Apple is expected to unveil new hardware at the forthcoming WWDC 2022 event, according to Apple Insider. The new MacBook Air, in particular, will almost certainly be showcased during this presentation.

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman’s “Power On” newsletter, Apple is planning to release new Macs in the coming months.
