The MacBook Air 2022 appears by surprise at the last Apple developer conference . Many speculated that WWDC22 would be a decaffeinated event, limited to software issues from the Cupertino company . However, the firm revolutionizes its fans with the presentation, among other things, of its beloved ultrabook powered by the new M2 chip .

MacBook Air 2022, more features and better performance

The new MacBook Air boasts a new, ultra – thin design with four stylish finishes . The device arrives, in addition to the company’s new chip , with a larger and better quality screen, a superior webcam and several other extras.

Device Features

The new MacBook Air features a 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display , 1080p FaceTime HD camera, quad-speaker audio system , up to 18 -hour battery life and MagSafe charging . Powering this brand-new model is the M2 chip , which features industry-leading power efficiency, unified memory architecture, and bespoke technologies. It includes a next – generation 8-core CPU with improved performance and efficiency cores, and the next-generation GPU from Apple , which now has up to 10 cores .

The team has been created from scratch, sporting a new and super slim design. It measures just 11.3mm thick, and weighs 1.2kg . The sturdy casing is 100% aluminum . Apple has managed to reduce the volume of the product by 20%. Note that thanks to the energy efficiency of the M2 , this new MacBook Air works quietly without a fan .

More laptop details

The brand recovers the MagSafe connector to have an independent and easy-to-connect charging port. Plus, it protects the laptop while it’s plugged in, as it quickly comes loose if the cord is accidentally pulled. Apple ‘s ultrabook includes a pair of Thunderbolt ports for connecting various accessories and a 3.5mm audio jack that supports high-impedance headphones.

The new screen offers a brightness of 500 nits , being 25% brighter than before, and supports 1,000 million colors . And let’s not forget the speakers and microphones, integrated between the keyboard and the screen. The computer captures clean sound using advanced beamforming algorithms , reproduces clear vocals, and has improved stereo separation. In addition, it is compatible with spatial audio, to enjoy Dolby Atmos . The bad news: it is considerably more expensive than its predecessor. It has a starting price of €1,519 , for sale in July 2022 .
