In 2022, Apple is expected to launch a new MacBook Air with a 13-inch Mini LED display. The model should recover the MagSafe charging technology, which was used in the production of older models, and will have 4 USB ports. The brand should also launch the new MacBook Pro line, with larger screens, 14 and 16 inches, and a chip that will be the direct successor of the Apple M1.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kou, who has hit previous forecasts about the company’s products, also says Apple is likely to begin mass-producing the new MacBook Pros in Q3 2021.
According to rumors, the new MacBook Air would be the first Apple notebook to have the M2 chip. The new semiconductor should have the same number of CPU cores but a higher number of GPU units — one or two more than current-gen MacBooks.
Apple is investing more in Mini LED technology. The new lineup of MacBooks Pro and Air should implement the new screens that improve the user experience.
Mini LED screens offer some benefits of OLED technology — a technology widely used by the very high definition TVs on the market — such as smooth color patterns and contrast that don’t burn the viewer’s eyes. Apple’s first device to adopt the display was the iPad Pro, released this year, with its 12.9-inch screen.
MagSafe should return to a new line of MacBook Pro.
The new Macbook Pro is expected to retain some features of recent models, such as support for HDMI cable and SD card slots — just like the MacBook Air, the MagSafe charger is also expected to return to the new lineup of notebooks. The controversial OLED bar should disappear in new Apple models, according to leaks.
It is noteworthy that the new computer must have the M1X chip, which brings incremental improvements to the current-generation processor, according to Kuo. It should keep processing power, but with an upgrade in graphics performance.
