Tim Cook and his crew unveiled the most recent macOS notebooks, the MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air, following the company’s revelation at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) of its most recent Apple Silicon chipset, the M2. The M2-powered MacBook Pro was the first product to hit the market, but it has not been well received by consumers or critics due to its slowed down performance, outdated design, and unclear market positioning.

Apple has already confirmed the release date for the M2-powered MacBook Air, and expectations are strong that this notebook will be well received.

On Friday, July 8th, pre-orders for the MacBook Air will go on sale, with the first computers shipping on April 15th. In the words of Apple:

Apple’s newly revamped MacBook Air with M2 will be available for pre-order beginning Friday, July 8 at 1 p.m. BST, and will begin shipping to consumers worldwide on Friday, July 15. More powerful than ever, the all-new MacBook Air boasts a 13.6-inch Retina display; a 1080p FaceTime HD camera; a four-speaker sound system; up to 18 hours of battery life; and MagSafe charging. The MacBook Air with M2 starts at £1249 for consumers and £1149 for educational institutions, and comes in four stunning colors: midnight, starlight, silver, and space grey. “

Although the M2 chip has a greater cardinal number, it is not faster than the M1 Pro or M1 Max available in the larger professional-focused MacBook Pro notebooks. Therefore, the direct comparison will be to the initial M1 MacBook Air, and a performance rise of about 18% is projected.

Given the throttling and performance issues the M2 MacBook Pro is experiencing, it remains to be seen if this trend will be sustained. Another possibility is that Apple has lowered the effective read and write speeds of the SSD storage by running single SSD chips instead of paired SSD chips, which is another issue impacting some M2 MacBook Pro SKUs.

Ultimately, will Apple be able to meet the needs of its customers? Long lead times in the consumer electronics industry have been caused by supply concerns, and Apple has felt the pinch. When pre-orders open on Friday, demand for the MacBook Air is expected to be considerable, and the delivery date timetable might quickly grow.
