The most intriguing MacBook still from Apple    could debut at WWDC

According to Bloomberg, new Mac mini, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models could arrive as soon as WWDC this June. But while the first two will likely carry familiar designs, the 2022 MacBook Air is rumoured to be getting a brand new coat of paint. There are rumours that the MacBook Air will follow the lead of the 2021 iMac, introducing a much wider colour range. That’s led to plenty of handsome fan renders imagining some delectable pastel hues, which would certainly inject some fun back into Apple’s laptop range. Elsewhere, we’ve heard that the MacBook Air’s famous tapered design could be on the way out, with a more uniform straight, flat-edged design taking over. And yep, rumour has it the notch is coming too. Whatever happens, it sounds like we’re in for some big changes.

The next generation of iOS is one of the things we can reasonably expect to see at Apple’s WWDC conference in June. The corporation usually uses the summer slot to show off its software, but it’s not unheard of for hardware to come there as well. According to new reports, Apple is testing a variety of new laptops using the much-rumored M2 chip, the follow-up to Apple’s highly successful M1 silicon. One of them appears to be a brand new MacBook Air. (Don’t want to wait? Take a look at the top MacBook Air discounts right now).

  • In terms of specs, Bloomberg says the new Air will feature “eight CPU cores, the components that handle the main processing, and 10 cores for graphics. That’s up from eight graphics cores in the current MacBook Air.” Of all the rumoured upcoming Macs, we’re definitely most excited about the new Air. Having languished without any design love for years, it was almost looking forgotten by Apple. But with the iMac and iPad mini both getting an update last year, it seems the company is finally giving some attention to its older products.
