Apple held their WWDC22 developer conference recently, in addition to iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS Ventura, which mainly introduced minor changes in functions, Apple also released a brand new MacBook Air, which has been greatly changed since 2018. This is a new generation of Apple MacBook Air that has been missing for a long time since 2018. It uses a new design and a new generation of M2 chips. The price starts from $1,099.
In appearance, the new MacBook Air abandons the standard design and uses the 14/16-inch MacBook Pro design style released last year. The corners are still rounded, but the thickest part of the new body is actually thinner (1.13cm vs 0.41-1.61cm), and even the body weight is lighter (1.24kg vs 1.29kg). Of course, these figures are actually very common in today’s thin and light market.
The screen now also likes to mention the “notch” design of the new MacBook Pro, which Apple calls the Liquid Retina Display, which brings a larger 13.6 inches to the new MacBook Air. It seems that there is a higher screen ratio, the resolution is slightly increased to 2560*1664, and the maximum brightness is also increased to 500nit, but there is no Face ID module in this notch, just an ordinary 1080p camera.
This time the new machine also added a MagSafe magnetic charging interface, but the power adapter will not come with it.
At present, MacBook Air with M2 starts at $1,199 (US) and $1,099 (US) for education, but Apple has not announced the release date, and it will be listed next month. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 starts at $1,299 (US) and $1,199 (US) for education.
