Apple just unveiled its second-generation silicon, the M2 SoC, and the first device to sport it is none other than the bestselling laptop in the world, the MacBook Air. The refreshed MacBook Air 2022 has several upgrades like a new design, MagSafe 3 charging port, better battery life, etc. However, the M2 SoC is the most significant upgrade to the MacBook Air 2022.
Moreover, according to Apple, the M2 SoC is faster than its predecessor by 1.4x and a whopping 15x times that of its Intel-based model, thanks to the 8-Core CPU and a 10-Core GPU. Even if you aren’t planning to buy this cool MacBook Air right anytime soon, you can have its cool wallpaper. Yes, it’s pretty stunning!

More about M2 MacBook Air
The M2-powered MacBook Air has undergone a design change and now looks quite similar to its Pro siblings in terms of the display and body. Yes, the notch is finally here, and it houses an upgraded 1080p FaceTime HD camera with a three-mic array and a quad-speaker Spatial Audio system.
The Liquid Retina display of the M2 MacBook Air is now 13.6 inches, thanks to the notch. Moreover, it has the highest brightness of 500 nits on any MacBook yet. It also supports a P3-wide color gamut, True Tone technology, and more. The text is crisp, and the video has excellent contrast and details.
The Magic Keyboard of the M2 MacBook Air finally has a dedicated function row while retaining Touch ID. Using Touch ID, you can unlock your Mac, make payments, make in-app purchases, and a lot more. Also, fast charging is here as the device supports 67W charging and can charge from 0-50% in 30 minutes.
The MacBook Air lineup has always stood true to its name; even the MacBook Air weighs just 2.7 pounds and is 0.44 inches thick (or should I say 0.44 inches thin?).
Exciting color options were what we were missing with the MacBooks, and this one finally comes in 4 new exciting colors: Midnight, Space Gray, Starlight, and Silver. I’m in love with the Midnight color variant and feel it looks the best among the lot.
