Apple today introduced a completely redesigned MacBook Air powered by the new M2 chip, which takes the M1’s groundbreaking performance and capabilities even further.
With an all-new stunningly thin design, MacBook Air features a larger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display, 1080p FaceTime HD camera, quad-speaker sound system, battery life of up to 18 hours and MagSafe charging. It is now available in four finishes: silver, space grey, midnight and starlight.
“We’re excited to bring our new M2 chip to the world’s two most popular laptops – the MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing. “Only Apple silicon can allow you to build such a thin and light laptop with a fanless design, and this combination of performance and capability.”
Built from the ground up around M2, the 2022 MacBook Air has an all-new design. It measures 11.3mm thin and weighs just 2.7 pounds, and features a durable all-aluminum unibody enclosure that’s incredibly strong and built to last.
MagSafe returns to MacBook Air, giving users an easy-to-connect dedicated charging port while protecting the MacBook Air when plugged in by quickly releasing it if the charging cable is accidentally pulled.
MacBook Air offers multiple charging options, including an all-new 35W compact power adapter with two USB-C ports, allowing users to charge two devices at once. And for the first time, MacBook Air supports fast charging to charge up to 50% in just 30 minutes with an optional 67W USB-C power adapter.
