MacBook Air (2022), 13-Inch MacBook Pro (2022) Powered by M2 Chip Launched

At WWDC 2022, Apple unveiled its latest M2 chipset, as well as the company’s first two in-house computers, the MacBook Air (2022) and the 13-inch MacBook Pro (2022). The new models come with the Apple Silicon chip, which was announced at WWDC 2020 as the successor to the first-generation Apple Silicon chip. The MacBook Air is the company’s first MacBook Air laptop refresh since the M1-powered MacBook Air debuted in November 2020. It has the most significant redesign to the MacBook Air series in years and, like its predecessor, runs silently with a fan-less design. The new MacBook Air (2022) and MacBook Pro (2022) both have a 13-inch LCD display and the same full-sized function keys as the MacBook Pro lineup from 2021. The 2022 MacBook Air model has a new chassis that is more uniform in shape, similar to the MacBook Pro models.

Price and availability of the Apple MacBook Air (2022) and MacBook Pro (2022)

The price of an Apple MacBook Air (2022) starts at $1,199. (roughly Rs. 93,300). Meanwhile, the Apple MacBook Pro (2022) starts at $1,299 and goes up from there (roughly Rs. 1,01,000). The older MacBook Air with the M1 chip will continue to be available for $999, according to Apple (roughly Rs. 77,500). The new MacBook Air model will be available in Midnight, Silver, Space Grey, and Starlight Gold colour options through the Apple Online Store, as well as configuration options through the Apple website.

The new MacBook models will be available in India starting next month. The 13-inch MacBook Pro with M2 starts at Rs. 1,29,900, while the MacBook Air with M2 starts at Rs. 1,19,900 (Rs. 1,09,900 for education) (Rs. 1,19,900 for education).

The last-generation 13-inch MacBook Air model was released in 2020, with a starting price of Rs. 92,900 for the 256GB storage model and Rs. 1,17,900 for the 512GB storage model. In the United States, the prices were set at $999 (roughly Rs. 77,500) and $1,249 (roughly Rs. 96,900).

Specifications and features of the Apple MacBook Air (2022)

With 20 billion transistors and a 10-core GPU, the newly announced Apple MacBook Air (2022) is equipped with an M2 chipset, which is an improved version of the first-generation M1 Apple Silicon chip that debuted on the MacBook Air (2020) model. The first M1 chip, as you may recall, had four high-performance and four low-performance cores, as well as up to eight graphics cores.

According to Apple, the new chipset improves CPU and GPU performance by 18% and 35%, respectively, over its predecessor, and is 1.9 times faster (CPU) and 2.3 times faster (GPU) than competing 10-core processors. The new chipset also includes a Secure Enclave, media engine, and neural engine, as well as the ability to connect an external display with a resolution of up to 6K.

Unlike the mini-LED models featured on the 2021 MacBook Pro lineup, Apple has equipped the MacBook Air (2022) with a 13.6-inch Liquid Retina Display. In comparison to the MacBook Air (2020) model, the display is said to have a larger display size of 13.6 inches and thinner bezels. This means that, like the MacBook Pro models released in 2021, the MacBook Air (2022) will have a notch.

The Apple MacBook Air (2022) can be configured with up to 2TB of SSD storage and up to 24GB of unified memory. The laptop has a 1080p camera, which is an upgrade over the 2020 model’s 720p camera. The new MacBook Air features two USB Type-C/Thunderbolt 4 ports, as well as MagSafe charging and a 3.5mm headphone jack. On a single charge, it is said to provide 18 hours of battery life while watching videos, just like its predecessor. With an optional 67W USB Type-C power adapter, the MacBook Air (2022) can be charged up to 50% in 30 minutes.

Specifications and features of the Apple MacBook Pro (2022)

The new MacBook Pro (2022), like the MacBook Air (2022), is powered by the new M2 chipset, and users can choose between up to 24GB of unified memory and up to 2TB of storage. According to Apple, the MacBook Pro (2022) has a 13-inch Liquid Retina Display with up to 500 nits of peak brightness and P3 colour support.

The MacBook Air, like its predecessor, has an active cooling system, and the fans should provide longer-lasting performance at high clock speeds. The MacBook Pro will have the same 20-hour battery life on a single charge as the original M1 MacBook Air and its successor, which was just announced today.
