The rumor: Apple’s next major M-series chip is coming next year in a new MacBook Air, according to dylandkt (81.3% accurate).
- The M2 chip is separate from the upcoming M1X chip, and will come in the first half of 2022 inside a new MacBook
- This source also mentions that the MacBook Air will be colorful, as Jon Prosser (74.2% accurate) had previously reported
Our take: dylandkt has a wildly good track record for these types of scoops, so I would bet on this being the case. Seems like M1/2/3 will be for consumer level hardware and M1/2/3X will be for pro devices.
