These are the features we expect to see with the 2022 MacBook Air

There’s a new MacBook Air just around the corner. According BloombergAccording to Mark Gurman, Apple could introduce a redesigned MacBook Air as early as WWDC 2022. With that, some features will most likely be available with this new generation of Mac. Read on as we wrap up what we expect to see on the 2022 MacBook Air.

A redesign is coming to the 2022 MacBook Air

Ever since Apple introduced the 24-inch iMac, rumors of a redesigned MacBook Air were certain. Then, when the company introduced an all-new MacBook Pro last November, it became clear that the Air would be next for a revamp.

While analysts Ross Young and Ming-Chi Kuo initially thought Apple might add miniLEDs to this computer, they now say the company will stick with an LCD display. Even so, a redesign is still expected with white bezels and colored options, as you can see in our featured image above.

MagSafe should be back, but ports are limited

While Apple brought back all the important ports on the 2021 MacBook Pro, it doesn’t look like the company is being as generous with the 2022 MacBook Air. So far, rumors have it that Apple will add two Thunderbolt ports for this machine, one on each side.

That said, a MagSafe connector is expected since Apple just brought it back to the MacBook Pro. Not only is this connector technology lauded by the company’s customers, but it would also help this Mac stand out from the previous design that caused a lot of controversy.

M2 chip debuts with MacBook Air


Apple has said it will no longer introduce another M1 chip. This statement paves the way for second-generation Mac processors. Naturally, there are rumors about the M2 chip. This processor is rumored to be faster than the base M1 model, but not as powerful as the M1 Pro, M1 Max, and M1 Ultra.

As detailed in our review of the new Mac mini, the M2 chip (internally called “Staten”) is based on the A15 chip. Although it has an eight-core CPU, just like M1, M2 will bring a more powerful 10-core GPU.


Rumors also speak of the possibility of an improved FaceTime HD camera with 1080p resolution – since the 2020 MacBook Air still has an HD webcam. The battery will likely be as good as the first M1 model, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard of this upcoming computer.
