According to the well-known technology leaker Jon Prosser, this year’s models of Macbook Air will be released in the same colors as the latest models of Imac, ie blue, green, pink, silver, yellow, orange and purple.
The last time we saw colorful laptops from Apple was in 1999 when the Ibook G3 was launched. Just two years later, the fun ended when the five colors (Tangerine, Blueberry, Graphite, Indigo and Key Lime) were replaced by white.
It will probably also be a more powerful processor than today’s M1 chip, but it is still unclear whether the name will be M2 or something completely different.
There are already rumors of support for the new mini-LED rear lighting, but this may delay next year’s model.
Well-known Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman reports now that Apple plans to release an even thinner and lighter Macbook Air in the second half of 2021, alternatively in early 2022.
According to Mark Gurman, the upcoming computer will use Apple’s Magsafe charger and the next generation of the company’s own Mac processor.
The computer is still said to be 13-inch but should achieve a smaller size, among other things through shrunken edges around the screen.
Macbook Air from 2020 has a weight of 1.29 kg. What the new lighter variant will weigh and how thick it will be is still unknown. In any case, the computer is said to come with a pair of USB 4 ports.
