Apple’s MacBook Air 2022 revamp has already been rumored to be arriving mid-2022, and now a heavyweight Apple leaker has underlined this, stating that it could possibly be out in about six to eight months.
That is the newest from Mark Gurman’s publication, as highlighted by MacRumors, through which he asserts that he expects the launch to happen in mentioned timeframe, that means that the MacBook Air 2022 may arrive as quickly as subsequent Might.

Gurman additionally notes that there won’t be one other Apple occasion this yr, or any additional new merchandise for 2021, so the leaker is seemingly letting us know that there gained’t be any November launches.
The following MacBook Air is anticipated to be constructed across the M2 SoC and may have a totally recent design – in reality, it’ll be probably the most main revamp of the Air since 2010, Gurman believes. In concept, it’ll take cues from the brand new iMac 24-inch, that means off-white bezels and a number of placing shade decisions, as we’ve already gathered from the rumor mill.
In reality, that is precisely what we heard from one other leaker, Dylandkt, very just lately, who reckons that an off-white shade keyboard and bezels are coming, and a brand new Mini-LED display screen (as seen on the freshly unveiled MacBook Execs).
Talking of which, new renders (effectively, really up to date variations of photographs shared some time again) of what the MacBook Air 2022 may appear to be have been put collectively primarily based on Dylandkt’s leakage. These come from Jon Prosser and Ian Zelbo (which Tom’s Information noticed), and present the laptop computer mocked-up with skinny white bezels, and a notch for the webcam – though Dylandkt did make it clear that they couldn’t affirm whether or not the notch could be current, or not.
Additionally they present the keyboard with a white deck, and the Air having the rumored MagSafe charging port.
Moreover, in his publication Gurman mentioned that subsequent yr we are able to count on a bigger iMac with an Apple SoC, and a brand new Mac mini (the rumor mill beforehand believed that the latter could be arriving this yr).
Evaluation: To notch, or to not notch? That’s the query…
We have to take the renders for what they’re – merely mock-ups of what the MacBook Air 2022 may appear to be, if these present rumors pan out – however the thought of the off-white bezel (and keyboard) is already proving severely divisive. And if it’s accompanied by a notch (as seen on the brand new MacBook Professional fashions), then that’s prone to actually fire up the controversy pot across the laptop computer’s look; the white moderately than black bezel actually highlights the notch additional.
Nonetheless, as we famous above, speculating in regards to the notch appears to be leaping the gun, seeing as Dylandkt was fairly clear about being uncertain on whether or not the notch will occur with the Air (what gained’t occur, apparently, is the ProMotion tech seen on the brand new MacBook Execs which permits for quicker refresh charges with the Mini-LED show).
Relating to the potential launch timeframe, Dylandkt additionally believes that the subsequent MacBook Air will arrive mid-2022, so that may imply June or July roughly, which falls just about in keeping with Gurman’s prediction – though the latter appears barely extra optimistic with that suggestion of a Might launch.
