Apple unveiled two new laptop models at WWDC 2022: the MacBook Air 2022 and the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. These are the first two Apple devices that employ the M2 chip, which is the successor to the M1 that was released late last year.
MacBook Air 2022
The MacBook Air 2022, in general, features a design that is heavily influenced by the MacBook Pro M1 range. There’s a MagSafe charging port on the device, as well as two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports. There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting your favorite wired headphones.
The MacBook Air 2022 is 11 millimeters thick and weighs 1.22 kg. When purchasing the device, users have the option of selecting one of four colors: silver, gray, gold, or dark blue.
A 13.6-inch screen with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,664 pixels and a maximum brightness of 500 nits is included on the gadget. The front camera is integrated in a notch design and can record full HD video. The M2 chip, according to Apple, has excellent performance but runs quietly and does not require a cooling fan.
The 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, and 8-core GPU MacBook Air 2022 will be available for $1,199. If you want a more powerful gadget, go for the version with 24 GB RAM, 2 TB SSD, and 10-core GPU, but expect to pay more.
Users who purchase a new MacBook Air will receive a free 30W charger. For $59, you can get a 67W charger with a faster charging speed. A 35 W charger with two USB-C connections is included with the $1,499 MacBook Air 2022 model.
MacBook Pro 13-inch
The more powerful, more power-efficient M2 chip is the new and most notable feature of the 13-inch MacBook Pro compared to its prior 13.3-inch version.
Two Thunderbolt 3 standard USB-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone port, and a Touch Bar touch strip are included in the 13-inch MacBook Pro. You can opt for the most powerful model, which has 24 GB of RAM and a 2 TB SSD.
This device has a starting price of $1,299 and will be available for purchase in July of this year.
