Apple’s new M2 MacBook Air could find its way to customers and storefronts by mid-July.
While we know that Apple plans on releasing the new MacBook Air in July, the company did not provide a date when it announced the updated model at WWDC 2022.
According to a retail source who spoke to MacRumors, the new M2 MacBook Air will be available starting on Friday, July 15, with preorders going live on Friday, July 8.
This could be the case, as Apple typically opens preorders on a Friday, with devices appearing on store shelves and shipping out a week later. However, Apple generally does not tell third-party retailers about release dates this far in advance.
The new M2 MacBook Air boasts a thinner, lighter body than its predecessor. It has a larger display, thinner bezels, a notch, and a 1080p webcam. Thanks to the M2 chip, it’s got an 18% faster CPU, a 35% faster GPU, and gets upwards of 18 hours of battery life. It starts at $1,199 and maxes out at $2,499.
