Apple announces MacBook Air with new M2 chip at WWDC

Apple has launched a new version of the MacBook Air at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The announcement comes after many months of speculation, finally putting to bed an endless round of rumors that a new lightweight laptop was under development in Apple’s secret labs.

Before the WWDC keynote, the MacBook Air was subject to wide-ranging rumors concerning its potential capabilities. Most prominent among the claims was the idea that it would come outfitted with a next-generation M2 chip, signaling the next step in the Apple Silicon roadmap. This was expected to comprise a modest power increase over the M1 in the 2020 MacBook Air.

On the outside, the MacBook Air was slated for a major design overhaul. It was whispered that the machine would ditch its famous tapered chassis for the first time in its history, replacing it with a much flatter shape that would come in a range of bright colors, much like the 24-inch iMac. However, just before the event, some of those claims were thrown into doubt, with tipsters Mark Gurman and Ming-Chi Kuo stating the colors would be much more limited in scope.

Oh, and one more thing — the MacBook Air was expected by some to come with a notch just like the MacBook Pro.

Ultimately, many of these rumors failed to make the cut when Apple unveiled the new MacBook Air at WWDC. But what’s certain is that the company hopes to usher in a new era for its thinnest and lightest laptop.

This is a breaking story and will be updated as more information is announced.
