The rumor: Apple’s new MacBook Air won’t be out for a few more months still, according to Mark Gurman (86.4% accurate).

  • “It was due to launch either at the end of last year or early this year, but now it should be coming around the second half of the year” Gurman says
  • Apple’s new MacBook Air will be powered by the upcoming M2 chip and be completely redesigned with new colors and MagSafe charging

Sam’s take: At this point, we’ve been waiting on this notebook for quite some time now…and it almost sounds as if Apple pushed this back in order to give the M1 Ultra chip some room to breathe after it just released in the Mac Studio. Either way, this is still shaping up to the MacBook Air upgrade ever so it’s worth waiting for if you can do it.

That being said…the current M1 MacBook Air is an incredible value and it continues to be the best Mac for most people.
