Among Apple’s WWDC 2022 rumors, a rumor about a new MacBook Air has been circulating. It turned out that in July next year, a model equipped with a new M2 chip will be released. Simply put, the latter surpasses its predecessor M1 in all respects, already very rich in high-end performance. “The M2 opens up the second generation of M-series chips and goes beyond the great features of the M1,” said Johnny Srouji, Apple’s senior vice president of hardware technology. “Thanks to our ongoing focus on energy efficiency, the M2 offers a faster CPU, GPU and neural engine. With higher memory bandwidth and new features like ProRes acceleration, the M2 continues Apple’s incredible pace of silicon innovation for the Mac.” On paper, this new M2 chip is impressive. It remains to be seen what this might do on the new MacBook Air.
In terms of design, nothing changes in this new MacBook Air compared to the model with the M1 chip, except for a slightly larger screen – 13.6 inches versus 13.3 inches. Said Retina display at 2560 x 1664 pixels (capable of playing 4K and 8K video). Other characteristics are much more striking than this slightly enlarged slab. We’re thinking in particular about 18 hours of battery life, which can provide a very restful work day (although obviously it all depends on the activity and tasks requested from the computer), as well as the FaceTime HD 1080p camera, which is ideal for a professional. meetings and personal meetings, as well as a new four-speaker audio system. Not to mention the MagSafe recharge.
