Apple MacBook Air M2 Overview
The MacBook Air M2 has also undergone a design overhaul, in addition to its internals. By 2022, the wedge design will be replaced by a MacBook Pro-like design.
The body is made out of aluminum recycled from scrap. The thickness is 11.3mm, and the weight is about 1.25 kg.
You can now order the MacBook Air M2 in Midnight and Starlight colors in addition to Space Grey and Silver.
A larger 13.6-inch Liquid Retina display and thinner bezels are now included in Apple’s MacBook Air M2. There are over 1 billion colors in the screen, and it can get as bright as 500 nits.
As Apple has redesigned the top so there is more room for its menu bar, it has left behind a bar-shaped notch that houses Apple’s 1080p FaceTime camera.
Thanks to its larger image sensor and efficient pixel technology, it offers twice the resolution and low-light performance of the last-gen solution.
The Apple MacBook Air (M2) is equipped with a quad-speaker setup and a three-mic array. As for the latter, it is backed by Apple’s beamforming algorithm.
Spatial Audio and Dolby Atmos are supported by the speakers. Apple has placed the speaker and audio setup between the display and keyboard in order to fit everything in a small chassis
A new MacBook Air also introduces MagSafe charging to Apple’s affordable MacBook lineup. Users can use the two Thunderbolt ports for other accessories when the charging port is dedicated.
It even supports 67W USB-C charging that can fill up the 52.6Wh battery to 50% in 30 minutes. However, the adapter is optional. The box will only come with a 35W power brick.
In the 10-core GPU variant, there are two USB-C ports that can charge two devices at once.
Rest of the Specs
Apple MacBook Air with M2 processor features a Magic Keyboard with dedicated function keys, Touch ID, and Force Touch trackpad.
Apple even announced macOS Ventura along with the new MacBook Air. Stage Manager, Continuity Camera, Handoff for FaceTime, along with significant improvements to Safari, Mail, Messages, Spotlight, and more, will be included.
