Apple is expected to announce the next generation of MacBook Air with an M2 chip for the hardware releases at this year’s WWDC. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman reported this in his weekly newsletter “Power On.” The MacBook Air lineup is expected to get an update after more than one and a half years.
As per Gurman, the launch was delayed because of the supply chain constraints and closures of factories in China because of a surge of cases. He also mentioned that developers are saying that Apple employees are increasing the use of the next-generation MacBook Air.
“If there’s any hardware at WWDC, it will likely be on the Mac side. The company has been aiming to launch the next MacBook Air with M2 chips at the conference. The recent supply chain crunch due to Covid-related closures in China has complicated that, but developers say that Apple employees are increasingly using next-generation MacBook Airs with their apps. That’s a sign that the new Mac is close.” said Mark Gurman.
Apple will hold the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) this year on June 6 (Monday). The Cupertino-based giant is expected to announce the next version of its operating software, iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, tvOS 16, and macOS 13.
