New MacBook Air with Apple M2 delayed until late 2022

According to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple has delayed the release of the updated MacBook Air until the end of this year and will most likely not release new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models until 2023. In his latest episode of Power On, Gurman said that Apple originally planned to release the next MacBook Air with "an all-new design, MagSafe, Apple M2 SoC and more" in late 2021 or early 2022, but those timelines now seem to have shifted. for the second half of 2022.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects mass production of the new MacBook Air to begin in late Q2 or early Q3, suggesting the device could be released sometime in September. 

Gurman also said he doesn't expect Apple to update its top 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models this year. Models with single-chip systems Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max are likely to appear next year. This year's only MacBook Pro is likely to be an updated entry-level MacBook Pro with a 13-inch display and Apple's M2 chip.

In addition to the MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro, the entry-level Mac mini, 24-inch iMac and iPad Pro could also be good candidates for Apple's new M2 platform, but the update timeline for these devices is unclear.
