Apple has been releasing a slew of Mac gadgets recently as it transitions away from Intel processors and toward its own Apple Silicon chips. It’s time for a revamp after unveiling the MacBook notebooks with the M1 chip a few years ago. At its March presentation a few days ago, the Cupertino-based technology giant was to announce a new MacBook Air powered by the M2 chipset. That didn’t happen, and now there is word on when the device might be released.
According to the latest reports, Apple’s new MacBook Air has been delayed; it will now release in the second half of this year.
What’s more, Apple had planned to release the new MacBook Air with “an all-new design, MagSafe, the M2 processor, and more” by the end of 2021 or early 2022, as per Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter. However, that date is now pushed back to the second half of 2022.

Furthermore, he claims that the new MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch variants will be released next year, in 2023; and would most likely be powered by the M2 Pro or M2 Max CPUs.
Apple might start producing MacBook Air in later second quarter or early third quarter
Apple could begin mass manufacturing of the new MacBook Air in the late second quarter or early third quarter; according to another report from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. This is consistent with the launch taking place in the second part of this year.
To summarise, the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro versions with a 13-inch display are slated to be released in H2 2022. Plus, they should be available for purchase shortly after their announcement. The next-generation Apple Silicon M2 chipset is most likely to power them.
