According to Apple, M2 MacBook Air reservations will be accepted starting on Friday, July 8, with shipments beginning one week later. The device was initially unveiled last month.
The machine from Apple has a fresh 13.6-inch Liquid Retina screen that is 25% lighter than the display on the MacBook Air from the previous generation. Apple’s new M2 CPU, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, a four-speaker audio system, and four new finishes are also included in the 2022 MacBook Air.
Nearly none of these upgrades are present in the new 13-inch MacBook Pro, which was also unveiled at WWDC 2022. It lacks additional colors, a larger screen, a better camera, and a MagSafe connection. On paper, it is identical to the late-2020 13-inch MacBook Pro, besides the M1 chip being replaced by the new M2.
Prices for the base model of the newest MacBook Air with 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD storage start at $1,199 / £1,249, which is $200 / £250 higher than the base model of the current MacBook Air M1. The MacBook Air is also available in four other color options: Midnight, Starlight, Space Grey, and Silver.
The machine’s battery life is advertised as 18 hours for streaming video, and while this is ideal, it’s probable that it will still last all day for the majority of practical use. In just 30 minutes, a 67W power brick allows charging to 50%.
If you’re seeking discounts on the new MacBook Air 2022, all is not lost. Apple’s new machines could see some early back-to-school sales. The Apple 2022 back to school promotion actually takes $100 off MacBook Air M2 presales and includes a $150 Apple gift card.
It’s not necessary to purchase straight from Apple. Many Apple resellers will be happy to sell you a MacBook Pro, and some of them might even be giving preorder discounts.
You might assume it’s too soon for MacBook Air 2022 discounts, but in reality, merchants move quickly to provide savings on brand-new Apple items. Soon after the start of preorders, we anticipate seeing the first offers.
