2021 Apple Macbook Air

Apple’s next MacBook Air might be thinner, lighter and include MagSafe

MagSafe might be on its way back to the Mac, according to a new report from Bloomberg.

The new report indicates that Apple is making the MacBook Air’s bezels around its 13.3-inch screen thinner and making the device lighter than it’s current 2.8 lbs weight.

Sources tell Bloomberg that Apple was considering launching a 15-inch MacBook Air but those ideas have been scrapped.

The upcoming MacBook Air would also see the return of MagSafe charging tech, which was last used on the 2017 MacBook Air, along with two USB 4 ports and Apple Silicon chips.

This MacBook Air would be higher-end than the current M1-powered Air, which launched in November.

In addition to the new Air, Apple is planning on adding back an SD card slot on a new redesigned MacBook Pro and possibly removing the Touch Bar.

As indicated in a previous Bloomberg report, Apple is working on an overhaul of their iMac with Apple Silicon and a design reminiscent of the Pro Display XDR.

The new MacBook Air is rumoured to launch at the end of this year or in 2022.
