MacBook Air 2022 Details 

Pricing and configurations

Apple’s trying to keep things affordable, at least its iteration of affordable. The new MacBook Air 2022 will launch at $1,199 ($1,099 for educators). The company is retaining the M1 Air to keep that $999 ($899 education) entry-level price point.

Design

The new MacBook Air 2022 is modeled by the M1 MacBook Pro. As if that wasn’t enough, the notebook comes in four different color schemes, including a regal dark blue. We weren’t expecting the bright hues inspired by the iMacs, but it’s a start in the right way.

Other design highlights include Apple finally listening to the crowd and dramatically shrinking the bezel. However, there is a notch at the top. Despite the addition of a new 1080p webcam, Apple made no mention of Face ID technology. Still, anything is preferable to the previous thick bezels.

Ports

Hello there, MagSafe. The MacBook Air 2022, like the MacBook Pro, will reintroduce the MagSafe charging. However, because this is a MacBook Air, don’t expect too many connectors. In reality, you get two Thunderbolt 4 ports as well as a headphone jack. There is no SD card slot, but it is more of a nice to have than a requirement at this moment.

Display and audio

The new MacBook Air 2022 features a 13.6-inch Retina display with a maximum brightness of 500 nits. Apple boasts it is 25% brighter than its predecessor, which we are keen to put to the test.

In terms of audio, you have a three-mic array coupled with four speakers that should give full, balanced sound. The speakers, like many Apple audio devices, will offer spatial audio for an immersive listening experience.

Performance

And now, the M2 chip, which most of us have been anticipating. The new chip includes a few new cores as well as some ambitious claims. The CPU has 8 cores that are evenly divided between performance and efficiency. It is very similar to the M1 chip. The M2 deviates in the GPU cores, which have 10 instead of 8 like its predecessor.

So, what exactly can this new chip do? Apple claims that the M2 chip is 18% more powerful than its predecessor. In terms of PCs, the business says that it outperforms a 10-core CPU by 1.9x while using 1/4 the energy. Apple claims a 35% improvement in GPU performance over M1.

Battery life

Apple promises all-day battery life and 18 hours of movie playback. The Laptop Mag Battery Test was used, which consists of continuous web browsing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness. To give you an idea, the 2020 MacBook Air lasted 14 hours and 41 minutes on our exclusive test.

When it comes to charging your laptop, you’ll be glad to hear that this is the first MacBook Air to support rapid charging. That implies the 67-watt charger can charge your phone to 50% in 30 minutes. Apple will also provide a charger with two USB-C connectors, allowing you to power an additional device.
