The Spring Apple Peek Performance event have just finished, and we have the first rumours about a new Apple product, a new MacBook Air. This information has been leaked by a long-standing Apple pundit, the TF International Security analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. But he has told that it will use current-gen M1 chip instead of the M2 silicon as the rumours said.
The analyst has tweeted about this new product and what it will have after the event. In the tweet, he says that the device will adopt a completely fresh design and form factor. They will offer new colour options, after the advice of the American brand that a fresh green flavour will be incorporated to the colour options for the iPhone 13 and iPhone SE 3.
Another rumour that was in this new Apple product was that it could adapt the same Mini LED display that in the iPad Pro, but it does not. That suggests MacBook Air will stay positioned as an entry-level bit of Apple hardware, with portability and design rather than raw power again its main selling point.
This information is not official, so the date we can buy it has not been announce. But Ming-Chi Kuo has said that we can have it by late Q2 or early Q3. The hardware of all Apple products has been refreshed in Autumn, and with the traditional announcement in September of new iPhone, the date will be what Kuo has said. The price has not been revealed too, but it will round $2,600.
