I’ve been using the M1 MacBook Air for six months now and coming into 2022 with the rumours of a new MacBook Air I thought it would be fun to imagine what this might be.
Design: I don’t see much in the way of changes to the design of the Air given how small it already is. I can definitely see colours coming to the range (think current iMac). I feel that the MacBook Pro design isn’t being shrunken down. Traditionally the Air has always had it’s current look, I don’t see this changing.
With the current ports I get along fine with my two USB-C but could see the addition of MagSafe being added. I’d love the addition of an SD card reader but I think that’s a MacBook Pro feature.
The current M1 should be replaced with a new processor. Don’t expect a Max version of the processor.
The existing screen technology is fine to my eyes. I think that it’ll stay the same, keep the top end for the MacBook Pro.
Price needs to stay the same.
Better webcam please.
Battery life should be better but it’s already stellar.
What do you want to see?
