With Apple WWDC 2022 just around the corner, it’s only right that the new product hype should start to permeate. The scoop – according to Mark Gurman’s Bloomberg column – is that we could see two macs launched. This may include the newly redesigned MacBook Air, however, there is some doubt as to whether this will coincide with WWDC in June.
Gurman said that “Apple is gearing up to launch some new Macs in the next few months. What better place to do so than WWDC? That’s the same venue where Mac’s transition from Intel to Apple’s own chips was announced two years ago. I’m told there are two new Macs coming around the middle of the year or early in the second half. One of those is likely to be the new MacBook Air.”
Rumours of the new Macbook Air at Apple WWDC 2022:
This hardly quells the excitement at all, as Gurman sticks to his original story regarding the release of new Macs this year. Apparently, we are still to see an entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro which will extend the current range. In addition to this, there is also a reimagined Mac mini and a new 24-inch iMac on their way. This is besides the iMac Pro and Mac Pro we’ve been promised, which will most certainly be of interest to DAW users.
If past WWDC launches are anything to go by, it usually takes a few weeks after announcements before anything hits the shelves. Furthermore, it doesn’t quite add up to see a new M2 chip-equipped MacBook Air at a developer-focused event rather than something more pro-orientated. What we’ve heard from Ming-Chi Kuo, another well-known source of Mac rumours, is that the MacBook Air will go into production late in the second quarter of 2022, or even in the third quarter.
