Apple plans to launch a new MacBook Air with a mini-LED display and several color options around mid 2022, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said today in a research note obtained by MacRumors. These details line up with previous rumors about the new MacBook Air from sources like Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman and YouTube tech personality Jon Prosser.

Kuo said the new MacBook Air will feature an “all-new design” with a similar form factor as the next MacBook Pro models, which are also expected to feature a mini-LED display and flatter top and bottom edges. Previous rumors have suggested the new MacBook Air will also feature a faster Apple silicon chip and a MagSafe-branded magnetic power cable.

Kuo said it is not yet certain whether the existing M1 MacBook Air will end production after the mini-LED model enters mass production, and this could have an effect on pricing. If the M1 MacBook Air does end production, Kuo said the mini-LED model will probably start at the same $999 price as the current M1 MacBook Air. If the M1 MacBook Air does remain available for purchase, Kuo believes it could receive a price cut.

Apple last updated the MacBook Air with the M1 chip in November 2020.
