present this year the direct successor of the MacBook Air 2021 mobile computer. Unofficially, it is said that these devices will be completely redesigned and we can expect a design adapted to the new Apple design trend, which we could see at the premiere of the AiO computer Apple iMac 24 M1. However, visual changes are not everything. The news will also apply to what is “under the hood”, that is, among others, the processor. This year we will face the successor of the Apple M1 SoC, which, according to the aforementioned Bloomberg journalist, will be Apple M2. Unfortunately, the individual may disappoint many potential users.
The Apple M2 chipset will debut with the Apple MacBook Air 2021 mobile computer. Performance, although satisfying, may be an unpleasant surprise for people planning to switch to a newer model.

Apple plans to refresh its portable MacBook Air this year, according to unofficial but highly probable reports. It is expected that the unit will be shown in the first quarter of 2022, most likely in March. Visually, the hardware may refer to the Apple iMac 24 and, as you can guess, there are various color versions. We can also expect an indentation in the upper part of the screen known from MacBook Pro 14 and 16 (2021), new displays and a MagSafe port and a single Thunderbolt 4 port on both sides of the device. There is also talk of eGPU support, which was missing in the MacBook Air 2021.

The computer will use an Apple M2 chip. Probably it is an 8-core unit produced in the 5 nm TSMC technological process. The GPU is a 10-core chip. If Mark Gurman’s predictions are correct, the chipset in question will only offer a slightly higher performance than that offered by the Apple M1 from the Apple MacBook Air (2021) model. The manufacturer clearly wants to separate the said computers from the Pro series, which makes a lot of sense and will certainly introduce a certain amount of order to the portfolio.
