We were never given a specific date of release for Apple’s new MacBook Air with an M2 processor during WWDC in June, other than the fact that it will be available in July.
Apple’s new MacBook Air will be on sale for the first time on July 15th, according to MacRumors, which claims confirmation from a retail source. Pre-orders will begin on July 8th.
This is reassuring in light of earlier concerns that the new MacBook Air would be delayed owing to COVID-related production shutdowns in China. Aside from those who have already pre-ordered a new laptop, we don’t yet know how long it will take for the new model to be delivered. We will learn more about this following the launch.
The new MacBook Air is a significant upgrade over the previous model, featuring a new design (similar to the design of the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro) and a 13.6-inch display with reduced bezels.
In addition to the new M2 chip, which, in comparison to the M1 chip, provides an increase of up to 50 percent in memory bandwidth, 18 percent in CPU performance, and 35 percent in GPU performance, the new Air will also feature a new 1080p camera, a four-speaker sound system, and the new MagSafe power connector.
The new MacBook Air has a starting price of $1,199, but you’ll be able to upgrade it with more storage and memory for a total cost of $2,499 for the most expensive configuration.
