Apple revealed its redesigned MacBook Air with the newly announced M2 chip at its annual World Wide Developers Conference. It features a completely redesigned design, MagSafe charging, and an impressive battery life. A new M2 chip was also made available for the 13-inch MacBook Pro.
With an 11mm thickness and a weight of 2.7 pounds, the new MacBook Air is noticeably thinner and sleeker than its predecessors (1.22kg). The 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display has a brightness of 500 nits and a colour gamut of 1 billion possible shades. In addition, a 1080p webcam has been added.
In addition to the Magic Keyboard, the MacBook Air now offers MagSafe charging capabilities. In addition, there are two USB-C connections and a 3.5mm audio connector.
Video playback can be enjoyed for up to 18 hours on a single charge. It’s worth noting that the new MacBook Air features a completely reworked quad-speaker system built into the chassis.
The M2 MacBook Air comes with a matching MagSafe charging cable and is available in space grey, silver, midnight blue, and starry gold. With the 67W USB-C adapter, it can now charge at a faster rate.
In July, it will cost $1,199 and be available with up to 2TB of SSD storage and up to 24GB of memory as options. M1 MacBook Air, on the other hand, will stay on sale for $999.
The MacBook Pro 13-inch, on the other hand, is largely untouched save from the addition of Apple’s new CPU and the Touch Bar keyboard. Starting at $1,299, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 can be yours.
