Apple did not specify a release date when it unveiled the MacBook Air M2 during its yearly WWDC keynote. Fortunately, reliable sources anticipate that the updated portable Mac will be made available to the public on July 15.

Pre-orders for the MacBook Air M2 are rumored to start being accepted by Apple on July 15, but will they start a week earlier on July 8? It seems likely that we will discover something in the first week of the new month. Due to its dated design, customers who are holding out for the updated MacBook Air are likely to pass on the new M2 MacBook Pro.
As implied by its name, the M2 controls the device’s internal workings. Customers can purchase configurations with a 10-core CPU, 24GB of combined LPDDR5 RAM, and 2TB of PCIe NVMe storage starting at $1,199 and going up to $2,499, respectively. Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro can be purchased in addition to the previously mentioned price when using Apple’s MacBook Air M2 configurator.
The device’s most expensive configuration, which is powered by the M2, as its name implies, is available to customers for a pricey $2,499 and includes a 10-core CPU, 24GB of unified LPDDR5 RAM, and 2TB of PCIe NVMe storage. Using Apple’s MacBook Air M2 configurator, you can increase the price to include Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro since neither of those programs is included in the price shown above.
Since the transition to Apple Silicon, every MacBook model using a custom SoC has bragged about having a long battery life, and the MacBook Air M2 is no exception. A single charge, according to Apple, will last for 18 hours. Customers who want to save a little extra money can still purchase the M1 MacBook Air on Apple’s website, starting at $999.
